Last year was known as "The Year of the Women". Well, this year I sought plays which showcase talented actors and the words of talented writers, called "Behind the Mirror". As always, all of the shows presented this year in our regular season are premieres in Portland.
Let's begin! I am thrilled to present Margie Boulé, back from her triumphant turn as Tallulah Bankhead in last season's Looped. This year, she brings Vogue's Editor-in-Chief Diana Vreeland to life in Full Gallop. Next up, an off-broadway hit about a young man hired to work for Barbra Streisand in Buyer & Cellar. The season continues with a musical I am excited to present: the one and only Dusty Springfield and her life story in Forever, Dusty. In March, it's the return of Wendy Westerwelle in Golda's Balcony, William Gibson's smash hit one-woman intriguing play about Golda Meir. Closing out the season is the Northwest premiere of Terry Teachout's complex look at Louis Armstrong in Satchmo at the Waldorf. ***JUST ADDED****Robert Schenkken's hot topic play BUILDING THE WALL. Robert's play deals with the AFTERMATH of building the wall-the year is 2019.
Back by popular demand is the beloved musical: Avenue Q, next spring.
And that's just on the Sanctuary stage! We're working hard to bring new talent and exciting projects to the Boardroom Cabaret Performance Space -- watch out for more of that!
Thank you for taking the time to ride with us. As I've always said, "without you, there would be no triangle"

Buyer & Cellar
Jonathan Tolins has concocted an irresistible one-man play from the most peculiar of fictitious premises - an underemployed Los Angeles actor goes to work in Barbra Streisand's Malibu California basement.
Forever Dusty tells the dramatic, revealing story of how a shy Irish Catholic school girl from West London transformed herself into the voice of blue eyed soul and the face of Swinging London.
From the pogroms of Russia to the halls of Knesset, the story of Golda Meir is the story of the state of Israel in the 20th Century, this one-woman tour de force promises to be thrilling, deeply moving, and an unforgettable night of theatre.
Satchmo at the Waldorf
