Cabaret in Broadway CABARET
Fuse Theatre Ensemble/The OUTwright Theatre Fest
5/18-6/2/2018
A government bent on silencing the media and cleansing its citizenry; lies and corruption dominate the headlines; nationalism slowly infects us and our neighbors start to disappear. Outside... life is disappointing. But in the Kit Kat Klub... life is BEAUTIFUL!! Come witness an event unlike any other in Portland as Fuse Theatre Ensemble and The OUTwright Theatre Festival present a site-specific rendering of queer icons John Kander and Fred Ebb’s most iconic musical, Cabaret. Step back in time to investigate the present as last century’s headlines become today’s tweets and we are reminded once again how society can creep slowly towards fascism without even realizing it. Gwendolyn Duffy stars as the iconic Sally Bowles, Ernie Lijoi as the Emcee, and Alec Lugo as Cliff Bradshaw under the musical direction of Matt Insley and the direction of Rusty Tennant with choreography by Kate Mura. There is no use permitting the Prophet of Doom to wipe every smile away. Life is a Cabaret, old chum. Come to the Cabaret!!

I AND YOU
Artists Repertory Theatre
5/20-6/17/2018
Two teens – a sick and snarky girl who hates poetry, and a sweet and sporty boy who just wants to get his class work project done – are thrust together to work on a school project about Walt Whitman’s poems. Like boxers in a ring, the mismatched pair spar their way through Whitman's epic Song of Myself into an uneasy friendship. With growing urgency and searing poignancy, I and You is a funny, tender and surprising journey about the strange beauty of human connectedness. Wednesdays-Sundays @ 7:30pm and Sunday Matinees @ 2:00pm
