June 12 - September 16, 2018

A true cultural phenomenon, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton is changing the face of the modern musical. An exhilarating historical epic, that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., this record-breaking Broadway musical traces the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's most important (and colorful) historical figures.

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!

Hamburg Ballet: The Little Mermaid

Kennedy Center Opera House

Until April 2, 2017

Returning with their dark and enthralling fairytale ballet for the first time since 2013, Hamberg Ballet currently reigns as one of the leading European ballet companies in the 21st century. Following the original story by Hans Christian Anderson, the lovely mermaid saves and falls in love with a prince after saving him from a shipwreck. Entering into a deal with the sea witch, she exchanges her voice for a chance to walk on dry land with legs to win him back. Unfortunately, the prince is convinced that a neighboring princess saved him and falls in love with her instead. Will the mermaid prevail? Or will she carry out an evil act to gain her heart's desire?

Family Theater

Until April 2, 2017

Three decades after renowned Tony Award-winning English director Peter Brook first brought The Mahabharata to stage, a brand new production based on the epic Sanskrit poem arises. Helmed by Brook, Battlefield is a timely distillation of the main theme and story of his narrative theater masterwork. The magic of the surreal adventure, as well as it's thought-provoking subject matter, still holds today.

April 4 - 16, 2017

A Broadway phenomenon since its inception in 1975, Chicago puts the BAD in, well bad-ass dames. A scorching musical satire on celebrity and crime, Chicago is a fearless portrayal of the pursuit of infamy that rings true in any decade. Set in 1920s Chicago, the tale focuses on two women both accused of murdering their lovers, and their insidious journey to freedom, justice be damned. The world's longest musical revival is currently on a hugely successful North American tour, so break out the fishnet gloves, tap shoes and practise your jazz hands!

Built in 1971 to realize the late President Kennedy's ambitions to bring culture to the American public, the Center has seen over 300 productions across ballet, theater and concerts created and stage at the complex. December 2014 saw the start of an ambitious expansion project that would reopen access from the Center to the Potomac River, as well as easier access to lower Georgetown and provide more space for visitors and performers to engage with.
