Rockin’ the suburbs

Portland Actors Conservatory is rockin’ the SW suburbs right now with a terrific production of SUBURBIA by Eric Bogosian.

Let me tell ya’ll what it’s like
Being male, middle class and white
It’s a bitch, if you don’t believe
Listen up to my new CD, sham on

I got shit running through my brain
So intense that I can’t explain
All alone in my white boy pain
Shake your booty while the band complains

I’m rockin’ the suburbs
Just like Quiet Riot did
I’m rockin’ the suburbs
Except that they were talented
-Ben Folds

50 words: SUBURBIA by Eric Bogosian at Portland Actors Conservatory

O to be young, drunk, and sexy. Loads to love in this gorgeously rendered tale of America’s youth decomposing behind the local mini mart. Terrific cast brings the manic energy and flash required. Sooze’s soaring liberated woman speech alone is worth the price of admission. Pure joy. And heavy sadness.

50 words: A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY by Tony Kushner at Portland Actors Conservatory

Every now and then, Tony Kushner gets out a Sam’s Club-sized bottle of dramatic castor oil and starts ladling. This is one of those times. The actual Berlin of 1932 must have been quite a place – fascinating, dangerous, revolutionary. The one here is filled with intellectual histrionics. Pretty tedious.
