My Arm is Up in the Air Mar 25, 2011

by Eric Pitsenbarger

There's a giant intellect hammering away inside the slim form of Charles Smith. Angelic troubadour on display along with the other old world instruments merrily pinging small hammers, filling our entrance into the studio theater with a birdsong of lilting, sweet thrumming. Warming up, his delicate, precise hands nevertheless apparently sometimes hit the wrong keys...as his face will tell you.

My Arm is up in the Air Mar 25, 2011

by Sean Nelson

In Tobias Wolff’s story “Bullet in the Brain,” a curmudgeonly book critic is shot at point blank range by a bank robber whose linguistic clichés the critic can’t help mocking. The bullet’s physical speed of 900 feet per second, becomes “a pathetically sluggish, glacial pace compared to the synaptic lighting” inside the critic’s skull.

Catherine Cabeen leads a tour at SAM this Friday Mar 16, 2011

by Sarah

Catherine Cabeen will be leading a My Favorite Things tour at SAM this Friday, March 18th, from 6:30-7:00. Catherine bills the tour as "highly opinionated" tour that looks at the intersectios between the visual and performing arts. It should be a great precursor to her show Into the Void at OtB this April.

We Are Released Mar 11, 2011

by Lyall

Sarah Michelson has said that experiences and the unknown are more important to her than explanations, but while Devotion, her new and brilliant piece, arrives at something like math-based bliss, the first part of it is a long spoken text with a soloist: a contemporary re-telling of the story of the Garden, the Explusion, Adam and Eve making babies up to age 900,

by Tonya Lockyer

There is singularly nothing that makes a difference a difference in beginning and
in the middle and in ending except that each generation has something different
at which they are all looking. By this I mean so simply that anybody knows it that
composition is the difference which makes each and all of them then different

Devotion Mar 11, 2011

by Eric Pitsenbarger

Devotion is evident in the details of this abstract rendering of life itself. The stage is an installation of galvanized support pipes, lifting and framing in reverence several exquisite formal portraits (Sarah & Richard?), held on high and lit with a shipyard's worth of arc lights. Enough  light to illuminate a stadium.

by Jessica

When Sarah Michelson first came to OtB in 2005 she redesigned both the exterior and interior of On the Boards and brought in a slew of community dancers to fill all of our spaces, from the parking lot across the street to the admin offices.

kudos to on the boards... Mar 2, 2011

by

from Carie Esquenazi

I just saw the 12 Minutes Max last night and after the great combination of good old country music, an incredibly touching and heartfelt monologue, stewed tomato madness, guys and girls dancing in little black dresses and a man talking to (and then beating up) his little stuffed piggie, I had a revelation: On the Boards is my artistic defibrillator.
