Blissful couples, sweet singles, and happily marrieds are all welcome this February at Kiss & Tell, Portland Story Theater’s annual ode to St. Valentine. Whether you bring a date or enjoy the evening solo, this scintillating show is the perfect alternative to the typical Valentine’s dinner date. You’ll enjoy wine and chocolate, live jazz music, raffle prizes, and a photo booth along with the main event: stories of real love and romance woven together in a funny, sexy, and intimate evening of story theater.
Portland Story Theater co-founders Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard (real-life partners who have been blissfully married for 34 years) will perform with Vagabond Opera founder and accordion player extraordinaire, Eric Stern; plus Portland Story Theater favorites Amanda Starr, Warren McPherson, and Raahi Reddy. Appearing again as this year’s “Valentine Vixen,” selling raffle prizes and adding to the lively spirit, is the brilliant and charming Smitha Chadaga. Duddy and Howard promise a plethora of music, laughter, and true stories that celebrate love and romance at all stages of life – from the awkward teenage years, to dating as an adult, to the jumble of married life. Something for everyone!
