Trim the tree. Hang the stockings. Stay up late to see the scantily clad and supersexy dancers, aerialists, and opera singers at Company XIV's Nutcracker Rouge.
If that last bit isn't part of your annual holiday tradition, it should be. Because the erotic burlesque retelling of the classic Nutcracker tale is the highlight of the season for us. From the moment you step inside the dance troupe's Théâtre XIV in Bushwick—fashioned in its signature Versailles-meets-Brooklyn aesthetic—you're immersed in a very artful bacchanal, complete with flowing champagne and absinthe cocktails.
Tickets are on sale now for the 11-week run, November 14–January 26, and we suggest getting yours as soon as possible. Whether you splurge on the VIP champagne couch for two ($425–$565) or snag a single seat at the bar ($105–$145), you won't regret it.
