A band is a fragile entity, much like an unstable molecule—one electron goes rogue and suddenly it’s free-radical chaos. So when Lana, lead singer of fictional Portland band Ghost Dad, announces that she’s quitting, the other members react with varying degrees of devastation. Some audition new singers; others go on whiskey and weed benders. To make matters worse, the band’s big show at the Doug Fir is only two weeks away, the bass player has just quit her job and their shared home is slated for demolition to make way for a TriMet bridge. I’m filling you in because next weekend’s show—episode two of the four-part serial comedy—will be completely different. In the spirit of its past hit Fall of the House, Action/Adventure Theatre has created another episodic and largely improvised theatrical sitcom featuring a hilarious cast and special guest performances by some stellar local musicians. Will the band find a replacement singer in time for their gig? Will they find a new place to live? Will Lana get kicked in the vagina? Tune in next week for the unscripted musical hijinks.
