Where the rubber meets the stage

A world premiere from NYC at BDT

By Gary Zeidner
Itīs human nature to want to be first. From something as simple as two friends on a morning jog to the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union, people are driven to outstrip the next guy. It’s hardwired. It’s why both joggers push a wee bit harder with each passing mile until they’re sprinting the final block home.

Shades of grey

A Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Clybourne Park packs a punch

By Gary Zeidner
For that reason alone, I encourage all you overwhelmingly white, privileged, sheltered Boulderites to get out of the bubble and make the trek down to Denver for a performance of Clybourne Park. Continuing its tradition of bringing intelligent, challenging plays to the stage, the Curious Theatre Company opens its 14th season with the regional premiere of Bruce Norris’ 2011 Pulitzer Prize-winning examination of racial issues both in contemporary America and in its more, er, black-and-white past.

Wrecked 'em? Damn near kilt 'em!

Jesters brings Lerner and Loewe’s classic back to Longmont

By Gary Zeidner
So, you owe me. Yes, you, the reader of this review who will not have to endure the gastronomical atrocities that I, Christ-like, have suffered for thee. Before you start flipping pages or reviewing the table of contents, this is not a restaurant review.

From Russia with laughs

Gogol joins the Shakespeare Festival

By Gary Zeidner
And make no mistake, Nikolai Gogol’s The Inspector General, presented by the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, is but a Janet and Chrissy away from that sitcom hit of the ’70s and ’80s. As with pretty much every episode of Three’s Company, The Inspector General revolves around a case of mistaken identity. The corrupt leaders of a provincial Russian community learn that an inspector general has been dispatched to their little burg.

Love kills

Romeo and Juliet filled with the angst of the irrational

By Gary Zeidner
The 54th Annual Colorado Shakespeare Festival kicked off last weekend with the ultimate tale of tragic teen love, Romeo and Juliet. The festival features four plays this year. In addition to the brawling Montagues and Capulets, the idyllic outdoor Mary Rippon Theatre also hosts The Comedy of Errors. In the indoor University Theatre, you’ll find The Little Prince, based on the existential classic by Antoine De Saint-Exupery and written by Rick Cummins and John Scoullar, as well as Nikolai Gogol’s The Inspector General.

Face to Face pens solid summer album

By Gary Zeidner
I’m not sure how I have remained completely and utterly unaware of Face To Face until now. They had a big time radio hit with “Disconnected” in 1994, which was back in the pre-iPod days of yore when I would still turn on the radio more than semi-annually. Plus, according to the Interwebs, “Disconnected” was featured in the Lori Petty opus, Tank Girl, and the last time I checked I was one of only three or four sad, misguided and maladjusted people in the entire country who have seen that movie more than once (and who will actually admit it).

Two wings and a prayer

Boulder gets first glimpse of brand new musical.

By Gary Zeidner
People often analogize the creative process to the reproductive one. They talk about the “labor pains” artists go through as they struggle to bring a novel piece of art into the world. They refer to “giving birth” to a new idea, painting, play or piece of music. There are, of course, exceptions to this referential rule. I’ve never heard it applied to, say, a mime routine or professional wrestling story arc, but it does seem, generally, to track to the world of art.

Busking on the boards

A street performance comes indoors

By Gary Zeidner
'Up In The Air' is what happens when a talented street performer is given the green light to move inside and take center stage in an actual theater. Peter Davison, a one-time street performer, National Juggling Champion and Co-Artistic Director of Boulder Ballet, took the opportunity and created a piece of street theater styled for the stage. Though he utters not a syllable during the course of the show, Davison speaks volumes with his movements, expressions and choices of musical accompaniment.

CD REVIEW: Flogging Molly's 'Speed of Darkness'

By Gary Zeidner
When it comes to Celtic-infused rock ’n’ roll in America today, fans predominantly fall into two camps. Those who prefer their fiddles and bagpipes accompanying a harder-edged, punk-flavored sound gravitate toward Dropkick Murphys. Those who, instead, seek the sounds of Scotland and the Emerald Isle blended with more “mature,” less aggressive arrangements usually dial up Flogging Molly.

Me-wow

The fantastic felines of Cats prowl Boulder’s Dinner Theatre

By Gary Zeidner
That's right; Boulder's Dinner Theatre is enjoying its 34th season, which means that BDT has bested the one and only Lord Jesus Christ in terms of corporeal longevity on this big, blue, mostly-water-covered rock we call Earth.
