Wherever you go, there you are

A curious misfire by Curious

By Gary Zeidner
Into every theater company, a little failure must fall. Now in its 15th season, the Curious Theatre Company has consistently impressed me and thousands of other theater-goers with its choices of plays and executions thereof. Curious’ latest, then, is an outlier. A statistical anomaly.

Dictation from oblivion

A pen and paper hero at the Dairy

By Gary Zeidner
Founded just five years ago, BETC immediately announced itself as an up-and-comer to be watched. BETC quickly proved its worth by choosing challenging, enlivening material and producing it deftly and successfully. It is happily and without hesitation then that I declare BETC to be one of the absolute best theater companies working in Boulder today.

Jesus, Mary and Rudy

There’s a new star on the Longmont stage

By Gary Zeidner
This charming, hilarious, often touching play deserves to be sold out for the rest of its run. It is by far the best LTC production I have ever seen, and it stands toe-to-toe with the finest “major league” shows in Denver — or anywhere else along the Front Range — in the recent past.

Hip hooray and ballyhoo for 42nd Street

Boulder gets a gander at one of Broadway’s best

By Gary Zeidner
Pedigree. It’s not just a dog food. It’s heritage, tradition and history. It’s the icing on the cherry. It’s the sherry on the Sheri. It’s the ever-sotenuous thread connecting Bing Crosby to My Chemical Romance. It’s a badge of honor and a goal toward which to strive.

Merry cynics-mas

´SantaLand 4.0´ brings to light our dark holiday behaviors

By Michael Callahan
Remembering the spirit of Christmas can get difficult when parking lot road rage and wrestling over smartphones overtake Santa and good cheer.

Let it snow

Irving Berlin's White Christmas is the holly-est, jolliest show around

By Gary Zeidner
For many people, a white Christmas is the be-all and end-all of holiday cheer. Going to bed on Christmas Eve with flakes filling the air and waking up on Christmas morning to a world softened by a blanket of new-fallen snow simply can’t be beat.

Upstart Crow puts on a Wilde thing

The Upstart Crow keeps Oscar alive

By Gary Zeidner
As a longtime fan of Oscar Wilde, the corners of my mouth go instantly north whenever I hear that some industrious theatre company is mounting one of his plays.

By Michael Callahan
If you’re having a hard time this holiday season doling out your entertainment dollars, kill three birds with one stone.

The histrionic history of Colorado’s most famous cannibal

By Gary Zeidner
Famous scientists, authors and professional football players have all graduated from this hallowed institution. For many, including myself, the most noteworthy CU alumnus is by far Trey Parker, the co-creator of the subversive and long-running Comedy Central hit South Park.

Here is the school. Here is the steeple.

A God versus Darwin grudge match

By Gary Zeidner
The year is 2243. The Philadelphia Eagles have just won their first Super Bowl. And much to everyone’s surprise, God himself decides to take a leisurely stroll down 5th Avenue in New York City (now known as Little Beijing) with his arm ensconced firmly in the backside of the corpse of Charles Darwin.
