The House Theatre of Chicago's The Nutcracker is a fantastical deconstruction of E.T.A. Hoffmann's time-honored holiday story, with lots of humor and heart -- and no ballet. This fresh theatrical interpretation centers on young Clara's journey to save Christmas. With the help of a magical nutcracker given to her by her beloved Uncle Drosselmeyer, she'll bravely fight the Rat King to save her family. This modern holiday production weaves together riveting dialogue, astonishing puppetry, original song and spellbinding imagery to tell a heartwarming story of love, loss and hope. Learn More

The sound was WAY TOO LOUD. We left at intermission because I got a headache. The songs all sounded the same (except for the jazzy one) and it was challenging to decipher the lyrics. I was pretty disappointed and embarrassed (for the person I brought with me).
Created and Composed by Kevin O’Donnell
Kevin O’Donnell’s enveloping, rich musical scores for The House have propelled the Sparrow to flight, Valentine to victory, and Houdini to battle Death. His original compositions now come front-and-center as The House weaves American folk stories and tall tales into a rich tapestry of all-original music. This theatrical concert is carefully focused on vocal and rhythmic dynamics, echoing the clarity and power of African and Native American folk music. Each song is a story into itself, some familiar, some forgotten, connecting to our musical roots to the churning of our early history.
