Love Alone / Firehouse Theatre Company
Oct 13 all-day

When Helen’s lesbian partner of twenty years dies unexpectedly in minor surgery, Helen and her daughter want answers. Confused by the hospital’s silence around the death, they bring a lawsuit against the doctors. Now Dr. Becca Neal must confront her feelings about losing her patient while she juggles the demands of a lawsuit. Love Alone tracks the fallout in both the patient’s and the doctor’s homes, as both households navigate uncharted waters of anger, humor, and longing. This powerful story of how we grieve and how we heal speaks to an essential truth: we will all be patients one day.

Harvey / PHAMALY Theatre Company
Oct 18 all-day

“We have entered as strangers…soon we have friends.” The affable Elwood P. Dowd has developed a life of contentment that he shares with his best friend: a 6-foot-tall pooka rabbit. But his eccentric ways are increasingly threatening to his sister’s social aspirations, and she resolves to have him committed to a sanitarium…until plans go awry and she ends up being committed instead. Winner of the 1945 Pulitzer Prize, this classic comedy challenges our assumptions of what – and who – is “normal,” and whether that’s something we want to be anyhow. Harvey will be a site-specific production, performed in collaboration with Senior Housing Options at the historic Olin Hotel in Capitol Hill, which now serves as residential apartments for older adults and individuals with disabilities.

A Kiss for My Daughter, A Kiss for My Father and Motherhood: The Agony & The Ecstasy / Front Range Theatre Company
Oct 19 all-day

A Kiss for My Daughter, A Kiss for My Father —  It’s about love. It’s about relationship. It’s about Alzheimer’s. It’s about pain. It’s about confusion. It’s about loss. It’s about love.
Motherhood: The Agony & The Ecstasy — The show interprets the basic idea of motherhood and highlights it from five different perspectives. The basic concept of Motherhood is general and non-specific– that is until we add humans to the equation! Samu’s style of writing musicals is not full of dance numbers and pyrotechnics, but rather full of heart! We invite you to the emotionally charged world of Motherhood.

Commedia d’Amore / VisionBox 360
Oct 19 all-day

Commedia is not a comedy in the English speaking sense but a commedia in the european sense of a theatrical story or event, one of whose genres is commedia d’el arte. This is a commedia d’amore or commedia “of love.” Set in 1830s Italy in the home of the well established Presutti Family, the story depicts a crushingly patriarchal society where women struggle to carve out space as individuals. The play examines love in all its forms from child-like innocence to lust, to romantic longing and finally love of self.

When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder? / Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mtn College in Glenwood Springs
Oct 19 all-day

When You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder? — The setting is Foster’s Diner, a New Mexico rest stop that lost most of its clientele when a new highway bypass opened. Employees include restless cook Stephen (nicknamed “Red Ryder”), mousy waitress Angel, and their no-nonsense boss Clark. Lyle, owner of the adjacent filling station, stops in on occasion to break the monotony with his cheery banter. The boring routine of the daily grind is disrupted with the arrival of two couples, the upscale Richard and Clarisse, and the younger and wilder Teddy, an unbalanced Vietnam War vet, and Cheryl, his hippie girlfriend. Complications arise when illegal drugs and guns enter the picture, and Teddy resorts to physical, mental, and emotional torture when he holds everyone hostage.

Bipolarity, an Avant-Garde Musical / The Divergent Dis-ease Theater Company
Oct 26 all-day

Bipolarity is a new, ground-breaking, avant-garde musical. The musical deals with two late teen boys who are battling erratic conditions of their mental illnesses. Through their journey to recover, they find each other. Spitting lyrics becomes the therapeutic dynamism in their lives. Until, one day, it isn’t. Bipolarity is loosely based on a true story. The impetus for the story was the ten innovative songs, co-written during a three month hypomanic phase. The play became the vehicle for popularizing the songs. Each song represents a varying symptom of bipolar disorder, such as grandiosity, hyper sexuality, magical thinking, paranoia, addiction, cosmic universalities, and a deep alliance with underdogs.

Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn’t mean his family isn’t still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he’s been offered a dream job. The job he’s been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn’t sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family’s love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O’Hare as bait…but we won’t give the ending away here.

“. . . at the feet of my Master I learnt the highest of human skills, the skill no other creature owns: I finally learnt how to lie.” – The Creature in Frankenstein.

Oct 29 all-day

A hair-raising rock opera, Killer Wigs From Outer Space is the story of Orville, a carnival handyman attacked by a galactic, brain-eating parasite. This alien from another planet transforms Orville into a rock-and-roll prophet for peace with out-of-this-world hair. Battling forces of evil with several colorful characters, we follow him on an epic operatic journey to save our world.

An Evening with Paula Poundstone / The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company in Colorado Springs
Nov 1 all-day

With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s preeminent comedians. She improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net. There’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong. Paula is recognized on Comedy Central’s list of The 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time. She won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and she is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.

Church & State / Fine Arts Center Theatre Company at Colorado College in Colorado Springs
Nov 2 all-day

Three days before his bid for reelection, in the wake of a school shooting in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, a Republican U.S. senator makes an off-the-cuff comment to a blogger that gets leaked on “the Twitter,” calling into question the senator’s stance on guns and God. As his devoutly Christian wife and liberal Jewish campaign manager try to contain the damage, this look at how religion influences politics and how politics has become a religion is simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and uplifting.
