   The Adrienne Arsht Center presents The House Theatre of Chicago’s "The Nutcracker." Set in modern day, this holiday classic is not a ballet but rather a play about one loving family’s recovery from a terrible and surprising loss. Based on the original E.T.A. Hoffmann story, the play centers on young Clara’s journey to save Christmas and bring her broken family back together. 7:30 p.m. Additional performances through Dec. 30. Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Carnival Studio Theater, Miami. $45. Details: (305) 949-6722 or


   The Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre presents Jason Robert Brown’s musical "The Last Five Years," featuring Broadway star Janet Dacal and Christopher A. Kent. The musical explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. The story chronicles the young couple’s romance in a new and exciting way: her story starts at the end of their relationship; his begins on the day they met. Wednesday-Saturday 8 p.m. Sunday 2 p.m. Through Dec. 30. Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables. $15-$48. Details: (305) 444-9293 or
