It's easy for holiday-themed events and concerts to veer into the cheesy.

However, The Hip-Hop Nutcracker — which hits the Majestic Theatre on Thursday, December 5 — actually seems like something that may bring a fresh approach to holiday entertainment.

The night will open with a short set by legendary rapper Kurtis Blow, best known for his hit “The Breaks.” He'll also stick around to emcee the rest of the show.

Combining Tchaikovsky with modern choreography and a DJ, a violinist and a cast of a dozen all-star dancers, the show follows Maria-Clara and the Nutcracker Prince as they go on a dream adventure. This time their trek takes them through New York City, where they battle a gang of mice, visit the Land of Sweets and learn the lessons of the holiday season.



Seems like a show where you could take along your niece or nephew to earn extra points with your Tia — and still enjoy yourself.

Tickets ($39.50) are still available.
