Where’s all the action and adventure these days in Portland theatre?
Quite often, it’s at Action/Adventure.
The small and scrappy SE theatre dynamo has been keeping it real for more than a few years now and is firmly ensconced in their new digs on SE Clinton (where they guarantee a train will pass during every show AND, in an emerging tradition, that performers will always improvise a line around it).
This year it’s take 2 on FALL OF THE BAND. What’s been happening with that legendary band on the Portland scene, Ghost Dad? You’ll have to show up and find out. There are five episodes to work out this year’s saga. The drama will no doubt be operatic in scale.
So be there.
And trainspot during the show.
You know you want to.
