If you haven’t seen all of the wonderful press coverage around Fertile Ground yet, you definitely should check out the Fertile Ground Newsroom.
The Oregonian’s A&E cover story, written by Marty Hughley, said,
“(Fertile Ground) Launched in 2009 by the Portland Area Theatre Alliance, a volunteer-run service organization for local theater artists and organizations, the festival offers a veritable buffet of creative endeavor from across the city’s performing arts scene. Having branched out from plays and musicals to also include dance, comedy and various hybrids, this year’s 11-day event will feature 68 shows taking place in more than two dozen locations from the Pearl District to Tigard.”
Isn’t that amazing? 68 shows – ALL by local artists. That’s a lot of local talent. Excited yet?
Fertile Ground starts this Thursday with 11 productions across the city. If you haven’t picked your shows yet, visit the Calendar page.
