Kelly got us tickets for Patton Oswalt for my brithday. Today we go. Thank Kelly! (Also, I’m just now noticing that service charge! Preposterous!)
I greatly enjoy the architecture of the Portland Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA) and the Newmark Theater is my favorite among the complex’s theaters. Its small and intimate and has simulated boxes as well as stars on the ceiling.
We were closer than the first row! We were actually sitting in rows of removable chairs where the orchestra pit usually is. We were very close! This is a non-zoomed picture.
And here’s a zoomed one. Patton Oswalt is telling us he’s relieved to be in Portland.
I was quite transfixed by his belt buckle.
This was a great show. He chatted about all manner of topics, my favorite of which was his opining on the day where he had to visit the Post Office and the D.M.V. on the same day. He told us it wasn’t the employees who were the problem, they were on it. It was the customers who were all crazy. Patton Oswalt feels my customer service pain!
