Claire Porter, recipient of a 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship, is on the move with her PORTABLES, a collection of funny and poignant character sketches that leave a lasting, laugh-out-loud impression on audiences across the U.S. and around the globe. "Porter, mistress of the short, sharp character portrait, is that rare breed - nimble witty comedian. A soloist with a neat collection of personas, Porter sketches them with the perfect physical gesture ... Porter is always delightful, often wickedly funny." Sally Sommer, The Village Voice
