WW Review here:

About the play:
A divey bar in the Bronx. Danny at one table. Roberta at another. “Me, I’m twenty-nine and I cant stay the way I am for too fucking long” says Danny. And Roberta feels the same. Driven to the edge of endurance by alienation and self-loathing, these lonely strangers are ready to try anything to get out of their own heads. Described by the LA Times as “a foul-mouthed romantic fairy-tale with bloody knuckles,” Shanley’s masterpiece gives us a ringside view of the thoroughly damaged duo as they grapple and grope their way through one transformative night.

Action/Adventure is extremely happy to be trying on a new hat this spring and producing its first published play from an established playwright. While original, ensemble-driven comedy (such as serial hits Fall of The House and Captured by Aliens) has always been the company's bread & butter, Action/Adventure is expanding its artistic aspirations this spring to the producing of scripted works. This well-known, but rarely produced piece, John Patrick's Shanley's Apache Dance, Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, is the first exciting step in that evolution.

    I’d definitely like to go because, well frankly aside from an “Anne of Green Gables” field trip when I was too young to remember I’ve never seen a real live play, and this sounds like it is right down my alley.

    This sounds fucking awesome!

    I can identify with alienation and self-loathing. I would be interested to see how these characters cope and develop.

    So excited that this rolled off my tongue…

    Once upon a F***in time,
    in a screwed up city up northwest way…
    There sat an a*****le that wanted to see a play.
    Danny and the Deep Blue Sea,
    Girl won’t you see this sh** with me,
    She said” this b**ch is broke,”
    No worry girl you can trust this folk
    I got tickets from the pipeline
    Tears to wipe, don’t gripe or wine

    My partner performed in this play once, and it would be a great surprise for him to see it from the other side of the stage.

    This looks so weird and neat!

    Because Shanley’s stage plays, especially his early works, need to be experienced live—not read or viewed on a screen. It’s commendable someone is still putting on his shows.

    Hey commenters! This is Noah from Action/Adventure Theatre. Super excited to see that you all want to come to the play. It is really fantastic and we’re really proud of it. Here’s our latest review:

    Please note, Thursdays are pay what-you-will night throughout the run and tickets are just $15 for other nights. A steal of a deal to see the great talent we’ve got onstage.

    PDXPipleLine- if this comment get drawn as the winner please redraw. I’ve already seen the show. And loved it!

    It’s always fun to see how productions change as they expand their genre. The story sounds intriguing and like something I find interesting – self evaluation an the struggle to become someone different and hopefully better.

  12. Hayley March 8, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    Oh hell yes!! I’d love to see this. (**Spirit fingers to my computer screen**)

    I have a friend in from Salt Lake City, and I need something arty to prove how great PDX is!

    I loved Fall of the House, and could use some twisted romance in my life these days!

  15. April March 8, 2012 at 7:45 pm #

    I would love to take my husband to this, for a great night out.

  16. Toby March 8, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    Would like to try something new and get out of the house this weekend.

  17. Brooke March 8, 2012 at 10:43 pm #

    Sounds fascinating, and I haven;t been to a play in forever. Don’t have a plan yet for date night this week, this could be perfect!

    Love the theatre…would love to see this production! Thank you!

  19. Amie March 8, 2012 at 11:44 pm #

    I would love to be able to splurge on a date night, but am tragically unemployed. This would be a dream!

    This show is so explosive and intimate. I embodied Danny- several years ago in a production of this show. It was one of the most provocative and powerful projects that I have ever worked on. I’m a student now- living on loans- with very little extra money to spend on the magic of theater. I would LOVE to see someone else’s artistic expression of the relationship between Roberta and Danny.

    how about this show for a first date?

  22. Amy March 13, 2012 at 11:04 pm #

    I am interested in theater as a tool for community healing. This sounds like that kind of show- raw emotions and poignant moments. I’d love to see the show.
