United We Brunch is coming back in April. Tickets are on sale right now!

If you're craving a Nutcracker fix this season, you might as well see it performed by the best: The Cincinnati Ballet’s acclaimed version of the holiday perennial stops at Playhouse Square this weekend.

Dec. 6-8, 7 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 9, 1 & 7 p.m.; Sun., Dec. 10, 1 & 6 p.m.
