Portland Center Stage’s latest one-man show is almost charming. Mike Schlitt is a compelling storyteller armed with a gift for impersonations and foreign accents.
Billed as “a wild and sexy new space musical—for those who happen to be groovy,” Wild Space A Go Go is a funky and loving tribute to cliché 1960s sci-fi adventure movies. The hair is big, the boots are high and the farce is on-point.
Unless you know a member of the cast or crew, there is no reason to see Theatre Vertigo’s production of God’s Ear. Though the premise is intriguing—a married couple mourning the death of their 10-year-old son in a surreal, semi-fantastical setting—the dialogue is annoying, the main characters are unlikable and the set is ugly.
