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.

Murder with moxie

The bodies and the laughs pile up in Longmont

By Gary Zeidner
Did you know that the Longmont Theatre Company has been around for 53 years? That means that for more than the past five decades, 600 months or 18,250 days, depending on which unit of measure one prefers, the Longmont Theatre Company has been bringing theatre to life in Boulder County.

Heavens to BETC

Bull fights, beef Wellington and buckets of laughs

By Gary Zeidner
The Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company - aka BETC, which is pronounced 'Betsy' for those of you still puzzling out the headline above - concludes its fifth season with the regional premiere of Michael Hollinger's An Empty Plate in the Café du Grand Boeuf.

Twirling, twirling, twirling toward freedom!

A reimagined circus makes us all kids again

By Gary Zeidner
Les 7 doigts de la main translates as 'The seven fingers of the hand' and is a play on an old French idiom about disparate parts coming together to work toward a common goal. Either that, or it's really the punch line to a filthy French joke on par with The Aristocrats.

The legalized gambling, not the children's song

Bingo spills out of the parlor and onto the stage

By Gary Zeidner
After an extremely abbreviated amount of Internet-based research, I am guessing that, unfortunately, Mr. Sheen had nothing to do with the titular modification. (Regardless, Go Team Crazy!) According to the Inter-webs, this bingo-centric play is commonly referred to as Bingo: The Winning Musical, Bingo: The Musical.

Dropkick Murphys still going strong with latest album

By Gary Zeidner
Dropkick Murphys (DKM) are back, and their timing couldn’t be better. Their new album, Going Out In Style, dropped on March 1. As one of America’s most talented and popular Celtic-rock bands — one of the few and proud to feature bagpipes and electric guitar on most every song — Dropkick Murphys know a thing or two about their fan base. It’s no wonder the new album came out mere weeks before St. Patrick’s Day.

Just a kiss

Story about love and homophobia misses the mark

By Gary Zeidner
Putting on a play is one complicated proposition. Think about how difficult it is to coordinate with a small handful of your friends for a Saturday night jaunt to Pearl Street or (gasp!) Denver and you immediately get the idea.
