We went to this theater to see "Nunsense". The play is silly (which it is supposed to be) and thus funny. It is nice to go to a production that doesn't take itself too seriously (have enough of that in real life). The seats we...More

We don't frequent Portland Stage very often, but the minute the ad came out for "All Night Strutt" I knew it was one not to be missed and I was right! This intimate theater was the perfect venue for the 2- hour show of fast-paced...More
