The Red Shoes is almost more big-budget Broadway musical than ballet. With a sweeping score, dramatic narrative, and lavish production values, Matthew Bourne's production does nothing by halves.

It's a real shame that you can't buy a ticket to a performance of Lotus, an exhilarating night of tap dancing and jazz excellence. That's because the performance was a one-night only, sold out performance full of incredible tap dance and music.

The New York City Ballet's technique, grace, and variety of programming is impeccable. The night feels like a quick tour through the dance and music of the past 100 years, starting with the jazz of George Gershwin and ending with the frenetic electronica of Dan Deacon. There's something for everyone here, whether you prefer your ballet classical or contemporary.

Ballet is always beautiful, but too often it also feels inaccessible and outdated. With Ballet Across America, The Kennedy Center banishes these concerns with a program full of relevance and joy. Misty Copeland has brought together three diverse companies who differ in style but share an impressive level of talent and passion. The cumulative effect is a vivid reminder of how effecting ballet can be.

Perisphere Theater's Copenhagen left me feeling uneasy. Maybe this was this was exactly what I should have been feeling; the script, examines the morality of two scientists who worked on the atomic bomb. But despite the strong performances, something is missing from this production.

There is little worse than a play that doesn't understand its purpose. They Don't Pay? We Won't Pay!, written by Dario Fo and produced by Ambassador Theater at the Mead Theatre Lab, cannot decide what it wants to be. Instead, the production vacillates between heavy-handed social commentary and overacted comedy. Despite a few strong performances, the production is weighed down by its cumbersome message and leaves the audience confused instead of inspired.
