A curious thing happens when Reese Waters takes the stage: The more soft-spoken and laid-back this comic becomes, the louder and more hysterical the crowd reacts. With Waters at the mic, red hot comedy's never been so cool. A D.C. native, Waters began his stand-up career in Manhattan, where "New York" magazine labeled him one of the city's "Ten Comedians to Watch." A successful appearance on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" earned him spots on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and the "Late Show with David Letterman". The co-host of ESPN's "UNITE", Reese has also hosted "The Daily Line" on the Versus Network, where he interviewed celebrities ranging from Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose to Queen Latifah and Mike Tyson.

Centro-Matic is one of several projects spearheaded by multifaceted singer/songwriter, Will Johnson. Like contemporaries such as Wilco and Ryan Adams, the band attempts to combine rollicking indie rock with healthy doses of alternative country twang. Johnson formed the band in Denton, Texas in 1995, originally treating it as a side-project to other groups he was playing with at the time. By 1997, Centro-Matic was a fleshed-out band that began to horde the majority of his at turns melancholic and visceral songwriting output. Whether crooning a heartbroken, introspective ballad or carrying a stomping roots-rock track, Johnson's talents as a vastly underrated modern songwriter continue to shine through in Centro-Matic.

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.
