What is the Donkey Show? I Know You’re Curious…

Taking time to relax will keep you sane as a part-time MBA student! This post is part of our ongoing series featuring fun activities in Boston.

Looking for something fun and different to do on a Saturday night? The Oberon in Harvard Square is an interactive theatre that has some of the most unique shows in the area. One of my favorite shows there is the Donkey Show. It is truly an unforgettable experience where the audience is immersed in the entire performance. Imagine scantily clad performers in glittery costumes dancing, singing, and roller-skating around you! It is a disco-themed show inspired by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Show up ready to dance and move around to make space for the performers to move through the audience. Don’t be surprised if you are invited to dance on top of one of the boxes with one of the performers!

This amazing show takes place every Saturday night, usually at 10:30pm, at the Oberon. Sometimes there are 2 shows on the same night; be sure to go to the later show if you want to end the rest of the night with a dance party after the show. The music continues playing and the alcohol continues flowing until the venue closes.

Tickets for the dance floor (standing room) are $25 regularly, and $15 for students at the door the day of the show. If you prefer, you can also sit at a table either on the upper mezzanine or on the side of the stage for $45 per person. LivingSocial and Groupon also often offer discount tickets.

I personally prefer the dance floor to get more of the interactive experience. So go dig out those hot pants and/or bell-bottoms and get your disco fever on! (Costumes are strongly encouraged, of course.)
