On the Boards, which was founded by artists in 1978 and won a Stranger Genius Award in 2006, has been Seattle's premiere theater to see what dance, theater, and performance artists from around the country and around the world are playing with right now. A few of the many, many artists who've appeared on OtB's stages: Laurie Anderson, Bill T. Jones, The Wooster Group, Spalding Gray, Dumb Type, Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Sankai Juku, Gisèle Vienne, Bruno Beltrão, chelfitsch, Romeo Castellucci, Jan Fabre, John Jasperse, Constanza Macras and Dorky Park, Back to Back Theatre, Faustin Linyekula, Mark Morris, Pat Graney, Dayna Hanson, Amy O’Neal, Reggie Watts, Zoe Scofield & Juniper Shuey, and Crystal Pite. OtB has cultivated a fiercely loyal following over the years—audience members might love or loathe any given show, but always seem eager to come back for the next one.

On the Boards has solved the communal dining conundrum by starting with an actual community: the people who go to see the innovations in dance/theater/etc. that happen there. The Studio Suppers take place downstairs in the Studio Theater on select opening nights, then everyone goes up to see the show. Awesome chefs and free-flowing wine make this pretty much the best thing ever. This season: Germinal with PK & Wiley Frank (Little Uncle), Sep 25; The Man Who Can Forget Anything with Donna Moodie (Marjorie), Oct 9; Opposing Forces with Tarik Abdullah (A DJ and a Cook), Oct 23; Bleed with Manu Alfau (La Bodega), Nov 20; Now I'm Fine with Ba Culbert (Tilikum Place Café), Dec 4; Cineastas with Mike Easton (Il Corvo), Jan 29; The Evening with Derek Bugge (Pair and Frank's Oyster House), Feb 19.
