The MeshugaNutcracker! is a full-length musical comedy that features the wonderfully silly sensibilities of the folklore of Chelm (a fictional town of fools) underscored by an invigorating, Klezmer-ized orchestration of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” with original lyrics that celebrate Chanukah. Add in dancing dreidels and surprise guest stars and you have the perfect recipe for a holiday gathering for all faiths and all ages. Some might call it crazy…we call itThe MeshugaNutcracker!

Night after night in the 1950s and ’60s, network game shows kept Americans glued to their sets waiting to see who would become the next big winner. With original music that celebrates a bygone era, audience participation, unpredictable contestants, and fabulous prizes, THANKS FOR PLAYING! brings this fast-paced world to life. This original musical is a kick for anyone who loves TV game shows like “What’s My Line,” “Price is Right,” “Queen for a Day,” “Beat the Clock,” “I’ve Got a Secret” and “Match Game.” The creators pay homage to all of those game shows and many more in this new musical, which combines the excitement of live TV game shows with the scandal of the 1950s rigged quiz show investigations.
