Coho Productions is going solo this summer with four one-person shows. Dmae Roberts features two of the shows and performers, Stacey Hallal in the comedic Irregardless and Elizabeth Huffman in the moving You Belong To Me.

Stacey Hallal (featured left photo) in Irregardless combines stand up, songs and storytelling exploring topics like marriage, robots, grammar, sex and tatoos. Her presentation and perspective are fresh, but what makes her funniest is that she hits a common chord that resonates with the audience not only in the moment, but also well beyond the end of the show.

Oregonians speak out about the arts

Mon, 03/23/2009

Every year, Oregon artists, institutions, and organizations receive millions of dollars in funding from regional, state and federal government-sponsored agencies. For example, this past fiscal year the Regional Arts and Culture Council gave out over two million dollars in grants and support. Not a lot of money, but maybe enough to get some artists and organizations through what will certainly be a difficult year.

But what are these artists and organizations giving back to the community and why do we continue to fund the arts when there are so many other places that money could go? With these questions in mind, Frank Reynolds asked people around downtown Portland about state funding for the arts and how culture factors into their lives in tough economic times.
