The disco-fueled interactive dance party known as The Donkey Show, very loosely inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, puts you smack in the middle of the action in a funky lounge setting. Featuring two full bars and a dance floor, the Diane Paulus-created wonderland was inspired by Studio 54 in its heyday, when celebrities and art icons would mix and mingle with kids from Queens, and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack would be shaking the speakers. While you and the rest of the audience drinks, dances to disco classics or just checks out the action, the motley crew of characters in this glammed-up, sex-fueled version of Shakespeare's play re-enact the hilariously chaotic tale of a magic elixir that wreaks havoc at the nightclub. But it's mostly just a cool boogie-filled bash. Learn More

I liked this show quite a bit! It was a bit of a slow starter but it really built up and had some amazing performances. The Hula Hoop and rope performer was especially talented. I'm always a big fan of the interactive nature of the shows at this venue and have been to a number of them.

It was everything I ever want from a Friday night at once - crazy, beautiful performance, amazing dancers, fantastic music and I got to dance and drink the whole time. Best night I've had in a long time. I'll definitely be going back!

AcousticaElectronica_, the resident company of the American Repertory Theater’s club-theater space OBERON, presents some of the most innovative music from well-established and hot, up-and-coming producers and composers. Bach meets a dance club back-beat, Carmen’s habanera meets techno, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata blends with trance for a listening experience unlike anything you have ever heard before.
This ultimate dance party becomes an immersive experience for the audience. Dancers, symphonies, aerialists, operas, live musicians all happen around every inch of the space to keep the audience guessing at every turn. A classical world becomes the technicolor world of the dance club as the audience escapes from their real lives to experience a night of dream, abandon, and ecstasy…
