Fodor's Expert Review Dixon Place
Founded in the 1980s, this small nonprofit theater continues to host worthy, and frequently unconventional and hilarious, performances of theater, music, dance, and more, with a focus on new works. Its popular HOT! Festival of Queer Performance, held in July, is the longest-running LGBTQ festival in the world. Whatever you're seeing—of the some 1,000 shows held here each year—the Lounge, Dixon Place's cheerful bar, is a great place to meet up before the show and connect with artists after.
