If you’ve ever spent a winter in Oregon, you know that the rainy and gloomy weather can really take its toll. The dark mornings, wet socks, frizzy hair and perpetual rainfall are not exactly my idea of paradise. One of my favorite ways to combat the winter blues (or any kind of blues for that matter) is to go to the theatre.
I absolutely love this quote from Portland Center Stage:
Theater brings us together, to sit near one another, to hear stories, to lift our voices in song. Theater creates worlds like no others; its immediacy cannot be duplicated; its intensity cannot be matched. A playwright’s miraculous words, directed with insight and acted with passion, elicit laughter, sorrow, astonishment, enlightenment, inspiration. Suddenly, we are not alone.
This week, I’ve decided to list a few of the shows that are currently running (or about to open) in the Eugene area.
*If you happen to game for the two-hour commute from Eugene to Portland, here are two must-see shows playing in downtown Portland:
I hope these links inspire you to see a show. Do you know of any other hot theatre tickets that are currently available in the Eugene or Portland community? I’d love to hear about them!
