…that you’d best get inside it.
At about 250 seats a show and only 22 performances, a mere 5500 Portlanders (max) will get a chance to see the upcoming sardines-a-palooza (aka NOISES OFF) at Third Rail.
That’s really not very many. That’s the number of people waiting in line for the jacks at a Timbers game. Or backed up in traffic daily at 5pm on the Fremont Parking Lot. I mean Bridge.
If this show catches fire the way it should, there are going to be quite a few UNHAPPY campers who did not get their tickets ahead of time. Like they were told to. Repeatedly.
But surely you, dear reader (being all in the know – and all), won’t miss this rare chance to see Portland’s boldest and best big theatre company taking a run at the Godzilla of all British farces.
PLUS it’s dead center in the end of year holiday slot! What else are you waiting for?! Free beer? A personal invitation? A vigorous acting lesson and massage from Lloyd Dallas (while he simultaneously posts on all social media known to humankind)?
Miss this farce-pocalypse – and you’d better be prepared to endure lengthy questioning and electronic surveillance c/o the NSA, as they seek to understand the inner workings (or not) of your brain. And believe me, those people do NOT have a light touch.
It all starts Friday at the P5PCPA Arts Centre Performance Complex.
Which is right next to the Schnitzer on SW Broadway.
First snow falls in Washington’s Methow Valley.
But please DO carry on.
As Black Friday descends, we urge you to freak out and panic buy like a kid at a Secaucus mall.
But not TV’s or clothes or computers.
No, no. Not those Made in China tchotchkes.
Instead, get something really valuable that will last a lifetime.
And it’s 100% Made in America (aside from the script).
Namely, a ticket to one of the funniest plays ever staged.
It’s T-7 on the farce clock and counting down…
There are only a few nights left for Liminal’s OUR TOWN. The show closes Sunday.
Word on this beautiful and clear production seems to have spread as tonight was sold out.
“Little cooler than what it was.”
Meanwhile, cross town at the Portland Publick Performance Centres for the Performing Art + 5 and Theatre Productions and Musicality Endeavors (long name, we know, but so much info to pack in), a certain lil’ show is rumbling toward the light.
You have but a week to get your shizzle together and secure a ticket.
Bring your sardines…
