I prefer my aphrodisiac entertainments rodent-free, but Austin McCormick, artistic director of Company XIV, apparently disagrees. Hes taken the E.T.A. Hoffman story of a little girl, a brave nutcracker, and a villainous rat king into a tale told with erotic, sensual, and opulent flair. Partial nudity features.
Fridays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Dec. 10. Continues through Jan. 9, 2010
