The Sexiest Holiday Show in Chicago!

Welcome to The Buttcracker: A Nutcracker Burlesque

Celebrating FIVE Years of Alternative Holiday Fun!

Chicago’s favorite sexy, alternative spin on the holiday classic returns in a brand new 5th Year Virtual Holiday Variety Show!

Pivoting from our usual programming, The Buttcracker: A Nutcracker Burlesque will celebrate the past four years of holiday fun in an all new virtual show, now streaming on demand December 25th-January 6th.


When a distraught and lonely quarantined Clara gets a butt-dial from her Buttcracker, the two join forces to reminisce on their journey together and the friends they met along the way. Join past performers and guest stars as they make your season bright, bringing laughs, wonder, excitement, and joy for your viewing pleasure at home!

About the Live Show:

This burlesque-cabaret meets ballet-extravaganza was a combination fairy tale and exotic trip down the rabbit hole with the best of Chicago’s nightlife entertainment.

A twist on the original story and a live event not to be missed, highlighting the world of burlesque, boylesque, magic, sword balancing, circus, dance, and more, celebrated as one of Chicago’s favorite alternative holiday shows!

Come follow Clara and her Buttcracker on a wild hallucinogenic trip from a boring-AF holiday party to the Land of Sweets where they battle rats, save the day, and learn that body and sex positivity are to be celebrated!

One part parody, one part variety show, and altogether fun!

Leave the kids at home and enjoy a night out for the most raucous holiday show in town!
