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.

A set of lies agreed upon

East Coast aggression drives quirky comedy

By Gary Zeidner
Gina Gionfriddo’s Becky Shaw isn’t informed so much by the question “Is it better to lie than to hurt someone with the truth?” but rather by the statement, “Life is pain; lies and truth are mere tools to help one salve that pain.” Curious Theatre Company’s regional premiere of this crackling comedy brings all of the play’s East Coast energy to bear on Rocky Mountain audiences.

I love Shrew-cy

Denver Center knocks the Bard out of the ballpark

By Gary Zeidner
If Front Range theatre were baseball, the Denver Center Theatre Company would be the Major League. Walking into the Stage Theatre is like walking into a pro ballpark. The energy crackles in a way that it simply doesn’t in many smaller venues, and audience expectations are understandably higher than they would be at a “minor league” performance.

Haunting harmonies

The ‘other’ Phantom presents a different take on an iconic tale

By Gary Zeidner
What is your first thought when you hear the phrase “the phantom of the opera?” Unless you’re an unabashed bibliophile or literary-minded Francophile, it’s almost certainly not the novel, Le Fantome de l’Opera, written by Gaston Leroux in 1910. Still, that early 20th century flight of fancy introduced the world to the grotesquely deformed music lover and catacomb dweller, Erik, he of the half mask and three-quarters madness.

A double dose of holiday hilarity

BETC and the Avenue Theater give the gift of laughter

By Gary Zeidner
’Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the town, some people were up while others were down. Some loved the snow and the cold and the lights; some felt the whole thing just wasn’t right. Whether this time of year makes you joyful or crass, the holidays can be one big pain in the ass. So take a quick break from the candles and bows, and enjoy a guffaw from these thespian pros.

A thriller in the second degree

Nothing is what it seems in Devil’s Thumb’s latest

By Gary Zeidner
Experiencing a theater company for the first time is very much like going on a blind date. High hopes compete with trepidation. The possibilities are limitless. You might discover your soul mate, or you could end up with a hefty tab and a nasty case of crabs. Thankfully, my first go around with Devil’s Thumb Productions, a relatively new Boulder troupe, was much more the former than the latter. She may not be my soul mate, but I’d definitely ask her out again.

CD review: Girl in a Coma, Exits & All the Rest

If you gave Girl in a Coma’s new CD, Exits & All The Rest to 10 different people, you’d likely receive in return 10 different opinions about which established female vocalist lead sing

Sight, sound, mind and mirth

Serling survives and thrives in Lafayette

By Gary Zeidner
With all the horrors that surround us daily, what a gift is laughter? The folks at the Theater Company of Lafayette (TCL) seem to know that it’s the best medicine, for they have brought forth the eighth iteration of their much-beloved tribute to one of the staples of TV’s bygone years with "Return to the Twilight Zone, A Parody."

Philately attraction

Angry people fight over stamps

By Gary Zeidner
Did you know that Mauritius is a tiny island just east of Madagascar? Neither did I. That Mauritius was the sole, native home of the now extinct Dodo bird, and that Mauritius was only the fifth country ever to issue postage stamps, were also facts that had, until now, eluded me.
