The goal of The BRG is simple and can be easily read at the top of each page: connecting people who live, work or shop in and around Beaverton with the abundant local resources available. So whether you’re shopping and want to try out a new store or a new store that wants to reach out to new customers, The BRG is equally useful and happy to help play the role of match-maker. We also know a lot about what’s going on in the county and for those who are looking to get “Out & Aboutâ€?, we have the county’s event calendar, an exclusive with the Beaverton Farmers market, an extensive regional theatre line up, a full list of library programs as well as other announcements to help you connect to whatever interests you.

THE STORY: The play takes place in 1948, in a suite at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Boston. It is the Opening Night of a freshfaced playwright’s brilliant new work. The backers have socked $300k into the production and have high hopes for the great success the play promises. When the curtain falls, it seems like this is going to be a disastrous flop. The Director, Backers, Writer, Leading Lady, and her mom all begin to viciously turn on one another. However, the next morning, it appears the play was actually very well-received. Now, they need to seek out the playwright who has decided to return home, leaving behind all his hopes and dreams of becoming successful. He is reluctantly persuaded to return at the last moment, but turns the tables on all those who were so eager to dismiss him as a failure. This is a brilliant “backstage comedy” about the sunny side, and the dark unforgiving side of showbiz.
