Showgirls the Musical
This November, Stumptown becomes Humptown as A Touch Too Much Productions brings the Paul Verhoeven cult classic Showgirls to The Hollywood Theatre as a two-hour musical spectacular!
Based on the “so-bad it’s good” film, Showgirls the Musical made it’s stage debut in Chicago during the fall of 2012. Salivating fanatics of the film—many of whom helped fund the project via Kickstarter–helped spread the word resulting in a sell-out show two nights in a row. After a successful run in the Windy City, producer John-Ryan Griggs moves the show to Portland where it has been recast with local talent and amplified to better fit the Hollywood Theatre.
Having both coincidentally cheated death on the same day, estranged twins reunite with the possibility of mending their relationship. Starring Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Luke Wilson.

Super Duper Alice Cooper
Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr Jekyll whose rock n roll Mr Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher's son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each others' souls. The is the first ever 'doc opera' - a dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.

W. Kamau Bell
Socio-political comedian W. Kamau Bell has emerged as the post-modern voice of comedy. Kamau is best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-livedFX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York Timescalled Kamau “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.” AndSalon.com listed Kamau on their “Sexiest Men of 2012” list, calling the series “surreptitiously revolutionary in its effortless diversity and humanism.” Kamau has appeared on Comedy Central, Real Time with Bill Maher, Conan, WTF with Marc Maron, Henry Louis Gates Jr’s Many Rivers To Cross, MSNBC, The View, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and NPR, among others. The SF Weeklycalled Kamau “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle,” though he was more excited that they called him “handsome.”
