Nutcracker Turbo (and Other Love Stories)
A.R.T. Institute Season
May 20 and 22 - 26, 2012

Nathaniel and Clara’s relationship is cracking at its seams.

When Nathaniel travels across the ocean to seek relief from his chronic nightmares, Clara loses herself in an online fantasy world of Nutcrackers and Mouse Kings.  In this thrilling mash-up of two famous tales by E.T.A. Hoffmann—"The Sandman" and "The Nutcracker & the King of Mice" — two lovers in trouble must battle childhood demons and videogame villains to find their way back to reality…and to each other.  Nutcracker Turbo (and Other Love Stories) returns to Cambridge from a sold-out world premiere run in Moscow.

Featuring the A.R.T. Institute Class of 2012!
