One of Joe’s favorite elements of the rich, vibrant culture of Portland is the local theater scene, specifically The Portland Stage Company. Portland Stage is a team of professional theater artists, teachers and technicians who have been hand crafting quality theater in Maine since 1974 (the same year Joe opened the doors of his law practice). Beyond the productions that are at its core, Portland Stage supports a vast array of programs designed to educate, develop artists, and promote dialogue. If you’re interested in Portland Stage and want to learn more, you should consider attending the 2nd Annual Signature Event, a unique evening of food, wine, and a look at what happens behind the scenes at Portland Stage. This year’s event will be held on Monday, April 27th, at 6pm, and is sure to be a great time. Find more about Portland Stage here and more about the Signature Event here. Joe says “thank you” to this Portland institution, a treasure of our community, and hopes that all Portlanders consider attending a performance!
