Dmae talks with director Rose Riordan about the world premiere play Lauren Weedman Doesn’t Live Here Anymore at Portland Center Stage at the Armory through April 30th. Always personal and funny, Weedman turns life’s pain into memorable stories and this time songs as she takes on the alter ego of a country singer named Tami Lisa. Hear her previous Stage & Studio interview about her book Miss Fortune. We’ll also talk with Wayne Harrel of Northwest Theatre Workshop’s world premiere plays Jaffa Gate  and Noisemaker by Ciji Guerin.

Synopsis: What do you do when your heart is broken? When your world seems to be falling apart, one frustration at a time. Grab a guitar, hitch up your jeans, and sing about it! From the star of HBO’s Looking and The People’s Republic of Portland at The Armory, Lauren Weedman (and her alter ego Tami Lisa) are ready to take you on a journey of heartbreak, laughter and fresh starts. Lauren will be joined by a band of fine musicians; and we’re pretty sure her hair will be bigger than ever. Run Time: Approximately 80 minutes; no intermission. Note: Recommended for ages 17 and up.
