Theater/Food: O.N.C.E. in Hell: Dante's Inferno in 10 Courses, December 15, 16, 17

Abandon hope, all ye who join
Cuisine en Locale and our friends

home of the American Repertory Theater’s The Donkey Show

for a culinary and theatrical interpretation
of the venerable 14th c. work by
Dante Alighieri,
Divina Commedia:

We are dying for you to join us for a tour of the nine circles of Hell. a.
$80/person, includes ten courses of locally sourced food,
but does not include beverages* or gratuity.

This ONCE will take place thrice, on the 15th, 16th and 17th of December
Performances begin at 6pm, and the show will run for three hours b.c.,
to be followed by a dance party in heaven (natch)

a. No. It will not just be 'spicy'. Come on, give us a little bit of credit.
b. Everything will be eatable, and not scary. We've only just done gross for ONCE Upon a Midnight Dreary, this ONCE is going to be tastilicious and complicated in other ways.
c. While we do usually at least try do a vegetarian alternative, we simply cannot for ONCE in Hell. Sorry vegevores, you are either gonna have to eat local meat, or wait for the next ONCE. Ask nicely and maybe we'll do a full veg one sometime :-)

*There is a full bar at OBERON and we will also be offering special text-appropriate cocktails all night long
