She went and made it after all

The wit and wisdom of Molly Ivins

By Gary Zeidner
Mary Tyler “Molly” Ivins was a legendary American journalist far too few have heard of. Though she garnered her fair share of notoriety and praise over the course of her long and productive career, her populist, anti-government message was so cogently thought out and entertainingly presented that it deserves wider acknowledgment.

Just like real life

The truth comes out at Rancho Mirage

By Gary Zeidner
I’d be interested to hear the stories from Dietz’s own life that germinated into this play. I bet they’re doozies. After all, it takes a strong person to not only recognize that we keep secrets — often Mt. Everest-sized secrets — from our wives, husbands, parents, children and best friends, but also to take that uncomfortable knowledge and spin it into the kind of play that keeps you laughing out the door then makes you think hard for the rest of the night.

A dirge for the American dream

Death comes to life at the Denver Center

By Gary Zeidner
If Willy Loman were an ice cream flavor, he’d be American Raspberry. If he were a car, he’d be a Ford Edsel. If he were a song, he’d be Sinatra’s “Here’s to the Losers.”

Fear and self-loathing in New York

BETC kicks off its eighth season in style

By Gary Zeidner
Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company (BETC) is one of Boulder’s best, bar none. From its first production, Antigone, BETC began raising the bar for Front Range theater. With Seminar, BETC gets its eighth season started with the second lively, sly and often humorous Theresa Rebeck play it has produced.

Bus Stop: Princeton, Topeka and points beyond

Upstart Crow’s latest a study in relativity

By Gary Zeidner
William Inge’s Bus Stop, which the Upstart Crow’s signage clearly states has nothing to do with Boulder’s own long-established and much-beloved gentleman’s club of the same name, tells the tale of a group of strangers thrust together on a dark and stormy night in rural Kansas in the winter of 1955.

A starcatcher is born at Denver Center for the Performing Arts

How Peter Pan got his crow back

By Gary Zeidner
Every child yearns to grow up and throw off the seemingly unbearable yoke of parents, teachers, priests and other bullies. Invariably, they realize too late that while the adult world is a place in which they can eat ice cream for dinner and stay up as late as they want, early onset diabetes and 7 a.m. personnel meetings are extremely harsh overlords.

Review: Colorado Shakespeare Festival's 'Macbeth'

Afghanistan-set 'Macbeth' darkly dazzles

By Gary Zeidner
With American troops still on the ground in Afghanistan today and with the relationship between the U.S. and Russia becoming more eerily Cold War-ish every week, Page’s choice to set Macbeth in the 1980s Soviet occupation of the perennially war-torn Iranian neighbor is nothing short of brilliant. This Macbeth may be the most thought-provoking and emotionally arresting production of a Shakespeare play that I have ever seen.
