I went via Red Line, and it was pretty easy.

It's also in a neighborhood with lots of pubs and restaurants to go out before or after.

Description

Rhinoceros

By Eugene Ionesco

Directed by Alex Gelman  

“I am alone and they are all together.”  

Rhinoceroses are loose in the streets. Berenger does not care. While the citizenry fails to make heads (horns) or tail out of an increasingly chaotic situation, our hero begins to realize that everybody around him is gradually changing into pachyderms. Considered by many to be Ionesco’s finest play, Rhinoceros tracks one man’s lonely efforts to hang onto his humanity, while everyone around him abandons theirs.
