Slutcracker Somerville Tickets
Slutcracker TicketsFor those who love The Nutcracker, then this parody might be the next best thing if you haven't gotten enough of the classic tale. If you happen to love the electrifying power of a burlesque show, then The Slutcracker is for you. The Slutcracker recounts the tale of the heroes of The Nutcracker but offers a more adult retelling of the story. Clara and Fritz are grown-up and fall more than just in love with one another. For a better understanding of just how adult this show is, the Cavalier is played by the Dildo Prince. On its original opening in 2008, the show was sold-out.
Revenge Is Best Served ColdHow did something like The Slutcracker come to be? Vanessa White, the show's director and choreographer first auditioned for The Nutcracker. She had been part of many ballet shows in the past and even studied with a ballet company since she was a child. While she had been in many productions of The Nutcracker before, she was told that she was too big to be allowed to dance in the production. In response, she created The Slutcracker. A burlesque show that allows women to take pride in their shape, size and skin color, The Slutcracker has seen great success since its original opening.

What's The Slutcracker's burlesque experience like in Somerville?If you've never been to a burlesque show before, then you likely have no idea what you're getting into. First and foremost, burlesque is a show made for adults. The same can be said for The Slutcracker. It's typically a lot of almost-nude women dancing around stage and singing. You can often find men who are also mostly naked. Some burlesque shows do offer full nudity shows as well. The Slutcracker showcases a lot of skin, a lot of glitter and yet still maintains all the same themes, music and characters that you would expect from The Nutcracker.
Does The Slutcracker use the same music from The Nutcracker?Yes and no. While it does utilize the same songs, you'll experience a different version of the famous songs. Because the mood or themes of the show are slightly different, the music needs to reflect that. While magic and mysticism are still important, this show also features adult themes, electrifying performances and that added dash of burlesque fun that makes burlesque shows unlike anything else. Sometimes the music might highlight a trumpet note or make the bass run a little heavier to sex the music up. You'll still be able to recognize the music from Tchaikovsky. It's just sexier.
Does this show have any restrictions?Because of its adult content, The Slutcracker is only for adults 18 years and older. This is not a show for children.
