High seas hijinks

By Gary Zeidner
Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island rounds out the CSF’s 2012 season. It shares Mary Rippon outdoor theatre space with Twelfth Night and Richard III, so its set can sprawl and the action on it flow fast and furious.

A farce within a farce

'Noises Off' heavy on the laughs

By David Accomazzo
It’s a testament to the playwright, cast and director of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s Noises Off that something as subtle as a missed stage direction can become a hilarious running joke in a play.

Ladies, ladies, ladies!

Tina and Not-So-Silent Nigel are in the hizzouse!

By Gary Zeidner
An ambitious project, Women of Will examines Shakespeare’s evolution as a writer through the prism of his female characters. It is not one play but actually five distinct plays that span Shakespeare’s entire folio in chronological order.

Shakespeare's best villain

´Richard III´ return with a vengeance

By Gary Zeidner
Say what you will about Tybalt or Iago, Edmund (the bastard!) or Lady Macbeth. For my money, the greatest Shakespearean villain is Richard. He opens Richard III as the Duke of Gloucester and ends it as the King of England. He is, by his own hand or through his devices, a serial killer of prolific pedigree.

Camp at the opera

A look into why so many opera companies put on musicals

By Peter Alexander
You would not expect to meet Aunt Eller and Curly, two of the homespun characters of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic American musical Oklahoma!, at the opera house. But up in Central City this summer, that’s exactly where they are.

Christopher Titus is a loser

Comedian talks ex-show, ex-wife and ex-vice presidential candidate

By Sebastian Murdock
Plenty of comics know that tragedy can make for some great comedy, but few have mastered it the way Christopher Titus has. After all, he’s got plenty of great material to work with: a dead, crazy mom; a dead, alcoholic dad; a dead marriage; and a dead television show, all which have shaped him into one of the darkest comics around.

And the first night was ‘Twelfth Night’

The Colorado Shakespeare Festival opens anew

By Gary Zeidner
For the 55th time, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival brings ol’ Will back to Boulder. This year’s annual celebration of one of the world’s greatest playwrights showcases two Shakespeare, one Shakespeare-related and two non-Shakespeare plays: Twelfth Night, Richard III, Women of Will, Noises Off and Treasure Island. The festival kicked off last weekend in splendid style with Twelfth Night.

Scratching an itch

Devil’s Thumb takes on ‘Bug’

By Gary Zeidner
It’s not often that one has the opportunity to see psychological horror played out on stage. Pratfalls and buffoonery abound. Studies in tragedy crop up weekly. Musical theater is so prevalent that it has become its own sub-genre. But plays devoted to the terrors that come from within one’s own mind are few and far between.

Comedic birthing pool

Upright Citizens Brigade incubates top talent and the accompanying laughter

By Chris Parker
Putting comedy within anyone’s reach has been one of the goals of the Upright Citizens Brigade, a comedy troupe that enjoyed a run on Comedy Central from 1998 to 2000 and now operates theaters in Los Angeles and New York that have served as stepping stones for many comedic actors and writers. The company also tours the nation, putting on comedy shows coast-to-coast.
