7:30 p.m. Dec. 16, 1 p.m., 7 p.m. Dec. 17. Here’s a recipe for an interesting Nutcracker – you re-set the story in New Orleans circa 1928 and include visits to places like Egypt and an Indian Rainforest to Jazzland and Candy Cane Lane. Then add in contemporary music by Mariah Carey, Arturo Sandoval, Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen, and James Ingram. That is what writer/director/choreographer Debbie Allen has done with her magical, marvelous Hot Chocolate Nutcracker, which she stars in along with Tisha Campbell-Martin, Carlo Imperato, and Tichina Arnold.
