Blue Monkey Theater Co.

Plastic tween-park theater. Cheesy book, unimpressive score piped from lifeless compu-orchestra didn’t pare well with natural young talent. More uneven-tracing than coloring-outside-the-lines. What worked: cast’s lively complicity, most (Bryan Hunt, particularly) ready for bigger, bolder. Monkey has potential to be Portland’s missing link by focusing exclusively on teens, young adults.
