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.
Back in town this weekend: Lauren Weedman
Two nights of new-fashioned storytelling at Back Fence PDX.
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.
Sharp, funny, unstoppable, and physically hysterical. Lauren Weedman is all that and more. During this top speed 90 minute monologue, a parade of Portland voices and characters passes through the ever wandering frame. While she may not be a “blender”, Weedman is an acute social observer and has our number.
Here it comes.
Opening week for Lauren Weedman at Portland Center Stage.
And the tickets are gone.
A lot of weeks are going to look like this one.
It’s no ordinary Tuesday.
Because tonight is the first preview of Lauren Weedman’s new show, THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF PORTLAND at Portland Center Stage.
Somewhere in the wikipedia article for “live performance”, there’s a photo of Weedman.
Get ready for two months of this.
You were warned.
But do you have tickets yet?
Because while you’re sitting there surfing the web, Lauren Weedman’s show at Portland Center Stage is selling out.
Red tide’s a rollin’…
We’ll keep you updated every Friday.
According to our sources, Lauren Weedman is in town and getting ready to blow the roof of the Armory with her show THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF PORTLAND, directed by Rose Riordan.
T-18 days to the first preview.
Here’s a few shots from rehearsals in the Ellen Bye Studio. Even in an empty room with no audience, this woman is 100% amped up and funny.
As a public service between now and mid June, we will periodically let you know how close you are to missing out on Lauren Weedman’s upcoming show at Portland Center Stage, THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF PORTLAND.
Enter: Weedman watch
As time moves on, watch the green turn to red. Wheeeeeeeee!
Those are tickets selling out.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
It’s early days yet. But wait until she hits the stage.
Then POOF! go your tix.
