>> From the Dinner-and-a-Show Department: The first 100 people through the door to see Michelle Ellsworth’s “Phone Homer” at On the Boards on Thursday get a free Dick’s burger with their ticket. Video artist Ellsworth’s “Phone Homer” is described as a “one-woman, multimedia portrayal of Clytemnestra.” It uses Skype, a kinetic alphabet — and hamburger sacrifice.
>>From the See-It-Here-First Department: Watch the inventive, never-dull Degenerate Art Ensemble for free at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Moore Theatre. What’s the occasion, you ask? DAE has been invited to create a new take on the Philip Glass-Robert Wilson work “Einstein on the Beach,” which they’ll present next month in New York. (Wilson did the inviting.) DAE wants to share its 20-minute in-progress interpretation, and some info about “Einstein” via a documentary.
