A hit off-Broadway and internationally, this inspiring musical parody shows the funny sides of a woman's "change of life." Four ladies with seemingly nothing in common but a black lace bra meet by chance at a lingerie sale in a department store. They poke fun at their woeful hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, wrinkles, night sweats and chocolate binges. With classic tunes from the '60s, '70s and '80s pushing the action along, these diverse women create a sisterhood as they realize that menopause is a shared experience that doesn't have to be suffered in silence.

I loved this event! It felt nice to do something festive for the Christmas season. The production was so awesome! Even with it being two hours, it seemed to fly by. The seats were really good considering we got tickets on late notice. If you are able, you should def. catch this show. It was fun and one of a kind :)

I have seen several different takes on The Nutcracker (including San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest Ballet). This one is good, a larger than local but smaller than others production. The local flair makes it special. I recommend it.
The Washington Ballet’s artistic director Septime Webre offers up a vintage take on The Nutcracker that transports audiences back in time to historic Washington and an A-list party on the Potomac — starring George Washington as the heroic Nutcracker and King George as the villainous Rat King, with swirling snowflakes, to-die-for costumes and Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. When the curtain rises on the second act, the stage bursts with waltzing cherry blossoms, dancing sugar plums and other enchanting adaptations that have made Webre’s Nutcracker a Washington tradition with raves from the critics and sold-out crowds.
