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.

Tomorrow's Legs is made up of stories inspired by our memories, however true or false. Choreographer Tiffany Mills, experimental theater artist Peter Petralia, editing advisor Kay Cummings, and performers Jeffrey Duval, Luke Gutgsell, Whitney Tucker, and Petra van Noort, mix words and movement to excavate the past.
We remember a father's surprising retort, a missing dog, and a forever-lost brother. These memories are triggered by a freshly squeezed orange, a tiny relic in the attic, and seven stitches above the eye. We intersect our collective past by traveling from Quito, Ecuador to Hamburg, Germany. Vicious partnering, delicate gestures, straight-up story telling and a touch of foolery combine as we dig into the crevices of our mind. Memory, with all its richness and failings, will be our connective tissue.
