John Roberts, Kyra Phillips Perform With the Washington Ballet

By A.J. Katz 

One of Washington’s best-known TV news couples takes the stage Saturday night. And no, it won’t be for a political roundtable.

Fox News’s chief White House correspondent John Roberts and CNN’s Kyra Phillips will be performing walk-on roles in The Washington Ballet’s The Nutcracker on Saturday, Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. They will be performing the roles of the Ambassador and Merry Widow.

Roberts is excited for the performance, and also a bit nervous.


“I have always loved the Washington Ballet’s presentation of The Nutcracker.  It’s done in a very D.C.-themed presentation,” he told TVNewser. “I’m looking forward to see how I look in a beard, but not looking forward to watching all the suitors at the party trying to woo the affections of my wife Kyra, who will play the Merry Widow!”

Good luck to Roberts and Phillips.
