Actress, dancer and choreographer Debbie Allen's fun, fresh spin on The Nutcracker returns to Royce Hall for the holidays. The Hot Chocolate Nutcracker gives the seasonal favorite a rich new cultural context and updated characters, and features a lively contemporary score with original songs from multiple-Grammy-winner Mariah Carey and others. After young Kara receives a nutcracker filled with hot chocolate, she falls asleep and journeys to enchanted lands, including Candy Cane Lane, Egypt, the Rainforest, Jazzland, Russia and the Land of the Kimono Dolls. Little ones will have no trouble following along thanks to the narration by three wisecracking mice: Harvey, Schmink and Buckey. Allen herself appears in this fun holiday musical adventure.

Quotes & Highlights
- Laurie Anderson was the first artist-in-residence at NASA, she wrote the entry about New York for the Encyclopedia Britannica, and she broke the mold of contemporary performance when she exploded onto the scene.
- "An acutely humane observer, finding warmth and humor in stories about the ordinary turned exotic." --New York Daily News
- "Laurie Anderson ... has broken through and made some of the most interesting art of the late 20th Century ... earning as she goes a reputation as one of the world's premier performance artists." --Wired
A major force in the American cultural landscape, Laurie Anderson is one of this era's most prolific and farsighted artists, playfully taking our imaginations beyond the boundaries of the expected with her provocative mixed media extravaganzas. Now, following the great success of her last work Happiness, today's most celebrated performance artist returns to UCLA Live with the second in a series of intimate, low-tech solo works.
Inspired in part by her recent stint as artist-in-residence at NASA, Anderson's The End of the Moon will feature a blend of stories, songs and instrumental music, exploring the contemporary meanings of freedom and time, spirituality and consumerism, in an attempt to create a true portrait of this country at the beginning of the century.
