About
Portland Center Stage at The Armory is the largest theater company in Portland that produces fully professional theatrical production for the community, and is one of the 20 largest regional theater companies in the United States. There are two theaters located inside The Armory: the 590-seat U.S. Bank Main Stage and the 190-seat Ellyn Bye Studio. Established in 1988 as an offshoot of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the company became independent in 1994. An estimated 150,000 visitors attend The Armory annually to enjoy a mix of classical, contemporary and world premiere productions, along with the annual JAW: A Playwrights Festival, and a variety of high quality education and community programs. Eleven productions are offered each season, in addition to roughly 400 community events. The Armory was the first building on the National Register of Historic Places — and the first performing arts venue in the country — to achieve a LEED Platinum rating.

We were here for a play put on by Artist's Repertory Theatre while their building was being upgraded. We have also been here for a number of other plays.

We love going to The Armory! Comfortable seats, well mannered crowd, warm cookies for a $1.00 during intermission. Plays are always well done.

PCS does a terrific job with their plays and musicals. They do a great job with actor selection/presentation. The seats are more comfortable than the average theater - there is actually enough space for knees. The size is nice too as the audience is just the right size to not feel overwhelmed. Bravo!

It was a great play. The Center Stage is a great venue. We sat near the front, but I think there is not a bad seat in the house.

Portland Center Stage puts on a variety of plays each season, with consistent high quality of production, acting, and selection of material. It's a just right size hall, with accessible food and beverage before shows. If one had to pick a bone, it would be too few restrooms, especially for women. That's a bit of a surprise, as this venue was built relatively recently.

We went to see this play called Native Gardens at The Armory and could not have been more entertained by the actors and the dialogue of this play. This play was full of surprises and amusing characters along with some very thought provoking themes.

If you didn't see it, you missed a great play.
