    In the Beginning

    This "wild woman dum dum show" by CB Goodman reimagines the Genesis story from a new perspective in order to free the beginning from shame, rejection, and labels. Inflatable friends. Ballet. Apocalyptic disco. In the Beginning uses comedy, satire, nontraditional storytelling , dance, puppets, and a pool party aesthetic to joyfully queer a repressive narrative.
    Through Feb. 11. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $15-100.
