"I laughed, I cried, I remembered, I dreamed, I longed, I saw the light... There shouldn’t be an empty seat in the house!" – Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, February 2018

After a sensational Portland début in February 2018, New York’s undisputed queen of the underground is BACK! Boom Arts presents a one-weekend-only return engagement by electric performance art icon Penny Arcade at Imago Theatre, featuring two encore performances of the show you loved last season, Longing Lasts Longer, plus two new works-in-progress. Portlanders called Longing Lasts Longer, Penny's internationally acclaimed critique of the post-gentrification landscape, “Fun… Thoughtful… Irreverent.” Come find out what the fuss was about—and bring your friends! Ready for more? Penny Arcade famously crafts her new work in front of an audience, so you can be part of this exciting process. In The Faghag and Her Friends in The Summer of Love, Penny invites us on a journey through 1960s gay bars in Provincetown and New York. In The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Penny brings her own history to bear on the #metoo movement, rape culture, and the normalization of self-censorship. Come try one, two, or three—you won't be disappointed.

Age recommendation: 16+
