Re: “Portland's (New) Funniest Person

For female performers, Purtle, Streed, Pruett and Stacey Hallal all made it to the Semifinals, where judges determined who advanced to the finals.

Oh, I expect readers to take my criticism seriously EVERY time.

Re: “Sex and Death Get Sketchy

Although the first act kicked up slower than perhaps expected, the second more than made up for any drooping heads (even for those with 11:30pm bedtimes). I would suggest staying for the entire show next time you expect readers to take your criticism seriously.

Re: “Tough Love

Yeah, I've always thought that the play itself was shit. Like it was written by a guy who'd seen too many other plays. That said, I bet this production of it is awesome.

Re: “Rothko Mania

Didn't Rothko hate Portland and couldn't wait to escape it?

Re: “Rothko Mania

EXCELLENT REVIEW ALISON! You were not rolled over by the magnitude of the subject.
My anticipation that through this play my appreciation and understanding of Rothko would be enriched dissapaited with Daniel Benzali's opening monologue. His booming, growling delivery may be fitting for a King Lear or Iago with a single intensity and cadance that remained as an actor delivering lines. Didactic statement stacted on didactic statement ad nauseum. All base rhythm, no melody. The staging: set, lights, blocking, action are very good and visually rewarding.

Re: “Rothko Mania

In reading the play, I was very conscious of two-hander-itis: characters bantering back and forth between one another before one says something profound enough to end a scene. It struck me as a very undramatic drama.

Re: “Day of the Docent

This is the best, funniest play I have seen in Portland in a very long time and I hope everyone goes to see it!

Re: “Madame Butterfly

Jenna, I suggest you try attending the opera again someday. There's a lot of great music, singing, and staging out there and there are reasons why Puccini's, Verdi's, Mozart's et al. works are still being performed after all this time.

Re: “2011: Onstage

Very nice! Did you see Cloud 9 at Vertigo? That show definitely deserved Best Something. It was fantastic.

Re: “Itching, Scratching, Discharge

I agree--especially concerning the tediousness of listening to a play satirizing an audience we're supposed to identify with...and don't.

Is it totally declasse to link to another review?
