Without getting bogged down in the “size matters” debate, let’s just say that big, satisfying things happen at the small, cozy Onyx Theatre. Over the years it’s given us alternative pleasures, including Naked Boys Singing and a female Hamlet. This year alone saw a fabulous Sweeney Todd, a sterling One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and an engrossing The Laramie Project. Don’t forget the numerous specialty shows—stand-up comedy, improv, burlesque and cabaret. All this in an intimate, 100-seat box of a theater. So if you must have the “size matters” argument, take it to the adjoining fetish shop.
