How many Mormons does it take to baptize a Ugandan?

By Gary Zeidner
On the metaphorical eighth day, Matt Stone, Trey Parker and Robert Lopez brought forth the funniest musical in recent memory, The Book of Mormon.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It has a wealthy dowager in it

What more needs be said?

By Gary Zeidner
In a world brimming with so much cynicism, now more than ever people occasionally need the kind of charming, guileless sentimentality offered up by shows like The Drowsy Chaperone. Though it first hit Broadway in 2006, aside from its meta-structure The Drowsy Chaperone feels like it could easily be a product of the Jazz Age.

The man, the myth, the legend

Tribute to Johnny Cash hits all the right notes

By Gary Zeidner
Though they were incredibly gifted performers whose music still resonates and whose influences remain readily apparent today, you don’t see bumper stickers reading, “God Bless Janis Joplin.” Or Jimi Hendrix. Or Frank Sinatra. Or Dean Martin. The only such bumper sticker you ever see is, “God Bless Johnny Cash,” and you don’t just see it on beat-up, old pickup trucks.

He came, he saw, he kvetched

Cantankerous curmudgeon comically cudgels citizenry

By Gary Zeidner
Originally produced in 1939 and since adapted for radio, television and the big screen, The Man Who Came to Dinner has proven itself deserving of the label “classic.” Yet, until now, I have never seen it live on stage, so I want to give a great, big “Thank you!” to the Longmont Theatre Company for bringing George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s comic crucible to Boulder County.
