A Radical Fairy Realness Ritual: My Date With A Stranger for Taylor Mac's Songs of the American Right Dec 15, 2015

by Tessa Hulls

When Marley Blonsky told me that she was “the least artistic person ever,” I mentally tented my fingers into an evil-genius pose and cackled with (silent) maniacal glee. In my ongoing social experiment to bring performance art virgins to On the Boards for the first time, Marley was precisely the participant I was looking for.

by Caitlin Sullivan

By Caitlin Sullivan and Mallery Avidon

Why is it so hard to talk about things you actually like? The catharsis of being recognized gives way to the terror of being seen. 

 

MA: 
All I really want to say is GO SEE THIS SHOW

Looking for an acceptance & emotional freedom in a "Liberal" performance in a liberal city Dec 14, 2015

by Pal Makuso

As Taylor Mac expressed himself in his interview by Diana Nollen on Hooplanow.com: while us usually presents poetry in a relatively neutral way so audiences can hear the words without the reader's bias, that's not the case with his performance.

Audience Review | Predator Songstress Dec 8, 2015

by Pam Winter

The Predator Songstress was a performance of contrasts. The Songstress, a woman of a 1000 facial expressions, portrayed a depth of feeling and the life in her eyes told of a story of loss.  The intensity of the acting and beauty of the dance and music, evoked in me emotions of desperation.

Degenerate Art Ensemble: thoughts by Ben Dec 5, 2015

by Ben Stevens

Skylar and Ben went to Whole Foods on their way to the performance to get raspberries and a salad respectively. Skylar also needed coffee, and Ben discovered there was a large area dedicated to eating and drinking beers on tap and such. He couldn't believe people would want to eat dinner at a grocery store.

by Tessa Hulls

Before sitting down for a drink in the lobby, the only thing I knew about Jarvi Kononen was that he had never been to an On the Boards performance. As part of the OtB Ambassadors Program, I am taking my role as the liaison to a foreign country literally and am using my +1's to bring strangers to On the Boards for the very first time.
