Artists Repertory Theatre is the longest-running professional theater company in Portland. Over their 34 years in operation, they’ve developed serious “rep” in all senses of the term: Repertory, regularly breaking world and regional premieres (six this season). Reputation, for high-quality work with fresh, politically resonant themes. And representation, thanks to a diverse cadre of resident artists and culturally eclectic season curation.

Pro tip: When you attend an event in the big red Artists Repertory Theatre building, don’t assume it’s put on by Artists Rep the company. Because the company shares their building with several other arts groups, collectively known as the “ArtsHub,” you may want to double-check your program to find out which company’s show you’re seeing. The good news is, with several companies sharing this city block-sized building, there’s always something going on!

Artists Rep’s two theater houses are each relatively small, just a few hundred seats, while their vision, quality, and scope of storytelling is far larger. Hence, Artists Rep’s delivery of theater is particularly intimate and direct. That’s no accident. Challenge, risk, and provocation are part of their rep.
