Now in its 60th year, the pioneering Paul Taylor Dance Company stages several of its acclaimed pieces at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Dubbed the "naughty boy" of dance by Martha Graham, Taylor's not only one of the greatest modern choreographers of the 20th century, he's also one of the 21st century's most daring innovators, still creating well into his 80s. His 16-member company embodies his continuing genius and nurtures new talent -- Tony winners Twyla Tharp and David Parsons are among its many distinguished alumni. Expect a wonderful show of kinetic movement, enthralling storytelling and surprising humor from one of the true legends of the form. Learn More

This show was one of the best Nutcrackers I've been too and I went to the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion Nutcracker with the Kirkov Ballet, which was also good. There are many wow factors (no spoilers) in this show and it has high production value. I can't really believe what I paid through goldstar because honestly even if you paid full price it would have been worth it. The seats I received where row 18 slightly off center. Its 2 hours with an intermission in between. My highly active 8 year old boy was able to make to intermission and then it was a welcomed break. I would definitely recommend this to others.
For 26 years, David Wilcox's production of The Nutcracker has been seen by over a million people all over Southern California, throughout the Asian continent, as well as on television. In this annual traditional performance, Tchaikovsky's ballet comes to life as the young Clara goes on exciting journey through a battle between the Mouse King and a Nutcracker comes to life and into the Land of Sweets. Featuring Melissa Sandvig from So You Think You Can Dance.
