Buttcracker: A Nutcracker Burlesque
Dec 12

Chicago’s favorite sexy, alternative spin on the holiday classic returns every Thursday in December at 8pm at The Den Theatre!

This burlesque-cabaret meets ballet-extravaganza is a combination fairy tale and exotic trip down the rabbit hole with the best of Chicago’s nightlife entertainment. A twist on the original story and an event not to be missed, highlighting the world of burlesque, boylesque, magic, sword balancing, circus, dance, and more!

Come follow Clara and her Buttcracker on a wild hallucinogenic trip from a boring-AF holiday party to the Land of Sweets where she battles rats, saves the day, and learns that body and sex positivity are to be celebrated.
