May 23 - August 22, 2014
Celebrate the spirit of the roaring ‘20s with live music, glittering dancers, and jaw-dropping circus spectacle.
Get dolled up in your finest threads and put on your dancing shoes! Join as the A.R.T.’s OBERON is transformed into the Oberon Social Club, a hot new speakeasy guaranteed to liven up the scene. The cool cats and dapper dames from the Boston Circus Guild will amaze you with phenomenal acts, including acrobatic feats of strength, astounding juggling, high-energy hooping, titillating burlesque, and glamorous aerial performances, all set to the sounds of the hippest electro swing and jazz in Boston.
Enter the underground cabaret and get front row seats to a spectacular show both on and offstage. Seedy thugs mingle with drunken socialites, flappers dance their cares away, and the band keeps the joint jumpin'. Through it all, the club's proprietor will have to make deals with bootlegging gangsters, keep away from the fuzz, and manage one sassy diva. Will he be able to balance his unstable partnership with an unsavory crime boss and his dream of having the coolest club around? Will the business of the underworld be too much for him? Wild times are sure to ensue!
Two shows every night! Following the late show, stay for a swingin’ dance party that goes until 1:00 am.
