Appearing again as this year’s “Valentine Vixen,” selling raffle prizes and adding to the lively spirit, is the brilliant and charming Smitha Chadaga. Duddy and Howard promise a plethora of music, laughter, and true stories that celebrate love and romance at all stages of life – from the awkward teenage years, to dating as an adult, to the jumble of married life. Something for everyone!

“What we love about Kiss & Tell is the authenticity,” says Portland Story Theater Co-Founder Lawrence Howard. “Finding and keeping romance isn’t easy – there are moments of agony, ecstasy, and sometimes you can’t tell which is which! Our storytellers’ tales connect the audience to these universal experiences. It’s an evening of entertainment that’s funny, poignant, sexy, and most of all, true.”
