Kennedy Center Theater Lab

Open Run

An American theatre institution, Shear Madness is the longest running non-musical show in American history. It's been running in Boston at the Charles Playhouse for over 30 years, and has enjoyed hugely successful productions the world over. Now it continues in Washington DC for its 26-year open run at the Kennedy Center, in time for the holiday season! Part comedy farce and part murder mystery, no two shows are exactly the same!

Kennedy Center Opera House

Until January 22, 2017

A glorious celebration of five thousand years of Chinese culture, Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music, integrating technique and influence from both East and West. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from an ancient feudal period of time.

Kennedy Center Opera House

January 25 - 29, 2017

Coming to the nation's capital in January 2017, American Ballet Theatre's Swan Lake is one of the world's best loved ballets, making a rare touring visit outside its Metropolitan Opera House home. Telling the timeless story of good and evil, and love and tragedy that has enchanted audiences since 1877. Set against Tchaikovsky's haunting score, the ballet tells the story of a beautiful princess - Odette- who is turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's spell, only to return to her human form at night. But her curse changes when she is happened upon in a moonlit forest by a lovelorn prince....
