The first time I saw a show at Portland Story Theater, I laughed out loud and cried like a child. I've been doing theater for years and hadn't seen anything so real and truthful for a long time.

Since that first day, I've seen perhaps a dozen performances by PST, and have had the immeasurable privilege of collaborating with Lynn & Lawrence on a show of my own. Their guidance and advice have been instrumental in helping me grow as an artist and prepare for this new thing that I am doing.

Portland Story Theater provides an amazing evening of heartfelt personal stories. Each amateur teller shares their experience, feelings and wisdom. The stories are wide ranging and move you to laugh, cry and cheer all in the space of a few minutes. You'll never think of storytelling in the same way once you've seen Portland Story Theater.
