The Onion Cellar

Last night, we saw the ART's new production of The Onion Cellar. They've taken the new space at Zero Arrow and turned it into a cabaret, complete with tiny tables and a real bar (and that must've been interesting to negotiate!).

It's a vehicle for the Dresden Dolls, and it's exactly the sort of thing I love to see ART do. Amanda Palmer seems to be immensely talented, and I can easily see the ART triumvirate wondering if they could catch lightning in a bottle. It's not quite there, because it's not quite a play. But it's fascinating and new, and you've got to take your shots.

I've had good luck this year at the theater.
