V veni, vidi, vici – SNOW ANGEL by Mx Justin Vivian Bond at Star Theater

V came to town on December 19 courtesy of PICA and lit up an otherwise cold and rainy Portland night at the Star Theater.

The air was thick with songs, jagged bon mots, and perfume.

Opener (in Mx drawl): “Now, you know I had to name this show a long time ago for marketing purposes. And I didn’t know which way the election would go and how things would be now. But then I realized it would be fine either way because if Obama won, you know, people would be happy and the angel thing would work. And if Romney won snow angel would still be appropriate because it’s the exact same shape you would make if you were being raped.”
