The story centers around an African American family in Harlem at Christmas, highlighting the centrality and significance of the grandmother in African-American culture, the resilience of Black American families, and Harlem as a center of the African Diaspora.
The re-creation process of The Harlem Nutcracker will be carried out in 3 phases, with a main stage production set to debut in Seattle in 2021, on the 25th Anniversary of its premiere. This workshop production is phase 1 of the process and will focus on Act 1, “Party Scene” and Act 2, “Club Sweets” (“Land of the Sweets” in the traditional ballet).
