Blissful couples, sweet singles, and happily marrieds are all welcome this February at Kiss & Tell, Portland Story Theater’s annual ode to St. Valentine. Whether you bring a date or enjoy the evening solo, this scintillating show is the perfect alternative to the typical Valentine’s dinner date. You’ll enjoy wine and chocolate, live jazz music, raffle prizes, and a photo booth along with the main event: stories of real love and romance woven together in a funny, sexy, and intimate evening of story theater.

Portland Story Theater co-founders Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard (real-life partners who have been blissfully married for 34 years) will perform with Vagabond Opera founder and accordion player extraordinaire, Eric Stern; plus Portland Story Theater favorites Amanda Starr, Warren McPherson, and Raahi Reddy. Appearing again as this year’s “Valentine Vixen,” selling raffle prizes and adding to the lively spirit, is the brilliant and charming Smitha Chadaga. Duddy and Howard promise a plethora of music, laughter, and true stories that celebrate love and romance at all stages of life – from the awkward teenage years, to dating as an adult, to the jumble of married life. Something for everyone!

“What we love about Kiss & Tell is the authenticity,” says Portland Story Theater Co-Founder Lawrence Howard. “Finding and keeping romance isn’t easy – there are moments of agony, ecstasy, and sometimes you can’t tell which is which! Our storytellers’ tales connect the audience to these universal experiences. It’s an evening of entertainment that’s funny, poignant, sexy, and most of all, true.”

No-host bar (Wine. Beer by Ninkasi). Wheelchair accessible. Free off street parking available.

Launched in 2004, Portland Story Theater is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to making the narrative arts an integral part of Portland’s rich cultural identity and is committed to bringing an authentic story and theater experience to inspire, challenge and expand a sense of community in Portland’s urban environment.

Listener Discretion Advised: Portland Story Theater’s stories may contain “colorful” language, sexual escapades of a questionable nature and numerous examples of extremely poor judgment, along with profound insights, deep revelations and moments of truth, triumph and transformation.
