Fall of the House: Back to blow your mind June 4th!

On June 4th, after a torturous absence, Portland will be reunited with its favorite improvisational sketch comedy show, Fall of the House.

I was initially exposed to Fall of the House last 'season' (which took place in February) and I fell in love with the characters and the stories. In just one season, relationships blossomed, shifted and died – and we watched them all. I might have even cried a little. Don't tell anyone.

As explained in an earlier Pipeline post about FOH (that's just a little nickname I came up with), the plot is written, but the actors improvise the manner in which the audience travels from point A to point B with the cast.

The cast is quick, funny, highly sensual, and they effortlessly suck the audience in.  The show  is easily accessible to those of us who may not be into the Portland theater scene, which I definitely am not.

What I immediately felt was that the show wasn't pretentious in its organization or delivery, and that anyone can relate to the friendships and the love experienced in the episodes.

June 4th marks the season five opener, and according to the organizers, this season brings 5 new characters and a multi-media opening sequence (I love anything that flashes or moves on a screen)!

As usual, the episodes feature music from local bands and will be chalk full of an additive stronger than tobacco, heroin or Aardvark sauce.

The season runs for four weeks, with each episode playing Friday-Sunday of the week. With a cult following and growing attention from people outside the Portland theater/performing arts scene, the tickets and season passes are sure to go quickly!
