"Crowns brings the musical experience back to the Playhouse stage in a big way. A female driven cast tells the story of Yolanda, a young woman transplanted from Brooklyn to South Carolina following a family tragedy. There she meets a circle of women who share with her the history, the importance, the power of the hat.Crowns is a not-to-be-missed celebration of song, dance, cultural history—and glamorous headwear."

*Thank you to Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) for a project grant which has provided funding for a six-month training for Interpreters of Color in performance interpreting. "As on the Stage" started in October 2018; interpreting "Crowns" is the final project undertaken by three of the participants, with the phenomenal Pam Cancel as their production mentor and adviser. The grant also provided four free tickets to this production for Deaf Community members, as well as an earlier production with workshop participants as interns.*

Jane is dropping out of college, out of life. She is stuck on her family’s farm in rural Ireland with a father who cannot find the words to articulate his fears, and a dog who intuitively grasps her state of mind but cannot reach her. Four Last Things is an emotionally charged journey through a young woman’s inner battles with depression as those who love her struggle to understand.


 Run time is approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

Note: The interpreters will be placed upstage in the performance space instead of in front. This is an intimate theatre with general seating (no assigned seats). Over 50% of the seats have excellent sightlines to the interpreters, as well as the play; another 25% has good sightlines. Priority seating in the seats with the best sightlines will be made available for Deaf and Hard of Hearing patrons.

"I laughed, I cried, I remembered, I dreamed, I longed, I saw the light... There shouldn’t be an empty seat in the house!" – Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, February 2018

After a sensational Portland d├ębut in February 2018, New York’s undisputed queen of the underground is BACK! Boom Arts presents a one-weekend-only return engagement by electric performance art icon Penny Arcade at Imago Theatre, featuring two encore performances of the show you loved last season, Longing Lasts Longer, plus two new works-in-progress. 

Portlanders called "Longing Lasts Longer," Penny's internationally acclaimed critique of the post-gentrification landscape, “Fun… Thoughtful… Irreverent.” Come find out what the fuss was about—and bring your friends! Ready for more? Penny Arcade famously crafts her new work in front of an audience, so you can be part of this exciting process. In "The Girl Who Knew Too Much," Penny brings her own history to bear on the #metoo movement, rape culture, and the normalization of self-censorship. Come try one, two, or three—you won't be disappointed.

Age recommendation: 16+
