The Washington Ballet's ingenious take on this holiday favorite is set in the wintry, historic D.C. of old. In Septime Webre's version of the timeless ballet, George Washington becomes the heroic nutcracker -- which makes perfect sense considering his legendary set of wooden choppers. Set to Tchaikovsky's beautiful score and staged with magnificent sets and costumes, there are waltzing cherry blossoms, dancing sugar plums and other clever adaptations to enchant young and old, making this particular The Nutcracker a beloved family tradition.

NETworks Presentations, LLC and Blue Man Productions are pleased to announce that the new theatrical touring production of Blue Man Group will stop in Washington, D.C., at the Warner Theatre.
The critically acclaimed show that USA Today calls “an ecstatic experience,” Blue Man Group is best known for its widely popular performances that combine music, comedy, and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment. A live band accompanies the Blue Men with haunting, driving rhythms. The family party atmosphere created at the live events has become the trademark of the Blue Man Group experience.
This marks the first theatrical production of Blue Man Group to tour North America. The performances feature classic Blue Man moments as well as brand new content.
Blue Man Group on tour also features a new physical design centered around a massive LED curtain and high-resolution screen, creating an entirely new visual experience.
“Until now, we have never mounted a touring version of our theatrical production,” says Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton. “The main reason for this is we needed to find a way to transform theaters of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and of the Blue Man himself. Our goal with this production, as with all of our productions, is to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
About the Ticket Supplier: Warner Theatre
The Warner's special place in the history of Washington began in the 1920s when dozens of grand theaters and moviehouses lit up downtown. Built first for vaudeville and silent movies, the Theatre was opened as the Earle Theatre in 1924.
The Earle switched to a movies-only policy in 1945 and in 1947, owner Harry Warner, one of the Hollywood's Warner Brothers, visited Washington and told his tour guide Julian Brylawski (one of the original builders) that since he owned the theatre, his name should be on the marquee. Thus the Earle Theatre became the Warner Theatre.
