Photo Flash: First Look at Leif Norby, Valerie Stevens and More in Artists Rep's AND SO IT GOES

Artists Rep began their 30th Anniversary season on September 4 with the World Premiere of Aaron Posner's And So It Goes…, directed by Posner. This quirky love letter to the human race flows from Kurt Vonnegut's first collection of short stories, Welcome to the Monkey House. The play runs through October 7 on the Alder Stage, 1516 SW Alder, Portland, OR 97205.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Can we ever protect ourselves from the idiocy of our hearts? Down a well-worn path, hand-in-hand, take a walk…through leaves and over bridges, breathe in the soul's seductive moments through three love stories set in mythologicAl Small-town America. It's 1962 New England when we join Tom, our tour guide, for a stroll with a host of hearts just like our own. Along the circuitous course of love we travel with our new friends hoping to catch a genuine glimpse of humankind's most elusive sentiment in the wonderfully flawed characters muddling along before us.

Playwright and Director Aaron Posner wrote the first version of And So It Goes…, under the title Who Am I This Time?, in the 1980s while at Philadelphia's Arden Theatre. He said back then adaptation was often done in a strictly narrative style, that it was just a matter of "taking short stories and doing them on stage."

And So It Goes… written by: Aaron Posner, adapted from stories by: Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., directed by: Aaron Posner, featuring: Tim True, Valerie Stevens, Andy Lee-Hillstrom, Kayla Lian, Alex Hurt, Leif Norby, Sarah Lucht.  Performance Dates: Sept. 4 – Oct. 7, Wednesday through Sunday at 7:30pm, Sunday at 2pm; Wednesday matinee - Sept. 26 at 11am; Opening Night - Friday, Sept. 7 at 7:30pm at the Artists Repertory Theatre - Alder Stage (16th and Alder St.).  Tickets are $25-$50; Students $20.  Box Office: 503.241.1278 or www.artistsrep.org
