BWW Review: MRS. MANNERLY at Arvada Center Black Box Theatre BWW Review: MRS. MANNERLY at Arvada Center Black Box Theatre
by colin roybal - February 09, 2016

Keep your elbows off the table. Always hold a door for a lady. Remember to say 'please' and 'thank you'. These are just some of the commandments of Mrs. Mannerly's manners class, and in her classroom, you'd better follow the rules.... (more...)
BWW Review: University of Northern Colorado's THE PIANO LESSON BWW Review: University of Northern Colorado's THE PIANO LESSON
by Felicia Tassone - February 08, 2016

The Piano Lesson is an important part of American theater.  August Wilson wrote a story that needs to be told, now more than ever.  And a story which asks the important questions like, What do you do with your legacy, and how do you best put it to use?  Are we forced to live in the shadows of our an...

by Chris Arneson - February 05, 2016

The Addams Family has been playing BDT Stage in Boulder since November, but even though death is just around the corner for this show's run, it still manages to be everything but neat, sweet and petite. (Which is exactly what an homage to the classic family deserves.)... (more...)

by Felicia Tassone - February 01, 2016

Ring of Fire, a lively jukebox revue of the music of the Man in Black, blazes bright at Midtown Arts Center in Fort Collins, CO. There are a total of five actors, all of which accompany themselves on multiple instruments as they take the audience on a journey through Johnny Cash's discography.... (more...)

by Felicia Tassone - February 01, 2016

Everything you have ever secretly thought about dating, romance, marriage, lovers, husbands, wives and in-laws, but were afraid to admit.'  This tagline sums up I Love You, Your Perfect, Now Change, the charming revue that is currently playing at Midtown Arts Center's black box theatre.  The show is...

BWW Review: DIRTY DANCING - THE CLASSIC STORY ON STAGE at the Buell Theatre BWW Review: DIRTY DANCING - THE CLASSIC STORY ON STAGE at the Buell Theatre
by Chris Arneson - January 28, 2016

There's currently a live version of the classic movie Dirty Dancing touring, and it's in Denver through the end of the month. I'll admit, I've never seen the film version of Dirty Dancing. (I swear, it's the truth.) But I had the time of my life. (OK, sorry.)... (more...)
BWW Review: VIOLET at Town Hall Arts Center BWW Review: VIOLET at Town Hall Arts Center
by Chris Arneson - January 26, 2016

While Violet may appear to be in new musical in some theatergoers' eyes, the show actually has been around for a couple decades. Making its start Off-Broadway in 1997, Violet was considered a revival for its 2014 Broadway run starring Sutton Foster. Adapted from Doris Betts' story 'The Ugliest Pilgr... (more...)

by Felicia Tassone - January 25, 2016

There are a few shows that one can say the title of, and even a random person off the street who knows nothing about theatre would say 'I have heard of that.' Hello, Dolly! is one of those shows.... (more...)

BWW Review: Inspire Creative's MARY POPPINS Comes Together in a Delightful Way BWW Review: Inspire Creative's MARY POPPINS Comes Together in a Delightful Way
by Christi Esterle - January 18, 2016

Mary Poppins is a very technologically intensive show, and like a lot of such works, it's easy to forget that there is more to it than the theatrical bells and whistles. So it's nice to see a production like the one currently playing at the PACE Center which, if it's occasionally a letdown on the vi... (more...)

by Christi Esterle - January 17, 2016

The opening night performance of Fine Arts Center's Buyer & Cellar comes at the conclusion of a week that saw several public figures pass from this life, including iconic performers David Bowie and Alan Rickman. For the past several days, social media has been filled with people expressing sorrow an... (more...)
BWW Review: THE BIG BANG at Spotlight Theatre Company BWW Review: THE BIG BANG at Spotlight Theatre Company
by Chris Arneson - January 15, 2016

You take your seat as a man in a vest and untucked shirt offers you fancy grapes (grah-pays) on a skewer. You're about to catch a performance of a multi-million dollar show--kinda. Only it's in the apartment of a vacationing proctologist, and the writers haven't really put that much money into it ye... (more...)
BWW Review: FAC's Dream of a WHITE CHRISTMAS BWW Review: FAC's Dream of a WHITE CHRISTMAS
by Christi Esterle - December 14, 2015

Christmas is tailor-made for nostalgia--all those ornaments passed down through the years, all those familiar songs and television specials--and it doesn't get more nostalgic than White Christmas, a show that calls up memories not only of the timeless Irving Berlin song and the 1954 film built aroun...

