CoHo Clown CoHort Presents BEETHOVEN & CHOPIN MEET THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

The CoHo Clown CoHort is cooking up the classical music/monster mash-up you never knew you needed, just in time for Fertile Ground 2020. Step into the lab to see what happens when you take Mary Shelley's classic horror novel Frankenstein, mix in elements from James Whale's dark cinematic interpretation along with Abbot & Costello's precise wackiness, throw in classical music legends Beethoven and Chopin (why not?), add a healthy pinch of Romanticism, and distill it all with the pure physical comedy of clowning. The experimental ensemble that brought you Philip's Glass Menagerie and Witch Hunt returns for more Fertile Ground mischief when Beethoven & Chopin Meet the Bride of Frankenstein, January 25 - February 2 at CoHo Theatre.
Sarah Delappe's THE WOLVES Kicks Off Season 12 At Portland Playhouse

From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves is a portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

KISS By Guillermo Calderón At Third Rail, Beginning March 15

In a Syrian city stricken by war, two couples meet for a quiet evening at home. In an intimate theatre in America, four actors attempt to make sense of an intriguing international work of art. Guillermo Calderon's riveting play-within-a-play blazes a trail through the twists and turns of cross-cultural understanding, challenging us to re-frame our notions of life, love, and what's lost in translation. Kiss is a genre-defying play filled with comedy and intrigue, with a riveting conclusion that raises questions about the ethics of theatre and the necessity of trying to imagine the unimaginable.

WITCH HUNT (featuring Sascha Blocker, Jeff Desautels, Amica Hunter, Emily Newton, and Maureen Porter), draws on Arthur Miller's The Crucible, along with the McCarthy hearings, the Federalist papers, the Puritan work ethic, and current events, to explore our cultural obsession with finger-pointing via modern clown performance.

BWW Reviews: MIDDLETOWN Is Home to All of Us at Third Rail

Middletown is a frustrating play to describe because I want to tell you everything that made me love it, and yet I don't want to tell you anything about it. I want you to go see it and experience it for yourself.
Third Rail Repertory Theatre Presents MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno

Third Rail opens our season with a play we have been dying to produce since it was the hit of Portland Center Stage's 2009 JAW Festival, MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno. The residents of Middletown lead lives that are probably not too different from ours. They wake up, go to work, say hello to their neighbors, fix the plumbing, seek advice on parenting, and try to live lives that are as rewarding as possible. It's all fairly ordinary. And yet...ordinary doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of this quirky, word-frenzied, refraction of OUR TOWN. MIDDLETOWN is a quizzical fable about life in all its sweetness and pain, joy and wonder, beginnings and endings.
