A popular and critical hit on Broadway, this sharp-witted sequel to Ibsen's 1879 realist masterpiece begins with a knock at the door. Some 15 years prior, Nora walked out that same door, leaving behind her husband and children to pursue a life as a fiercely independent and successful author -- a sure shocker in the 19th century. Now she comes home to ask a favor of the man she abandoned. You don't need to have seen the original Ibsen to thoroughly enjoy this play at the Artists Repertory Theatre in Portland, dubbed "explosively funny" by the Hollywood Reporter and the recipient of eight Tony Award nominations in 2017.
A pioneering rock opera that became a global phenomenon, Jesus Christ Superstar retells the last seven days in the life of the social and political rebel Jesus of Nazareth through the eyes of his betrayer, Judas Iscariot.

Don't miss this righteous and explosive musical experience on the stage of the Brunish Theatre, courtesy of Portland's Stumptown Stages.
