the play’s the thing
:: Prospero and Miranda ::
tonight is the last performance of Portland Actors Ensemble’s 2011 production of The Tempest. if you’re in town, get over to Lovejoy Fountain and enjoy some Shakespeare! every time i see a play, i remember again just how much i enjoy theater. and this production uses very minimal sets and costumes to high and wonderful effect. productions of Much Ado About Nothing (or as Mabel calls it What To Do About Nothing) play nearly every weekend through the rest of the summer at different parks around the city.

while you’re in the neighborhood, have dinner at Hot Pot City. it’s sort of a theatrical take on dining. cooking as performance art. the man in the background sat next to us at dinner!
