Fall of the Band Season Two

ENID SPITZ
8 pm Thursdays-Sundays through Nov. 24., Sunday November 10 | $10-$14; season pass $45.
Action/Adventure Theatre
1050 SE Clinton St.
 
An onstage reincarnation of the dying TV sitcom, Action/Adventure Theater’s Fall of the Band is an entertaining theatrical alloy combining Friends and Portlandia. Season subscribers and one-off viewers alike can enjoy the lighthearted snafus of mohawked ex-junkie Heath and his band Ghost Dad as they pursue Doug Fir notoriety. It's like watching a ’90s sitcom brought to life and populated by your favorite wannabe rock stars while nursing a few beers at the Slammer. A few cast members even boast real-life musical careers, so Ghost Dad’s musical forays mercifully don't suck. With a set plot but no script, Fall of the Band’s veteran actors freely speckle Portland-centric inside jokes (and digs at Portland Playhouse) throughout, to the delight of the small space's audience. Scenes occasionally languish, but at a snappy 60 minutes, episodes are more peppy than ponderous. At episode two, a live-action recap of one character going rogue, unplanned gay embraces and exuberant audience interaction topped the most advanced technology, hi-def be damned. Beer is available for purchase; the only thing missing from a night of couch-potato indulgence is your own musty sofa.
