This is Portland theater at it's best.

After attending a few shows last year my husband and I purchased 2013-2014 season tickets and so far have been more then pleased with the plays presented. But even more so with the customer service when we have need to change our ticket dates.
- No hassles, no additional charges, no void/scan of old tickets to e-mail, pick up at will call, any date as long as there are tickets available and as close to our original seats as available.
Extra bonus with season tickets: Free parking in the theater's garage/parking lot which is a big bonus for that area of town. We have yet to go on a night there is a game at the park, but hoping the garage will help with that. The theater building itself is wonderfully modern with 2 bars, very nice lounge seating for before and during intermission. Reasonably priced drinks/snacks and you can bring your drinks into the theater to enjoy during the performance. So no gulping down your beer/wine when the lights blink. Some Friday nights they have karaoke from about 6-6:30 until just before show time. They also have rotating gallery exhibits that are somewhat related to the play themes in the upstairs lobby/lounge area.

WE have the season pass to all plays in the preview package. We get to see all the plays the day before they officially start. These are not stop and go performances, but fully staged productions. Twice we have been in the same row as the director, once with the production manager reviewing the show before premiere. Even got to make suggestions during intermission or at the end! You can change performances if necessary. Going to full regular scheduled productions will cost a little more. We have seen a number of world premieres and even two plays with Oscar winner William Hurt. Also, if you get the season package, you get a free parking voucher good for each show and a major discount! Plus, as you keep the subscription longer, you can improve your seating at no additional charge. We love where we are now at!

I have attended several programs at ART over many years. Generally they are quite good and well produced. The current show, Xmas Unplugged, is a sad exception. It is two, one-act plays and the first was so poor that I did not remain for the second. The actors were unable to speak loudly enough to be heard in the relatively small theatre. When they did speak it was to utter profanity that seemed to be purely for the sake of being profane. The play was very disappointing. If the tickets did not clearly state:"No Refunds," I would have asked for my money to be returned.

These guys are the Avis of Pacific Northwest theater--not the first, but trying harder. Inventive shows with strong repertory and visiting artists. Looking forward to the 2013-2014 season.

The play we say had good acoustics and a general good view of the stage. Seats were comfortable and the theatre is convienently located in downtown.
