Not your typical Nutcracker, Austin McCormick’s erotic Nutcracker Rouge is a neo-burlesque adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet, combining theater, scantily-clad dancers, and daring circus acts. Guaranteed to keep you awake, the show, which just extended its run at the Minetta Lane Theatre, is so naughty that no one under 16 is permitted to attend.
Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Dec. 26. Continues through Jan. 12, 2013
