A new musical by Scott Guggenheim, Shannon Guggenheim, and Stephen Guggenheim, The MeshugaNutcracker! is a wondrous and witty original Chanukah celebration for the entire family.
Originally presented as a live theatrical event, the charming characters from Chelm folklore burst to life on stage. Now, families can enjoy this original Chanukah musical with a new cast recording, available on CD. With music by Tchaikovsky from his Nutcracker Ballet, the soundtrack immediately feels familiar, but add in original lyrics and tales of Chanukah from the days of the Maccabees to the year when Israel became a state and the score is transformed into something entirely Jewish, though still delightfully accessible to all who partake. "Members of the tribe" will devour its Jewish artistry and traditions while those who grew up celebrating in December without latkes can hum along to the very familiar Tchaikovsky Nutcracker tunes.
