What better subject for a musical?]]> <![CDATA[All the way]]> Historically, the terms “Rated R” and “dinner theater” have rarely been used in the same sentence. Dinner theater is something you dress up for, not a place to see, for example, men strip down to their skivvies (and then some).]]> <![CDATA[Nobody puts Falstaff in a corner]]> Now in its 57th season, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival is enjoying a wellearned renaissance. The 2014 CSF is full of interesting, high-quality offerings, chief of which is the uproarious The Merry Wives of Windsor. During the 12 years I have had the privilege of reviewing the festival, I can recall only a few other examples of productions this entertaining.]]> <![CDATA[The perils of opening for Jeff Tweedy in Kansas City]]> How do you handle a heckler? This isn’t even a comedy show. It’s not like you’re headlining Comedy Works in Denver; the rules are different here.]]> <![CDATA[Shakespeare's best villain]]> 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.]]> <![CDATA[Divas]]> Aug. 23 will be the ninth annual Absolute! Fabulous!

Through Sept. 6..]]> <![CDATA[Christopher Titus is a loser]]> Plenty of comics know that tragedy can make for some great comedy, but few have mastered it the way Christopher Titus has. After all, he’s got plenty of great material to work with: a dead, crazy mom; a dead, alcoholic dad; a dead marriage; and a dead television show, all which have shaped him into one of the darkest comics around.]]> <![CDATA[YOLO!]]> Art store/performance space/gathering-of-the-minds venue madelife has been running its block-party soiree style Sunday Social series throughout the summer, featuring tunes, food, art and shenanigans, with participatory art and culture vibe..]]> <![CDATA[Chuckles]]> Poundstone has won Emmys, written books, is ranked at 88 on Comedy Central’s Greatest Comedians of All Time, was inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame in 2010, and was the first female comedian to perform at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. When you see all that, suddenly, some radio quiz show seems kind of irrelevant.]]> <![CDATA[The king’s speeches]]> The final play of this year’s Colorado Shakespeare Festival, Richard II, marks the beginning of an audacious plan by the CSF to produce, in order, the entire Henriad tetralogy.]]> <![CDATA[Theater | Week of April 3, 2014]]> Me, Myself and I at the Dairy Center]]> <![CDATA[A farce within a farce]]> It’s a testament to the playwright, cast and director of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s Noises Off that something as subtle as a missed stage direction can become a hilarious running joke in a play.]]> <![CDATA[High seas hijinks]]> 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. ]]> <![CDATA[Choose your own adventure]]> Attendees don’t just stroll through a haunted house, gawking at the horror show all willy-nilly. They are handed a military-replica machine-gun that fires lasers so they can gun down the zombies. A headshot triggers a flash of light and vibration from the sensors mounted to the actor’s heads and down they go; a body shot and they just keep coming.]]> <![CDATA[Yee-haw!]]> It’s not exactly in the town charter or anything, but hot time summer in the city kicks off with the Boulder Creek Festival in May. Cold time skiing in the mountains announces its return this week with the Boulder Creek Hometown Festival, which is, well… pretty similar but with slightly more risk of rain.]]>
