Liminal Performance Group, long a bastion of experimental theatrical work in Portland, is currently running one of the most frequently produced shows in American theater: Our Town, the chestnuttiest chestnut of them all. Mileage will vary depending on your tolerance for Thornton Wilder's classic, but Liminal's production has a lot going for it. Technically, it's excellent: the sound design is ambitious and perfectly integrated; video projection is used in thoughtful ways that serve the story and add depth to the otherwise bare-bones set. And the tone is challenging, witty, and dark—there's mercifully little of the hazy nostalgia that Wilder's endlessly over-produced script is often drenched in. ALISON HALLETT
