Manhattan Movement & Arts Center presents The Knickerbocker Suite on December 15 and 16 at 7:30pm and December 17 and 18 at 7pm at the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, 248 W. 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues). Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students. Tickets are available by visiting manhattanmovement.com/calendar.
The Knickerbocker Suite features New York City landmarks, such as The Statue of Liberty, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and NY sports teams, weaved into the time-honored holiday tale of The Nutcracker. Classic Nutcracker scenes like “The Land of the Snow” will be transformed to a snowy frenzy of shoppers dancing in and out of stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s for last minute gifts, while “The Land of Sweets” will be accompanied by street vendors and roasted chestnuts. Perhaps one of the more well-known scenes, “Mother Ginger and her Polichinelles,” will be played by the Statue of Liberty and dancing immigrants who just arrived from Ellis Island.
