This Week at Portland Center Stage

January 24 - february 1, 2015

Winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is complete with all the comic genius that only Christopher Durang can deliver. Vanya and his sister Sonia tolerate their mediocre middle-aged lives, until their movie-star sister Masha returns for a surprise visit with her boy-toy Spike that really shakes things up. Jan. 10 — Feb. 8 on the U.S. Bank Mainstage.

Threesome, A World Premiere by Yussef El Guindi. Leila and Rashid, Egyptian Americans with ties to Cairo, attempt to solve their relationship issues by inviting a relative stranger into their bedroom to engage in a threesome. What begins as a hilariously awkward evening soon becomes an experience fraught with secrets, raising issues of sexism, possession and independence. Jan 24  March 8 in the Ellyn Bye Studio.

Hi Joe,

Thank you so much for your interest in the Gerding Theater at the Armory! Portland Center Stage, the theater company that exclusively performs at the Armory, produces ten productions each season. Many of these productions are musicals or have musical aspects to them (for example, our current production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream features 488 sound cues and original music specifically created for the production).

Throughout the year, the Armory is sometimes rented out to other companies for conferences, recitals, ceremonies and musical performances.

We also often feature live music in our Armory cafe or in the lobby that is free and open to the public. For example, we often feature children’s choirs in the lobby, before PCS performances, throughout the holiday season. And this weekend we will be featuring six different musicians and bands at our 25th Anniversary Open House. More information about that event can be found here: http://www.pcs.org/blog/item/open-house/

Again, thanks for your interest! We hope to see you here soon.
