This world-renowned production tells the story of a nutcracker who comes to life, taking its owner, Clara, on a fantastical journey through a magical world populated by the rose queen, sugar plum fairies and an army of evil rats. The enchanting tale is performed by companies large and small during the holiday season, as a beloved tradition. The spectacular dances and incomparable score by Tchaikovsky have cemented themselves in the hearts and imaginations of popular culture, enduring for decades as a classic.
The astonishing true story of former Filipina First Lady Imelda Marcos' rise to power and subsequent fall to infamy is transformed into an immersive, groundbreaking theatrical event by Talking Heads frontman and acclaimed visual artist David Byrne. Propelled by a pulsating dance beat that cleverly charts four decades of popular music, The Public Theater's award-winning disco popera "sets a new standard for audience participation" ("The New York Times") through its innovative staging -- including a remarkable 360-degree scenic and video environment -- by director Alex Timbers ("Rocky", "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson"). You'll dance in the aisles shoulder-to-shoulder with the actors, attend simulated political rallies and even learn the latest Manila dance steps to the show's acclaimed score by Byrne and big-beat DJ Fatboy Slim -- all while delving into the fascinating life of one of the 20th century's most talked-about figures.
