So there I was scrolling Facebook when I had to do a double-take. A sponsored advertisement came up on my feed for The Slutcracker.

Sound off, a promotional video started playing and, from what I gathered it's a burlesque parody of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker. Something tells me it's not toy soldiers coming to life in this one.

Well, I just couldn't help myself. I had to make double sure this was a real production. So away I clicked to The Slutcracker website.

Looks like the ol' Slutcracker has been an institution in Massachusetts for over a decade and now with COVID they've transitioned to offering SLUTCRACKER: THE MOVIE. You can see it in full for yourself from the comfort of your own home for just $15.

Scrolling the site I notice one individual with a funny hat. Upon further inspection, it was not a hat at all, but the tip of a...well...you know. (Hey, gotta keep this site somewhat clean.)

The show does keep the original Nutcracker music and story arc but the rest sure ain't your grandma's Nutcracker. According to The Times of London, "The Dry-Humping Clowns Added To The Enjoyment."

Continuing down the rabbit hole I had to watch the trailer. Curious? Check it out:

And look, this article is in no way shaming the production. I'm sure it's filled with talented people and a funny storyline. I was just surprised to learn that it existed. And c'mon, the name Slutcracker is nothing short of a riot.

The Slutcracker may not be for everyone but if you'd like to see The Slutcracker for yourself you can rent it here.
