Today marks 30,000th visit to this site, which now averages 120 visits per day -- largely, it seems, from within Portland’s theatre community. Excerpts run in Just Out. Profiles continue monthly as will, one hopes, open dialogue. With February light on openings, question: What theatre trends have you observed recently?
One I’ve noticed -- maybe not necessarily anything new -- is public involvement in the process (très Portland), not just the product. Witness: Hand2Mouth’s City of Gold; Sojourn’s The War Project; Quintessence murmurs of Hamlet-related collaborations; lots of work-in-progress readings from Stark Raving to Portland Theatre Works; and many others.
