Portland Theatre Scene is your best source for independent news, reviews and commentary on live theatre in Portland, Oregon.

As traditional media crater and small town booster blogs proliferate, it’s hard to find knowledgeable guidance on what to see.  When so much theatre coverage reads like press releases shilling for the industry, count on us to tell it like it really is.  Which at the moment isn’t so great.

No advertising, no conflicts of interest, no lengthy discussions about what shade of lipstick looks best on that pig.  This site is for the audience.  Your time and money is precious, and you deserve the best.

So come in, grab a seat and find some theatre worth seeing.


There will be drama

“They’re only words… unless they’re true.”

Speed-the-Plow, David Mamet (1988)

We hope you enjoy the show


There’s a lot to take in, so how to get started?
