The Sanctuary is a good place to see a play. It is the chapel of what was the big Salvation Army building at 18th and Sandy. The seating is on church pews. This is an opportunity to see this rarely mounted Tony winner that is also as timely now as when the book first came out almost forty years ago.
Skirts were short in the Twenties. In this production they are even shorter, and in some cases nonexistent. There are very few costume changes. This is not about costumes. Most of the scenery is one chair and a couple of ladders. This is not about scenery. Most of the story is carried by the songs. It is not about dialogue; although there is some. What it is about is dancing and singing….and SEX!

triangle productions! is excited to open its 24th season with the Oregon premiere of this seven-time Tony Award winning musical based on Manuel Puig’s novel of the same name, KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN. Book by Terrance McNally, Music by John Kander and Fred Ebb (Cabaret and Chicago).
Richard Collier, failed playwright, with a brain tumor and only months, or maybe weeks to live, falls in love with the woman in the picture. He also also travels back in time to meet her. That’s fantasy. More importantly, it’s romance. Somewhere in Time at the Portland Center Stage is a musical, where romance and fantasy are as welcome as singing and dancing.
THE ADDAMS FAMILY features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother.
Rock of Ages might be silly, it might be frivolous and it might even be the campiest, silliest, and cheesiest (yes, all three) Broadway production of all time – it’s also the most fun, hands down. I’d venture to say that if you have a pulse you’d like it.
