When Marie receives a beautiful nutcracker for Christmas from her mysterious Uncle Drosselmeyer, it comes to life as a handsome Prince. The pair battles the wicked Mouse King and begins a magical journey to reach the Sugar Plum Fairy. Performances are through Dec. 28. See Playbill’s Listings for details.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart.
