BWW Reviews: Good Theater's UNDERWATER GUY Lifts Performance Art to the Poetic Photos BWW Reviews: Good Theater's UNDERWATER GUY Lifts Performance Art to the Poetic
(4/14/2014) - Portland's Good Theater closed its season with a highly original and poetic premiere of Stephen Underwood's multi-media performance piece, Underwater Guy. Underwood's play uses video, music, lights, scenery, and a single actor/narrator to recount the protagonist's lifelong obsession with diving, underwater exploration and photography. Part documentary, part dramatic monologue with movement, the rapid shifts in the modes of communication prove stimulating, sometimes surprising, but always engaging. For in Underwood's play, water is more than a habitat or a passion; it is a metaphor for his life's journey, and as such, the piece takes on a deeper significance and resonance.

Snowlion Repertory Company Opens THE ELEPHANT PIECE Tonight Photos Snowlion Repertory Company Opens THE ELEPHANT PIECE Tonight
(4/11/2014) - A tribal dream of harmony and community is abruptly shattered by a band of roving vaudevillian miscreants who raucously sweep in and stage a faux 'minstrel show' to gorge themselves on stories of violence and chaos, and thus the musical The Elephant Piece launches the audience on a journey into musical mayhem and absurdist spectacle that ultimately touches the heart and gives hope that our species might just survive its own destructive nature.
