Now Playing Onstage in Denver - Week of 10/14/2012 MISS SAIGON
AVALON THEATRE, THE
10/19-10/21/2012
A classic love story is brought up-to-date in one of the most stunning theatrical spectacles of all time. In MISS SAIGON, Alain Boublil andClaude-Michel Schonberg (the creators of LES MISÉRABLES), along with  Richard Maltby,Jr., bring Puccini's Madame Butterfly to the modern world in a moving testament to the human spirit and a scathing indictment of the tragedies of war. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. An international sensation, MISS SAIGON is an epic, daring pop opera that is universal in its emotional power even as it deals with controversial, contemporary issues. Its sung-through pop-inflected score gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong pop singers an opportunity to shine, in showstopping numbers like "I Still Believe," "Why God Why?" and "The American Dream." Meanwhile, its fluid cinematic structure gives directors and designers a field day. Raw and uncompromising, MISS SAIGON is an intensely personal story of the losses we suffer and the sacrifices we make in a world gone mad.

Now Playing Onstage in Denver - Week of 10/14/2012 CINDERELLA
Damon Runyon Repertory
10/12-10/21/2012
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits.Music by Rodgers, Richard; Book by Oscar Hammerstein II; Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein IIFor more information on Damon Runyon Repertory, click hereFor more information on Cinderella, click here

AVENUE Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account.

There's Brian the out-of-work comedian and his therapist fiancee Christmas Eve; Nicky the good-hearted slacker and his roommate Rod -- a Republican investment banker who seems to have some sort of secret; an Internet addict called Trekkie Monster; and a very cute kindergarten teaching assistant named Kate. And would you believe the building's superintendent is Gary Coleman?!? (Yes, that Gary Coleman.) Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
