Artists Repertory Theatre offered an ambitious and stylistically diverse 2015/16 season of eight engaging plays. These selections emphasized Artists Rep’s role as Portland’s premiere mid-size regional theatre company by offering five critically acclaimed contemporary plays, alongside two magnificent mid-20th Century classics, and the world premiere production of the Broadway-scale musical, Cuba Libre.
“This season's line-up of bold and diverse plays presents us with characters facing and ultimately emerging through life’s obstacles,” said Dámaso Rodriguez, Artistic Director. “From challenges of immense or fantastical proportions to deep, internal hindrances they may not yet understand, the characters this season reveal the grace and beauty of accepting change through adaptation and perseverance.” Rodriguez continues, “I hope both veteran and new theatre-goers see titles that inspire them to discover what makes Artists Rep such a special place to experience theatre in Portland.”
Artists Rep’s productions feature the work of our Resident Artist Company, alongside guest artists from Portland’s world-class theatre community and beyond. Now comprised of 24 theatre practitioners, Artists Rep’s Resident Artists represent some of Portland’s finest talent, in a variety of theatrical disciplines.
