On the Road with Allen Johnson Jan 11, 2007

Allen Johnson’s solo performance Another You is back on the road again. Premiering in last year's Northwest Artist Series here at OtB and the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s (PICA) Time Based Art Festival to much acclaim, Johnson’s show has gone global. Just returning from a three city tour in Germany in early December, Johnson, and crew (sound designer Justin Gerardy, lighting designer Michael White, & director Sean Ryan) met up for a few rehearsals in early January to gear up for Johnson’s upcoming performance at The Public Theater’s UNDER THE RADAR.

Good News: Forced Entertainment Jan 10, 2007

The good news: Yesterday, I reserved four tickets and a table at Joe's Pub in NYC to see the incomporable Kiki and Herb perform Sun., Jan 21st.   The bad news: I can't go to Vancouver this week to see the return of theater titans Forced Entertainment to the Northwest corner of North America at the Push Festival. They're performing QUIZOOLA! on January 10th and EXQUISITE PAIN on the 11-13th. Anyone that caught BLOODY MESS last season at OtB knows what a cool opportunity this is see one of the most innovative and entertaining theater companies in the world.

Magician Steve Cuiffo does Houdini escape Nov 12, 2006

The day before Major Bang opened at OtB... actor Steve Cuiffo was in NYC doing the Houdini straight jacket escape. You can watch it on You Tube here. Immediately after this, Steve left for the airport to fly here for the show. Pretty rad. Posted by Sara
