★  The cast of Liminal vs. Our Town  ★


Portland's most experimental troupe takes on America's best-loved play. We'll talk & mess with Our Town director John Berendzen and the Wilder-than-thou cast & crew.

Resident Historian of Portland Opera

★  Bob Kingston  ★


Bob Kingston brings his passion and opera savvy to TLN. We'll get the lowdown on that not-for-the-weak masterpiece, Strauss's Salome. Beheadings! Salaciousness! Nasty persons!

★  Portland Sacred Harp Singers  ★


The dynamic American tradition of Sacred Harp singing reaches back to 1844. It's a force of nature of unaccompanied 4-part harmony — spirited, exuberant, and LOUD!

The world première of

The Untitled Late Now Radio Serial


Finally! The radio serial to end all radio serials. And no radio in sight. Electro-noise-foley monster Doug Theriault and gifted vocal performers Kyleen King and Juniana Lanning join Leo D for a lights-out aural adventure.

The return of



Din Din danger-chefs Chris Bailey & Riley Henderson are back for more tasty trouble. Last time they decapitated an egg. Who's next?!

★  Three For Silver  ★


Beloved TLN guesthouse band Three For Silver are back in modified form for more shiny live music. Always a lively ear/brain ride, expect some Djangoifique manouche action this time around!

★  The Portland Tarot  ★


We'll chat with Theresa Pridemore, designer of The Portland Tarot deck, and Our Town's own Rebecca Lowe will give mini-readings throughout the show. All in Din Din's prohibition-era New Orleans setting.

Deliciously live at Din Din


Delectable and unpretentious Din Din is Portland's own French-leaning bistro & supper club, notable for its conscientiously sourced, ultra-tasty fare. We're tickled tricolore to be doing our First Thursday Spectacle series here.

Can't afford tickets? We're artists; we get it. Come anyway:

• VOLUNTEER: We always need more hands (and brains). To repeat, we would love your help. Just get in touch.

• LIVE DANGEROUSLY: Come pay what you can 15 minutes before showtime. To even the odds, like our Facebook page and check it to see if we've sold out. (We'll try to keep that status accurate, but we can't possibly guarantee it.)
