Claudia Schmidt in Concert

Friday, April 26, 7:00pm, Clinton Street Theater

Advance discount tickets $15 from or $20 at the door.
Claudia Schmidt has been perfecting her craft of performing for almost four decades.  It is a quirky and wonderful hodge-podge (her word!) of music, poetry, story, laughter, drama, and celebrating the moment.  Work in clubs, theaters, festivals, TV, radio has added depth and dimension, and since she has always included her original work along with very personal versions of the work of others, what you get is a unique look at the world from someone who says what she sees with clarity, humor, and wonder.  The San Francisco Bay Guardian said: Schmidt's shows are a lot like falling in love.  You never know what's going to happen next, chances are it's going to be wonderful, every moment burned into your memory and you know you'll never be the same again." More succinctly, Garrison Keillor said "When Claudia sings a song, it stays sung."

A landmark of Portland cinema history, The Clinton Street Theater is one of the oldest operating movie houses in the United States. Famous for its long-standing exhibition of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, the theater is currently a magnet for independent, art, foreign and classic films, and the home for non-profit fundraisers and community events. In April of 2012, the Clinton Street Theater was purchased by Roger and Lani Jo Leigh. A revolving cast of energetic and engaged volunteers and film freaks help support the theater's continued existence.
