I have a timeless love. It is a love for theatre. This love is so strong that even when I’m in a strange city looking at potential hotels for a conference, I make...continued

I've never been to this theater again, but had in mind a large production, in alignment with "Aida." I found a small, community-style theater, which was okay. However, the production was very sparse - no sets other than a few props, very small...continued

Powerful cast. Starts out a bit slow, but definitely improves. Most powerful scene is the song before intermission. WOW! Intimacy of Brunish Theater makes every seat a good view.

Enjoyed this professional performance in very intimate small theater environment at the Brunish. Fantastic voices and execution with such emotion. Not a bad seat in the house!

I have now seen Stumptown Stages' presentation of this incredible musical twice. Elton John's music with Tim Rice's lyrics are all you'd expect. The story in a wonderful love story. Miss Coleman, who plays Aida, has a magnificent voice! In fact,...continued

Off-broadway style production: great performances, music, story. Minimal visuals (costumes, set). Engaging production. I was more pleased with it than I expected when I saw the size of the theatre. I'd recommend.

Performance was great. Singers had great voices. The venue has very narrow spaces between rows and only aisles on the sides so once you're in your seat, you're not getting up. And the room was too warm for my taste. So performance B++, venue C-.

The acting, the singing, the staging and the entire experience was all first rate! We loved it, as did our 10 year old grandson.

The event was great-It was a bit stressful at the box office because they did not have our name-The ticket taker was very good and said not to worry it would take a moment-She ended up handwriting the ticket-at the end of the day the show itself...continued

WOW! Aida was really subpar. It seemed like bad community theater. Doesn't translate well on such a small stage. Absolutely no chemistry between 2 main characters. Granted we left at intermission, but I can't imagine that it improved that much...continued

Fantastic voices that sound almost effortless. The 3 leads blended beautifully in their songs together. The set was minimalistic - almost necessarily so in such an intimate space - but gorgeous lighting design did a lovely job of helping to fill...continued

I got a ticket on the side at the back so view was limited. The seats are connected so every time the girl two seats over thrashed around in her chair (which was often) half the row shook. The sound quality was poor, music was too loud as were...continued
