I’ll be reading from PEOPLE LIKE YOU during HAPPY HOUR at Portland Center Stage before their current show GREAT EXPECTATIONS, along with the interminably hilarious COURTENAY HAMEISTER doing, of course, something brilliant and hilarious.
Here’s how it works:
Show up at 6:30 FOR FREE, hang out upstairs, listen to the readings, have a FREE DRINK, and some FREE FOOD. If you would like to stay for the show, you can get discounted tickets super cheap. Or, after imbibing and ingesting on the house, you can go next door to Powell’s and buy books, or wander around the Pearl, or see a movie across the street at Living Room Theaters… whatever.
Is that the craziest, best deal you’ve ever heard of? Me too!
Portland Center Stage describes it like this:
Social Hours are events that connect the community with local artists throughout the season for casual happy hours at Portland Center Stage prior to a performance. Our hosting artists will present a brief performance or program for about 10 minutes during the Social Hour, but mostly it’s a good excuse to socialize prior to a show!
