What do baristas, strip clubs, the Pearl, and airport pick ups have in common? Let Lauren Weedman entertain you with the interesting characters and places she's seen in Portland - those things which "Keep Portland Weird." This is comedy with a lot of improv, some video, and more. Did I say this is a comedy? You will laugh. And laugh some more.
Hurry and buy your tickets. There are a few seats left in the interpreted section only (all other seats are sold out for that night). Follow the directions above to order your tickets online.
"Portland is garnering lots of attention lately—for our leadership in sustainability; for our food scene; for being, well, weird. And now we’ve caught the attention of Lauren Weedman, actor/writer of . In the few months she spent here in the spring of 2011, Lauren’s imagination was captured by all things Portland.
And so we’ve asked her to write a play. About Portland. How will this former faux-spondent treat us? What does Portland look like through Weedman’s unique lens? Are we brave enough to find out?
This world premiere play was commissioned by the “Innovative Minds” program at Perkins Coie."
Thank you, Justin Coleman, for the video!
