Providence Phoenix to close; Portland still in flight


On October 8, our sister publication the Providence Phoenix announced that it would close, ending a 36-year run for the city’s only alt-weekly. What that means for our paper is a good and appropriate question.

Cutting higher education

How corporatization is transforming the University of Southern Maine
The USM administration swears up and down that they’re in crisis, that they’re facing a $16 million deficit in Portland and an even greater deficit systemwide. Yet many within their ranks—many of them economists, public policy researchers, and sociology professors—are challenging the numbers, insisting they don’t add up. So we, the public, have to choose which side to believe.

Traumatic irony

Michael Kimball's Ghosts of Ocean House
A creaky old oceanfront Victorian. Three adult siblings who don’t like each other, plus a couple of spouses. A codicil to their father’s will that requires them to spend an excruciating week together in the house. And, of course, various ghosts.

Under the weather

Queersay
The needs of LGBTQ individuals differ greatly. Here's a temperature check of healthcare as experienced by local queers to explore standards of LGBTQ competency, specifically in heterosexual providers. The criteria at the root of each story make a basic rubric for respect.

Overextended family

Mad Horse's stirring A View from the Bridge
“I’m inclined to notice the ruins in things,” ponders Alfieri (Brent Askari). He’s recalling the downfall of a longshoreman who won’t give up a misplaced, misshapen love, a story that receives a superbly harrowing production at Mad Horse, under the direction of Christopher Price.

Something's gotta fall

Love, tension, masculinity in The Rainmaker 
While it hasn’t rained on the Curry family’s 1920’s-era ranch in far too long, the drought is more than literal in The Rainmaker .

Rodgers, over and out

The piano-rock that's in the headlines
It’s been a long time since standing up and pounding on a piano and belting out lyrics has been much of a thing.

Raise a glass to Prohibition's influence

Portland cocktail bars embrace historic recipes
The phrase “Prohibition-era cocktails” may sound like an oxymoron, but much of what we see in today’s craft cocktail revival is actually borne of drinking during Prohibition.

Amy Stacey Curtis makes it Matter in rural Maine
It’s a long, ruminative drive from Portland to Parsonsfield, the site of a bizarre, unclassifiable, and oddly intimate sort of production by the renowned Maine artist Amy Stacey Curtis.

What's the plan?

Is Portland’s development push a good thing for its citizens?
Dating back to its founding, Portland’s economic model was one that relied on finding ways to extract value from perishable resources—trees; the ocean; and later, manufacturing—and direct that value elsewhere. Today, Portland’s prized asset is lifestyle and real estate.
