Donald Byrd’s The Harlem Nutcracker Returns!


Over the past few years, an exciting part of our growth has been the workshopping of Donald Byrd’s The Harlem Nutcracker and we are thrilled to be returning to On the Boards!

This year’s iteration of the production is a “teaser” showcasing everything except for the last 20 minutes of the show. It has many of the final costume elements and some of the less elaborate scenic elements. The show’s final moments are a surprise we are saving for the completed premiere!
