This holiday season TWC is making the Yuletide gay. We’re taking over the biggest holiday tradition there is, The Nutcracker at the Washington Ballet, and turning it (or at least the intermission) into a gay bar on Thursday, December 11. They've offered us 30% off tickets.

On the 10th anniversary of his highly-acclaimed production, choreographer Septime Webre is planning some special surprises for his celebrated all-American Nutcracker. Set in 1882 Georgetown, this gorgeous production showcases the grandeur of The Washington Ballet’s international roster of dancers and the majesty of Tchaikovsky’s music. Replete with swirling snowflakes, cherry blossoms and historical characters, including George Washington as the heroic nutcracker, The Nutcracker has become a tradition for generations of family and friends to celebrate the holidays. Tis the season, isn't it?
