Best of Boston

2005 Best Theater, Alternative

Zero Arrow Theatre

This Harvard Square spot was designed for experimentation, and that’s exactly what the American Repertory Theatre is doing with its flexible, intimate new venue. The unadorned black-box design allows the theater and actors to adapt to any performance, while the ART’s planned collaborations with other local cultural groups, such as World Music and PEN New England, promise a steady flow of interesting productions.
