Love Conquers All

Pointless Theatre presents their adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s iconic ballet with a reimagining of their very first production. This highly visual spectacle features Pointless’ distinctive blend of dance, pantomime and puppetry, and weaves a fantastical tale of the extremes of love.


This production cements the status of Pointless...as one of the best young companies in the region...Pointless is gaining a toehold in the increasingly crowded D.C. theater world with a style that feels completely, exuberantly its own...everything on this Pointless evening is delightfully en pointe.
— The Washington Post
