When you go to a play, what do you see? The lights, the props, the costumes? But have you ever thought about what it takes to make those few hours of theatrical beauty? We go behind-the-scenes at Artists Repertory Theatre to see what makes its new ArtsHub, an experiment in cohabitation with eight other theater-related nonprofits, tick.
Since 1984, Portland Arts & Lectures has been bringing the world’s most celebrated writers, artists, and thinkers to our community. As part of Literary Arts programming, this lecture series has grown from a humble basement gathering in the Portland Arts Museum to sold-out shows at the Arlene Schnitzer concert hall.
Oregon Art Beat is OPB's Emmy Award-winning local arts series, now in its 17th season. Art Beat profiles artists, musicians and artisans from around Oregon and the Northwest. Tune in Thursdays at 8 p.m.
Join us this week on Oregon Art Beat! Cuba Libre: An Oregon Art Beat Special, takes you through the evolution of a musical - from a dance workshop, to national auditions, through an intense seven-week rehearsal to the show's opening at Artist Repertory Theatre. This special, filmed over the span of a year, uncovers why it takes up to five years to develop a major musical.
Cuba Libre premiered in November 2015 with the three-time Grammy-nominated Afro-Caribbean band, Tiempo Libre and a company of 21 actors, dancers and musicians.
Audiences will have another opportunity to hear Tiempo Libre's Latin rhythms performed live at two venues this June:

We sometimes call ourselves the radio show that listens. Or the show that's talking about what the Northwest is talking about. Or maybe: the radio show with a Northwest heart, a global head and internet fingers. The fuller answer is that we're a daily show about politics and global issues, music and sports, books and the environment — anything and everything that can sustain an hour of live, unscripted conversation. And, crucially, we're a web site that feeds into — and off of — that radio conversation.
