The Boston blues
For the first year in its history, “The Urban Nutcracker,” created and produced by Tony Williams, will be presented at the Shubert Theatre. This venue change has led to a number of other new additions to create a bigger, grander version of the Boston-centric show. The endearing production, which runs Dec. 20 through Dec. 30, takes the classic “Nutcracker” story and grounds it in the streets of Boston’s South End, with diverse dancers and musical styles representing the city.