BWW Review: Theatreworks' BORN YESTERDAY BWW Review: Theatreworks' BORN YESTERDAY
by Christi Esterle - December 07, 2015

Born Yesterday, first performed in 1946, is a story that focuses on political corruption, corporate interests twisting the democratic process for their own ends, agenda-driven journalists, and a call to shed one's apathy and take control of a government that, ideally, exists to serve us all. The mor... (more...)

by Chris Arneson - November 25, 2015

The holidays are generally a good time to reconnect with your old Peanuts pals. But this time, they're about 10 years older...and maybe Charlie Brown isn't such a good man anymore. ... (more...)

by Felicia Tassone - October 30, 2015

University of Northern Colorado brings Stephen Sondheim (Music and Lyrics) and James Lapine's (Book) musical, Sunday in the Park with George, to life in a production that is truly picture perfect.  The show is based off the masterpiece, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, by Georges...

BWW Review: WEST SIDE STORY at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse BWW Review: WEST SIDE STORY at the Candlelight Dinner Playhouse
by Felicia Tassone - October 26, 2015

'But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks' This line from Romeo & Juliet is one of the most famous moments in theatrical history. Romeo & Juliet is arguably the most beloved and notable love story in the world. Star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, continue to evolve, with one of their... (more...)
BWW Review: Theatreworks' Haunting New Adaptation of GHOSTS BWW Review: Theatreworks' Haunting New Adaptation of GHOSTS
by Christi Esterle - October 26, 2015

Murray Ross' adaptation of Ghosts distills Henrik Ibsen's three-act play into a brisk, intermission-free 100 minutes. A concession to shorter attention spans? Perhaps, but Ross' primary focus here is maintaining an uninterrupted pace as the events of the play hurtle towards their inevitable traged... (more...)
BWW Review: Into the Twists and Turns of SET's LONESOME HOLLOW BWW Review: Into the Twists and Turns of SET's LONESOME HOLLOW
by Christi Esterle - October 23, 2015

If you've ever walked a Chartres labyrinth, you know they can be deceptive. Your path skirts the center, but you've barely started; it looks like you're on the way out when you're really heading further in. Which makes a labyrinth a fitting metaphor for both the play Lonesome Hollow and its eponym... (more...)
Bww Review: FAC's WAIT UNTIL DARK an Engrossing Thriller Bww Review: FAC's WAIT UNTIL DARK an Engrossing Thriller
by Christi Esterle - October 18, 2015

Vampires, slasher killers, and paranormal activity are all well and good, but for my money nothing beats the chills of a good suspense story. Uncertainty and the fear of the unknown are immensely engrossing narrative devices, compelling you to follow along even as you dread what might come next. So ... (more...)
BWW Review: FAC's ELEPHANT AND PIGGIE Good, Silly Fun BWW Review: FAC's ELEPHANT AND PIGGIE Good, Silly Fun
by Christi Esterle - October 16, 2015

It is my not-very-humble opinion that Mo Willems' Elephant and Piggie series ranks among the best early reader books available. The pachyderm-and-porcine duo gallivant through a series of adventures in the same spirit Dr. Seuss first embraced when he started writing about felines and their headgear:... (more...)

by colin roybal - October 15, 2015

Stephen Sondheim is one of the most celebrated and revered icons of modern musical theatre. His work has been lighting up Broadway for over 5 decades, and while not all of his shows have been major hits, his work, even in the failures, has been well-respected by all. Sondheim on Sondheim is a wonder... (more...)
