Doo wop and teen murder make an odd but compelling pairing in Portland Playhouse's new show. When The Huntsmen begins, young Devon (Dean Linnard) is having trouble sleeping, so he skulks into his father's office for a reluctant heart-to-heart. What begins as an innocent chat soon takes a dark turn, as Devon haltingly explains that he's a member of a secret club called the Huntsmen, and that he maybe raped a girl. And maybe killed her. And then he murders his dad. Devon's murderous tendencies are soundtracked by doo woo numbers, capably rendered by Linnard and the uniformly excellent cast. HALLETT
