This auditorium was upgraded some ten or fifteen years, ago. Every seat allows great viewing and perfect sound quality. The Portland Ballet Company and The Choral Arts Society just put on The Armed Man, A Mass for Peace. The choreography, by Nell Shipman, dancing, and music were superb. The audience could not stay in their seats at the end of this moving and beautiful performance. I've seen other performances at the Merrill: Ira Glass, La Boheme, Lucinda Williams, Cirque de Soleil. If you are in Portland, check out The Merrill's offerings. You'll be glad you did.
