by Chris Arneson - May 06, 2015

The relationship-comedy genre is no stranger to the intimate Galleria. Neither is Caveman, which is making its fifth visit to the Mile High City. (more...)


BWW Reviews: ANNIE at Denver Center Review BWW Reviews: ANNIE at Denver Center
by Chris Arneson - May 04, 2015

The show is nothing flashy, and it doesn't try to be any more than it is. But if you already don't love Annie, this production won't change your mind. (more...)


BWW Reviews: SHE KILLS MONSTERS at Aurora Fox Review BWW Reviews: SHE KILLS MONSTERS at Aurora Fox
by Chris Arneson - April 29, 2015

BWW Reviews: 42ND STREET at Lakewood Cultural Center Review BWW Reviews: 42ND STREET at Lakewood Cultural Center
by colin roybal - April 28, 2015

Few shows capture the glamour and spectacle of the original Ziegfeld Follies as well as 42nd Street. The elaborate showgirl numbers and huge dancing choruses were the stuff of legend, and provided the inspiration for many gaudy Broadway musicals. While the show mocks some of the silliness of the original art, it pays homage to the core glitz and sparkle of the Ziegfeld productions, and keeps the audience tapping their toes throughout.

BWW Reviews: THE PILLOWMAN at The Bug Theatre Review BWW Reviews: THE PILLOWMAN at The Bug Theatre
by colin roybal - April 15, 2015

Razorblade-stuffed apples, body mutilation, and being buried alive: all the stuff of nightmares, right? Such are the elements of the twisted short stories that are a key element in The Pillowman. And how does one combine these gruesome elements into a story that is still palatable enough to sit through with rapt attention? That is the challenge that 11minutes Theatre Company has taken on. (more...)


BWW Reviews: A LATE SNOW at SET Review BWW Reviews: A LATE SNOW at SET
by Christi Esterle - April 11, 2015

Written just over forty years ago, Jane Chambers' A Late Snow shouldn't be controversial anymore. Yet here it is, 2015, and the church I drive past on the way to the store has a sign out front declaring, 'DON'T GIVE IN TO THE HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA,' so it's safe to say that SET's latest production will raise eyebrows in some circles of Colorado Springs.

by Chris Arneson - April 02, 2015

Motown the Musical, currently playing at the Buell Theatre, provides a bit of a history lesson for the record label, but mostly it feels like a really impressive tribute concert. (more...)

BWW Reviews: A Journey of 4000 MILES at the FAC Review BWW Reviews: A Journey of 4000 MILES at the FAC
by Christi Esterle - March 30, 2015

Her name was Lee Joseph. She passed away in 2013 at the age of 96, after what was in every sense of the term a full life. She hung around with the sort of people who got called before the HUAC, was married for a time to Arthur Herzog, Jr. (who co-wrote the Billie Holliday standard 'God Bless the Child'), and was an activist up through the later days of her life, when she marched in Occupy Wall Street protests. And she served as the basis for Vera, the punchy nonagenarian at the center of her granddaughter Amy Herzog's play 4000 Miles, now in its Colorado debut at the Fine Arts Center. (more...)


BWW Reviews: DRAG MACHINE at Garner Galleria Theater, DCPA Review BWW Reviews: DRAG MACHINE at Garner Galleria Theater, DCPA
by colin roybal - March 27, 2015

The Denver Center's Garner Galleria Theater is home to some very interesting cabaret-type shows. The most colorful, of late, has been Drag Machine, an original work that combines a traditional drag show with a narrative about the history of drag culture. (more...)

BWW Reviews: AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' at Vintage Theatre Review BWW Reviews: AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' at Vintage Theatre
by colin roybal - March 20, 2015

The music of jazz legend Thomas 'Fats' Waller is iconic. Born in the Harlem nightlife, his blues/jazz melodies are hauntingly beautiful and complex, and are the feature of Vintage Theatre's production of 'Ain't Misbehavin'. (more...)


BWW Reviews: A PUBLIC READING OF AN UNPRODUCED SCREENPLAY ABOUT THE DEATH OF WALT DISNEY with The Catamounts Review BWW Reviews: A PUBLIC READING OF AN UNPRODUCED SCREENPLAY ABOUT THE DEATH OF WALT DISNEY with The Catamounts
by Chris Arneson - March 18, 2015

I once worked with a girl who claimed she was a distant relative of Walt Disney. That's about the extent I knew of the tycoon's personal life, aside from his cheery commercial identity. That, and apparently his head is frozen somewhere. (more...)

by colin roybal - February 11, 2015
