Portland Center Stage Presents "Man and Superman"
- 2003 is the 100th anniversary of one of the wittiest, funniest and fastest-paced romantic comedies in the English language -- G.B. Shaw's "Man and Superman" in which the philosopher mocks himself and we all laugh. It concerns one John Tanner, a highly eligible if confirmed bachelor and radical philosopher, and Ann Whitehead, a very beautiful, smart and single-minded young woman determined to make John her husband.
There are several points of interest about this production: several of the actors have worked with the director, Chris Coleman, in Atlanta; costume designer Sydney Roberts created the magnificent costumes for "The Devils," Chris' debut PCS production in Sept 2000, and her costumes for "Man and Superman" promise to be just as breathtaking; Klara Zieglerova who created the astounding set for "Outrage" returns with more dazzling stage wizardry; local radio celebrity and accomplished actor/director, Gray Eubank, makes his PCS debut; and Sarah Overman, who gave a remarkable performance in A.R.T.'s "The Shape of Things" and was quoted in the Oregonian's "Destination PDX: A Youth Culture Convergence," plays Violet.
The press release and list of events associated with the production is attached. Pre-production photos will be available on March 12. Please let me know if you'd like more information or want to arrange an interview.
