Portland Story Theater’s Armchair Adventurer series returns with Nansen of the North.
Fridtjof Nansen, a Norwegian, was an originator, an outside-the-box thinker, a Renaissance man in every sense of the word. His story is a story for our times about a man who believed that there is only one way to go in life: forward. Nansen’s story captured the imagination of Lawrence Howard, creator of the Armchair Adventurer series, who, for the first time ever, is telling an epic tale of the Arctic. A captivating performer, Howard holds audiences spellbound and has been called “the Homer of Portland” and “the master of nonfiction on the stage.” Nansen of the North is the seventh installment of Lawrence Howard’s highly successful Armchair Adventurer series.
