Clackamas Repertory Theatre
July 8, 2006; closes July 30, 2006
Another reason to get outta Dodge: surprisingly solid suburban summer-stock gives Portland theater-goers refreshing change of scenery. Recurring scene/costume changes created thumb-twiddling between-number lulls (perfect for cabaret cocktail chatter); direction/choreography were sorta milquetoast. Still, cast charisma and commitment to the material make the trip worthwhile. Keep an eye on Clackamas.
