McCarter Theatre present Ayad Akhtar's searing, Pulitzer-winning play about prejudice in post 9/11 America. Set over the course of a single dinner party, this one act drama introduces us to successful lawyer Amir and his artist wife Emily. They are hosting a work colleague and his wife for dinner, but when the subject of Amir's latest client, a local imam charged with financing terrorism, is brought up, the evening devolves into a heated debate about race and religion.

American Repertory Ballet: The Nutcracker

November 23-26, 2016

Joined by students from the Princeton Ballet School, the American Repertory Ballet's production of The Nutcracker is a delightful family evening for audiences young and old, and a wonderful way to ring in Christmas. Going strong for over 50 years since its first season in 1964, this New Jersey holiday tradition features a cast of over 100 performers, as well as fresh new scenery in its opening act. Directed by Douglas Martin, this long-running holiday production has garnered favorable reviews, and is one of the most successful companies in the region.

A Christmas Carol

December 9-31, 2016

An integral part of McCarter's theater season every year, A Christmas Carol is the definitive holiday show for all the family. Based on the book by Charles Dickens, this celebration of humanity and openheartedness follows the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, a cranky, penny-pinching business man who's taught to true meaning of Christmas by three spirits - the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future - who visit him on Christmas Eve.
