BWW Reviews: FLOYD AND CLEA UNDER THE WESTERN SKY at the Fine Arts Center Review BWW Reviews: FLOYD AND CLEA UNDER THE WESTERN SKY at the Fine Arts Center
by Christi Esterle - June 16, 2014

If you missed Once when it was at the Denver Center last month, then Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky is probably an acceptable substitute. Like the Tony-winning musical, Floyd and Clea centers around two characters who form a bond through music and end up transforming each other's lives. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Black Box Brings THE BUTLER DID IT! Home to Colorado Springs Review BWW Reviews: Black Box Brings THE BUTLER DID IT! Home to Colorado Springs
by Christi Esterle - June 09, 2014

The history of 'the butler did it' as a mystery plot device is filled with old-fashioned classism. To proponents of the trope, it was a great twist; who would suspect the servant, a person who ideally is supposed to be invisible? Others, such as S.S. Van Dine, considered it too easy a solution-because of course the lower tiers of the social order would be the logical place for such a culprit. In any case, the notion was already a hoary old cliche by the 1930s, when Todd Wallinger's The Butler Did It! is set-so much so that it's practically the first thing brought up between butler Jenkins and maid Sarah when discussing the popular mystery writer about to descend upon their household.

BWW Reviews: FAC's FOREVER PLAID Is Nostalgic in the Best Way Review BWW Reviews: FAC's FOREVER PLAID Is Nostalgic in the Best Way
by Christi Esterle - May 11, 2014

Forever Plaid has what is probably my favorite premise for a revue show: on February 9th, 1964, a close-harmony quartet called Forever Plaid is on their way to their first big show when their car crashes with a bus and all four members are killed. (The bus was transporting a group of schoolgirls to see the Beatles perform on Ed Sullivan, a symbol of the shifting music paradigm that was already rendering the Plaids' sound obsolete.) Now, years later, the alignment of the planets and other vague metaphysical forces have arranged for the group to finish their earthly business and perform their first-and last-concert before heading to the great beyond.

BWW Reviews: Mighty Aphrodite: Theatreworks' VENUS IN FUR Review BWW Reviews: Mighty Aphrodite: Theatreworks' VENUS IN FUR
by Christi Esterle - March 23, 2014

Theatreworks sure knows how to set a scene. Last season, Everyman on a Bus had audiences boarding a charter for a literal and allegorical journey around the Colorado Springs downtown area. Now comes Venus in Fur, staged in an abandoned building on Tejon Street with blacked-out windows and a 'For Lease' sign over the door. Just walking into the space feels like taking part in clandestine activity. (more...)


BWW Reviews: FAC's AGNES OF GOD Captivates, Looks Forward Review BWW Reviews: FAC's AGNES OF GOD Captivates, Looks Forward
by Christi Esterle - March 21, 2014

The performance on Thursday evening carried more than the usual share of preview jitters: lines were stumbled over, cues missed, and overall the performance did not attain the level of professionalism that the FAC is capable of providing...But in spite of this I was captivated, inspired both by the performance I saw and by what it had the potential to become. Because when Agnes of God works (and it did, more often than not) it's a thrilling mystery and an engrossing parable about faith, skepticism, and the psychology behind our deeply held beliefs. Encompassed by Christopher L Sheley's beautifully minimalist halo of a set, Levy and his cast take the audience on a journey into the dark uncharted territory of the human soul. (more...)
