Hypnotist/comedian Flip Orley wants you to look into his eyes

Comic brings his mass hypnosis show to Denver

By David Accomazzo
Orley is a hypnotist. He’s also a comedian, a hypno-comic, if you will.

How many Mormons does it take to baptize a Ugandan?

Poetry in motion

An evening at Miners Alley with Emily Dickinson, 'The Belle of Amherst'

By Gary Zeidner
Given the presumed lack of attention to all things poetical by the younger generation, a play like 'The Belle of Amherst' becomes monumentally important.

When life changes course

Roll up for Gemma Wilcox’s ‘Magical Mystery Detour’

By David Accomazzo
Gemma Wilcox, a 34-year-old British expat who produces, directs and acts in one-woman shows, is one of those Fringe Fest regulars. She won the “Best of Fest” award in 2005, 2006 and 2008, and she’s back this year with a one-woman show called The Magical Mystery Detour, which she co-wrote with director Elizabeth Baron.

Fringe Fest brings the funny

Comedian Kelsie Huff to teach comedy to Boulderites

By Sebastian Murdock
Chicago comedian Kelsie Huff is no stranger to a rough crowd. “My first standup I went to a bar near Wrigley Field, which is very sporty and very douchebaggy,” Huff says. “I thought, ‘I’m just gonna tell one of my stories!’ and got a lot of ‘Show us your tits!’ instead.”

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.
