Milking the “Portland weird” industrial complex | THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF PORTLAND by Lauren Weedman at Portland Center Stage

Weedman is top notch, but show is unchanged from two years ago. Decision not to update material shows how desperate PCS is to get butts in seats by any means necessary at lowest cost. What was once new is now a machine. City’s largest theatre seriously lost. Time for a change.

Lauren Weedman ignites a double shot of Back Fence PDX next weekend

You could miss next weekend’s double shot installment of Portland’s leading live storytelling format show.

You could do that.

But then, to point out your folly, we’d have to rent a plane and fly back and forth over downtown trailing a banner: “DO YOU REALIZE LAUREN WEEDMAN WAS IN BOTH OF THOSE SHOWS?”

Not to mention other talented guests.

So save yourself the dreaded late realization (and us the cost of renting a plane).

And be there.

Consider this your chance to time travel back and make the right choice.

Friday at Mission Theater.

Saturday at Disjecta.

All details, all the time.

As LIVE as you need it to be.  Two times.
