There must be something in the water in Portland, my gosh. The amount of stellar shows that keep coming out of Oregon is stunning and most welcome.

Our two characters, servants in a manor home, attempt to clean but do pretty much anything but. Their imaginations take them on many a journey — lucky for us, we're along for the ride. Their physical comedy and acrobatics had many in the audience gasping.

These two are very good and make it all look effortless. I wish I'd seen them last year in their Beau & Aero.

This is a gift of a bygone time, a homage to the silent film era.

And it's family friendly, too: bring the kids.
