Another performance, another glowing review!! Portland Center Stage is quickly becoming one of my favorite spots. The Armory Theater in the super-chic Pearl District is within blocks of some of my favorite restaurants and houses a team of passionate artists who deliver amazing productions throughout the year. For Twist Your Dickens, my friend Mary Ellen and I had dinner at Oven and Shaker before the show. It was the perfect way to catch up, enjoy a night on the town and get into the holiday spirit. The humorous holiday spirit, I should say.
Twist Your Dickens is a spin on the Charles Dickens' classic with multiple pop-culture references and a mash up of holiday staples. The part-scripted, part-improv production involves plenty of audience participation, a few songs and plenty of jokes.
I would recommend checking this out for a girl's night out or a date with your special someone. I would not advise bringing kids to this. The language is punchy and some of the references are very mature.
Twist Your Dickens will be performed at The Armory Theater through December 24th 2014!
