Boulder Ensemble's latest is 'Survivor: Leipzig'

BETC ends seventh season on a high note with 'Bach at Leipzig'

By Gary Zeidner
After the rather lackluster The Other Place, the usually metronomically reliable Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company (BETC) comes back strong with Bach at Leipzig. If you enjoyed the movie Amadeus — and if you haven’t seen that film I can’t recommend it enough — you’ll revel in this jaunty, cheeky, fictionalized look at the cutthroat competition to assume one of the highest posts in the rarified world of music in Germany circa 1722.

Praise the Lord and pass the lefse

The sisterhood of the simmering casserole in 'Church Basement Ladies'

By Gary Zeidner
Even if you are a Dawkins-lovin’, God-mockin’, card-carryin’ atheist, the odds are that during your youth you spent some time in and around a church or synagogue.

A drama in thriller drag

'The Other Place' is one twist short of zowie

By Gary Zeidner
To quote Public Enemy, “Don’t believe the hype.” To paraphrase the Dead Milkmen, I’m not saying that The Other Place isn’t a good play. It’s a fine play, an all-American play full of good, upstanding people.

Walking in the whimsy wonderland of 'Almost, Maine'

Love is in the cold, winter air

By Gary Zeidner
Love. It’s life’s sweetest reward. If you let it flow, it floats back to you. Love can be exciting. It can be new. And if you get on board with love, it might even be expecting you.

A clockwork beige for Boulder's Catamounts

A little bit of sci-fi lite

By Gary Zeidner
If you’ve seen even a small handful of movie commercials over the past decade or so, your mind’s ear will immediately recall the intense, slightly gravelly voice I’m referring to when I ask you to imagine an ad that starts, “In a world where mutants run the surface and pterodactyls rule the sky, the only way out is underground.”

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.

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.
