Mr. Scatter spent his Friday and Saturday nights at the theater — first at Portland Center Stage, for the opening of its version of Moliere‘s The Imaginary Invalid; then at the little Shoebox Theater, where Twilight Repertory Theatre had just opened its own version of The Doctor Despite Himself. Two utterly different productions, on vastly differing scales, with one link beyond Jean-Baptiste Poquelin (Moliere’s given name) himself: the medical profession gets the bum’s rush.
Mr. Scatter reviewed the two shows in this morning’s editions of The Oregonian. Read it on the How We Live cover, or online here at Oregon Live.
