Interesting adaptation of a classic. It can be scary for small children (age 8 and up- cursed once). The venue needs to turn on the HEAT!!!!

Quotes & Highlights

“A riveting reinvention” —The Chicago Sun Times 
“A laudably different kind of Christmas show” —The Chicago Tribune 
“Guaranteed to be unlike any other Nutcracker you’ve seen" —


The House presents The Nutcracker, a bold re-imagining of the classic E.T.A. Hoffman tale. 

The first time the House created Christmas magic was back in 2007 at the Steppenwolf Theatre with the original run of The Nutcracker. It received amazing reviews like the ones below and it also received Goldstar’s Nutty Award. It was the most beloved production of The Nutcracker in the country for that year. And now it’s back!
