Sometimes, during the holiday season — as much as you love your friends and fam — you just need a break. Chatting and reminiscing is exhausting! And if you’re anything like us, the chance to sit in a theater and soak up some weirdly wonderful art (without having to talk to anyone) is the perfect escape. Lucky for you, we’ve found a bunch of shows that fit the bill. Check them out and grab tix below.

Bushwick, Brooklyn
Burlesque, Opera, Dance

No big deal, but Company XIV’s sparkling reimagining of the beloved “Nutcracker” ballet has been called “dazzling and genius” by The New York Times. See it for yourself before it’s too late.
