Aloha, Say the Pretty Girls by Naomi Iizuka is presented May 10 through June 8 by Theatre Vertigo at Theatre Theatre!, 3430 SE Belmont St.
This elasticated, dizzying and less linear journey follows a bunch of twenty-somethings in their quest for love and life. A woman moves to Alaska after being dumped by her boyfriend. A writer struggles to write a novel. A businessman misses his flight and ends up in Hawaii. An Incan mummy, a man that transmogrifies into a Komodo dragon, a dog that becomes a man, strangers, friends, lovers and acquaintances traveling the globe from Alaska to New York City and to Inner Borneo, exploring migration, evolution, interconnectivity, babies, hula dancers and ultimately, finding a tribe in a world gone haywire.
Performances are Thursday – Saturday at 8 pm, Monday performance June 3 at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 and are available through www.theatrevertigo.org or by calling 503.306.0870.
