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.

It was 2 hours of non-stop laughter! This was by far the most entertaining show we've seen in a long time, probably ever. The actors were outrageously funny with amusing dance numbers and hysterically funny and clever songs. The costumes and sets were perfect! If you missed it, be sure to see it next time.

Killer rabbits, flatulent Frenchmen, flying cows and the Knights of the Round Table populate Monty Python's Spamalot, the multiple Tony Award-winning musical based on Monty Python and the Holy Grail and co-written by former Python Eric Idle. The show tells the legendary tale of King Arthur's quest to find the Holy Grail, with a few twists. Along with the aforementioned rabbits and Frenchmen, there's also a 50 percent chance of pestilence and famine as Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot and Sir Galahad. They meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight and the Knights who say Ni in this hilarious musical.
Running time is approximately 2 hours 10 minutes, with one 20-minute intermission. Content is not recommended for audience members younger than 13.
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.
