April 18 @ Hipbone Studio – From the Capulets and Montagues to your co-workers who glare at each other every time they pass by, feelings of resentment and the holding of grudges is as old as history itself. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes they are serious and always they are important to the persons involved.
April 11 @ Alberta Abbey – What if you are 54 years old and you’ve never even been to Mile Zero? Why is a regimen of martinis and cheesecake the perfect diet? What does it mean to “live up to the light?” And what good could possibly come out of growing up in Roswell, New […]
April 17 @ Multnomah Art Center – Portland, OR – Story slams have broadened the participation, audience and awareness of storytelling in our here and now.

April 18 @ Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall – A most unpopular guest conductor has been murdered, and everyone in the audience is a suspect!

Posted by Tiffany Garner Stage readings are interesting things. They are a quick and easy way to get some theater into your life but they kind of leave you wanting more. I recently attended the stage reading of Cowboy Mouth at the charming CoHo Theater in NW Portland (2257 NW Raleigh St). Written in 1971 […]

JANE a theater company, in partnership with BrunDog Productions, is proud to announce that its lush, Broadway-style production of Stephen Sondheim's beloved musical "COMPANY" is back — and better than ever — with a new run Sept. 25 […]
I was bummed that I missed Chariots of Fire at Theater Theater. I heard great things about it, the plot sounds pretty funny and the cast…well, that cast is built to party. Plus, there is this tagline: “There will be smoke, cars, carnage, singing, a live rock band, talking nipples, sign language, and blood.” Last […]

Posted by Sasha Burchuk Veterans of the Imago Theatre Stage Two Original One-Acts The lights go down and the theatre is drowned in darkness. The air is heavy with the sounds of whales. For half a minute you loose your sense of place. Out of this murky underwater midnight comes Bryce Flint-Sommerville's new play, Breaching. […]
Posted by Saundra Sorenson A libertine, the tears of a clown, countless broken hymens… yes, it is Portland Opera's own staging of Rigoletto, and it is (to borrow a phrase overheard in Keller) superb. Like many self-respecting operas, Verdis's Rigoletto is political satire. But unlike, say, Mozart's Marriage of Figaro (which softened the edges of […]
This is the last weekend to the Illusion. Unfortunately, we slacked and didn't get someone out to cover this. However, I have heard nothing but positive reviews. This last weekend will most likely be packed, so you I suggest buying the tickets online/beforehand. Tonight is also Thursday discount night. From Public Playhouse: Public Playhouse closes […]
By Stephanie El-Hajj Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch a comedy YouTube channel sans the loading between videos, or buffering interruptions, or annoying popups? Better yet, streamedÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬¦. LIVE? Ah, I can see you're intrigued. 3rd Floor, a Portland sketch comedy group comprised of the hilarious Michael Fetters, Melik Malkasian, Ted […]

I saw “How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found” at Portland Center Stage last week. I am not a theater critic, but I do know entertainment–and this is highly entertaining. The set is fantastic as were the performances. You will enjoy this show. In addition, we are giving away a pair of tickets to […]

By Meagan Kate As a lover of improvisational comedy as well as twenty-somethings with filthy mouths and webisodes – I was pretty sure I was going to enjoy the season four opener of Fall of the House last Friday. I wasn't prepared, however, for how damn good the show would be. The improv series surrounds […]
The first episode of Fall of the House Season 4 starts tomorrow night. If you miss this weekend, there are three more episodes left in this season–BUT really–see them all. Somehow, I missed the first two seasons of this show. But after seeing one last season, I will miss no more. It is hilarious, and […]
Mortified is one of the best events this weekend in Portland. As you can see, it is loved by all the media in Portland except us. That ends this weekend when the Pipeline rolls on down to Someday and jumps on this praise wagon. We will not be DENIED from the praise list want to […]
Apollo opens tomorrow night at Portland Center stage. If the mixing of Nazis, the space-race, and the civil rights movement doesn't pique your interest (what's wrong with you?), how about this bit of strangeness for Saturday's performance: Normally, Portland Center Stage has a strict no cell phone in the theater policy. But we thought that […]
