About [PORTO]:

A woman walks into a bar. Her name is Porto. She’s a regular. She likes this bar: serious food, serious wine, serious bartender–a staple in a gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood (perhaps Bushwick?).

Disruption ensues: an upside-down romantic comedy unfolds inside and outside her head. Desires of all kinds are awakened with a ferocious thump. A nice smile is a nice smile, but can we enjoy the sausage once we know how it’s made?

Our [PORTO] Review

Sometimes a sausage is just a sausage and sometimes a sausage is more than the sum of its parts. In her quirky quasi-comedy, [PORTO], Kate Benson tries to have it both ways. This metaphysical work, which had a successful run at the Bushwick Starr last year, features sausages that are created and consumed, debated and adored. Of course, by sausage, Benson actually means the amalgam of lust, sex... Read more
