If you haven't yet been able to attend a performance of the American Repertory Theater's "The Donkey Show" at the OBERON in Cambridge (or you just want a second thrill), then this might get your glitter-loving heart racing: The W Boston will host two exclusive performances of the psychedelic, hip-shaking interpretation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in their W Lounge on Aug. 9 ... for free.
The performances are part of the hotel's Midsummer Night's Masquerade evening that features a five-course Jean-Georges gourmet dinner at Market followed by the pop-up rendition of the show. Tickets for the dinner are $150, with a portion of the proceeds going back to supporting the American Repertory Theater. The performances are gratis on a first come, first served basis. Aug. 9, performances at 8:30 and 10 p.m. Dinner tickets are available at MarketByJGBoston.com for $150 each. W Boston, 100 Stuart St., Boston. www.marketbyjgboston.com
