Review: As Twisted As Your Victorian Knickers Can Get – “Twist Your Dickens” at Portland Center Stage at the Gerding Armory 0
Ah, the faith-neutral, politically sanitized Holiday season is upon us, with it’s traipsing pageant of similarly-themed treacle shows, often with over-worn themes and plots……
There’s a moment in the third act of Liminal’s production of Our Town where Emily suddenly turns to the Stage Manager, and asks him a question. I truly thought Jahnavi Caldwell-Green, the luminous actress playing Emily, had gone off script. “Are we still in the play? Does he know what he’s supposed to say?”
I was looking for Rodriguez to make his mark with his first chosen piece of the season. And now we have it with the opener to Artists’ Rep. 2013 season, Dan LeFranc’s The Big Meal. And my verdict thus far with Mr. Rodriguez’s effort?
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.

Well, it’s summertime, so you know what that means, kiddos… it’s time for Summer Camp. What’s that you say? You’re not a small child and you can’t take a week off from work to attend an educational and/or recreational summer camp? Well, fear not, you can still participate in a kind of camp
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!
You may be familiar with William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. You may have seen it performed in various stage productions or in any of several dozen movies. Heck, you may even be familiar with Christopher Marlowe’s Julius Caesar. If that isn’t the case, it is probable you know lines from the play, ranging from “Et Tu Brute?” to “Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me your ears.”
As young Lucy embarks upon her college science career, as well as her friendships with vivacious and crazy-in-the-fun-way roommate Claire (Summer Olsson) and budding romance with one of her early experimental subjects, Mark (Alex Kirby), we have the counter point of her mother’s struggles in the asylum between her ECT treatments.
