Jay Edwards and Waverly T. Lucas II discuss the upcoming presentation of the Urban Nutcracker which will be at the Ferst Center For The Arts running from Nov. 21-24.
The first Nutcracker of the season, Urban Nutcracker takes place on Atlanta’s own Sweet Auburn Avenue in the 1940s and opens the weekend before Thanksgiving. Enjoy the soulful celebration, the majestic journey, the whimsical and mysterious characters such as the Reggae Ragdolls, the sultry Arabian dance, the spins and leaps of the Black Russian, Mother Spice and her tumbling Spice Drops, the bubbly Coca Cola Pas de Six, and the elegant Brown Sugar and her Chocalatier. Urban Nutcracker is to the Nutcracker as what The Wiz is to the Wizard of Oz.
