Light Up Your Holidays with “The Meshuga Nutcracker!” AND Benefit Kehillat Israel!
Kehillat Israel invites you to join us at “The Meshuga Nutcracker!”, a full-length musical comedy that features the wonderfully silly sensibilities of the folklore of Chelm (the fictional town of fools) underscored by an invigorating, Klezmer-ized orchestration of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite”, now with original lyrics that celebrate Hanukah! Judah Maccabee’s triumphant saga and accounts of perseverance during the Holocaust, as well as the celebration of the first Hanukah in the new state of Israel, emerge with a genuine sense of wonder as the Chelmniks tell eight stories that pay tribute to the holiday.
“Jew and non-Jew alike will delight in this original musical celebrating all things Hanukah. Blending Tchaikovsky’s beautiful score with witty lyrics and traditional Jewish songs, The Meshuga Nutcracker! is a non-stop cavalcade of Hanukah fun. Who needs Tiny Tim when we’ve got a super-sized hero like Judah Maccabee?”
