NEW - Broadway-Bound Musical World Premiere - "Somewhere in Time"

Portland Center Stage is proud to present a brand new world class musical directed by Scott Schwartz, premiering in Portland during Rose Festival just before its New York City debut. An intriguing love story based on the Christopher Reeve movie of the same name, Somewhere in Time will capture the hearts of the audience as the characters take a journey of a lifetime to discover a powerful but perhaps impossible love. Group seats are available for $30 per person (regular price $50-$70) for the following performances: Friday, June 7, 2013 (at 7:30 p.m.), Saturday, June 8, 2013 (at 7:30 p.m.), Sunday, June 9, 2013 (at 2:00 p.m.). [Note: Full show run is May 28 through June 30, 2013.]
