The Hangover Show: The LightBox Ensemble, with special guests JoAnn Schinderle and Ali Reingold

Shake off the old year, like the hair of the dog and start fresh with live comedy at the LightBox Kulturhaus.  Local comic bombshells Ali Reingold, and Joann Schinderle are joining up this time with your favorite haus-team the LightBox Ensemble.  These ladies grace crowds nightly, and plan to bring a small taste of their comedic styling to our table, but that’s not all. Separately they will tell true stories, based off audience suggestions to inspire the troupe, and bring off the cuff hilarity to the stage for one night only. Two guests. Two halves. One great night. New Years Day.  Stand up and improv.

Polymath Art Theatre is an all new company in Portland started by veteran thespians Kate Belden and Katie Nichols. Drawing from a pool of multi-talented collaborators, Polymath Art Theatre aims to create socially engaged works of art. With the stated mission to “construct a season of insightful works pushing the creativity and passion of local creators to the very fringe of art and social- engagement, while bringing audiences the cathartic connections that they demand,” they’ll be storming onto the Portland theatre scene with an adaptation of Macbeth this October.

“Macbeth is usually seen as a play about evil. And what we want to do is look at that and ask ourselves: What evil persists today?” said Nichols in the fundraiser video for the project. Their new work, “Macbeth, A Dark Retelling,” is an uncomfortable look into the Macbeth story with a stark examination of domestic abuse and the culture that supports it.
