Portland Center Stage presents a new adaptation of Strindberg's Miss Julie, written and directed by artistic director Elizabeth Huddle , running Jan. 4-Feb. 1.
Huddle's adaptation takes place in the same time period as the original, but is transferred to the American South, just after the Civil War. Miss Julie, the daughter of a plantation owner, spends one risky and flirtatious evening with her family's black valet, Jean, while the Christie, cook watches on.
If you really like the arts, Portland Center Stage is offering a joint package with Portland Art Museum. Package prices for groups of 15 or more enable patrons to view a live show and an exhibit for as little as $26, through April.
Now showing at the museum is "Andrew Wyeth: The Helga Pictures" and "In the American Grain: Dove, Hartley, Marin, O'Keeffe and Stieglitz," through Jan. 12. Other shows include "David Kennedy Photographs," "Discovering Ellis Ruley" and "Munch and Women: Image and Myth." For a schedule and package prices, call Una Loughran at (503) 796-6510.
