Stories On Stage Presents COLOR PLATES Streaming Live From Boulder's Nomad Playhouse

Stories on Stage presents "Color Plates" streaming live from Boulder's Nomad Playhouse, at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 9. Ticket holders will receive a link to the performance. Tickets are $15 and available at or by calling 303-494-0523

With the paintings imagery as their backdrop, Randy Moore, Anne Penner and Geoffrey Kent will read from Adam Golaski's "Color Plates." A series of interrelated stories set in a mysterious art museum curated by a sort-of Mary Cassatt. Four rooms of Mary's museum are open to the public, and they are named Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Mary Cassatt. Brushstroke upon brushstroke, line upon line, story upon story, the small fictions in "Color Plates" will engage and challenge you to consider the intersections between art and time.

The tales in Color Plates are like this-snapshots of sorts, and each one takes on a life of its own. But together they form a pastiche, a kaleidoscope of worlds fused into a beautiful whole. - Jessica Henkle,
