After The Huntsmen received a staged reading last summer at Portland Center Stage’s JAW playwriting festival, Portland Playhouse snatched up the opportunity to give the play, written by New York City’s Quincy Long, its world premiere. It’s easy to see why: the intriguing and disturbing plot follows a teenage serial killer as he commits a string of murders to a disjointed doo-wop soundtrack.What we said: "The plot to Portland Playhouse’s new world premiere, The Huntsmen, sounds like a swinging suburban update of Sweeney Todd, but in the place of the barber, we have a teenager, and subbing for Sondheim’s operatic ensemble cast is an a cappella backing group. That’s right, a play about a teenage serial killer set to a doo-wop score. And man, it’s a gas." Read the full review of The Huntsmen.
