The holidays are quickly approaching, and that means copious amounts of food, family, and stress. The perfect antidote? An afternoon at the theater, of course. Bring along the extended family (Or just go alone!) Here are five shows to check out this year:
1. Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker
An afternoon at The Nutcracker is the perfect diversion from an otherwise hectic holiday season. This classic story comes to life with an energetic production by Boston Ballet.
2. Bedroom Farce
This rollicking comedy—the latest offering in Huntington Theatre Company’s 2016-2017 season—is a hilarious tale of marital misunderstandings. Take your wacky Aunt to this fun night at the theater!

4. Cirque Dreams Holidaze
Hailed by the New York Daily News as a “delicious confection of charm, sparkle and talent by the sleigh load,” Cirque Dreams: Holidaze involves everything from soaring acrobatics to classic holiday musical numbers. We hear Santa makes an appearance, too.
