intro to hell

intro to hell

On October 24, Cuisine en Locale and the American Repertory Theater joined forces to create the second annual ONCE in Hell: Dante’s Inferno in Ten Courses.


Outside the OBERON Theater, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This one-night-only play and locally-sourced meal was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Courses ranged from Lust (oyster shooters from Peter’s Point, Island Creek) to Heaven (Parker pumpkin cheesecake), accompanied by respective theatrical interpretations.

JJ Gonson, head chef (slash architect, playwright, honcho, wonderwoman, etc.), asked me to capture the extraordinary night from behind-the-scenes.

I’m excited to announce I’ll be posting a new installment every Sunday for the next few weeks. See you next week for more HELL.
