Love’s Labor’s Won (FREE Staged Reading) / Upstart Crow Theatre Company in Boulder
Mar 20 all-day

At the end of Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labor’s Lost,” the Princess is called back to France, leaving four budding romances hanging. If Shakespeare ever finished the story, the play is lost.
Local playwright and long-time Upstart Crow Theatre Company member, Katherine Dubois has taken up the characters and pictured what their reunion might look like. The Princess and her ladies are returning to the court of Navarre after a year has passed. A lot can happen in a year. Has love survived the year’s separation?  Have Sir Nathaniel and Master Holofernes found the manuscript of a lost masterpiece? Can Don Armado recover from a broken heart? Complications include an escaped bear, a tumble into the moat, a misdelivered letter, wearing of masks, breaking of engagements, plenty of misunderstandings, and the least funny riddle in the universe.

Crazy for You / Performance Now Theatre Company
Mar 22 all-day

Crazy for You is a truly delightful homage to the beloved, optimistic musicals of the 1930s: a world of showgirls and cowboys in which a city boy and a country girl reconcile their differences, fall in love and save a theater, the old-fashioned way. The heartwarming story follows a hilarious case of mistaken identity, dotted with Vaudeville-era jokes and tender moments, and it uses every opportunity to break into spectacular tap dance routines. This romantic comedy, which won both a Tony Award and an Olivier Award for Best Musical, is based on popular George and Ira Gershwin tunes including “I Got Rhythm,” “Embraceable You,” “Nice Work if You Can Get It” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

Our Town / Miners Alley Playhouse in Golden
Mar 22 all-day

Our Town is a landmark in American drama (for a very good reason), Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town tells the story of a small town – Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire – in order to tell us the story of every town the whole world over. Narrated by the Stage Manager, we follow the Gibbs and Webb families, residents of Grover’s Corners, through twelve years of life changes — from the ordinary in Act I (“Daily Life”), to the romantic in Act II (“Love and Marriage”), to the heartbreaking and heartwarming in Act III (“Death and Eternity”). Through the young lovers Emily and George, their strong and loving parents, and the many other Grover’s Corners’ locals, Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human. “Oh, earth,” Emily Webb exclaims towards the play’s end, “you’re too wonderful for anyone to realize you.” With humor, wit, and exceptionally powerful storytelling, Our Town offers a unique opportunity for audience members to make precisely that realization.

Red / Bas Bleu Theatre in Fort Collins
Mar 23 all-day

Master abstract expressionist Mark Rothko has just landed the biggest commission in the history of modern art, a series of murals for New York’s famed Four Seasons Restaurant. In the two fascinating years that follow, Rothko works feverishly with his young assistant, Ken, in his studio on the Bowery. But when Ken gains the confidence to challenge him, Rothko faces the agonizing possibility that his crowning achievement could also become his undoing. Raw and provocative, Red is a searing portrait of an artist’s ambition and vulnerability as he tries to create a definitive work for an extraordinary setting.
“Not every painting has to rip your guts out and expose your soul! Not everyone wants art that actually HURTS!” – Ken

Breaking box office records week after week and receiving unanimous raves on Broadway, this production of Hello, Dolly! pays tribute to the original work of legendary director/choreographer Gower Champion – hailed both then and now as one of the greatest stagings in musical theater history. Rolling Stone calls it “a must-see event.

Borscht Belted with Warren Epstein / The Millibo Art Theatre in Colorado Springs
Mar 28 all-day

“For comedians, the Catskills were an institute of humor. Comedy university. If Vaudeville was junior high, the Borscht Belt was post graduate. A professor friend once told me that she believed the Catskills was born out of the Holocaust. That our only response to the most horrifying atrocity of modern history was … humor. When we ran out of tears, we found we could laugh”.

From screaming, maniacal chefs and the Master of Simon Sez to the Kings and Queens of Stand-up, Borscht Belted conjures the sights, smells, and snickers in a place that still resonates in our collective funny bone. Warren Epstein, the creator, and star of Borscht Belted, channels Rodney Dangerfield, Woody Allen, Jack Benny, and other humor pioneers as he recreates his childhood memories from the famous Catskill resort area in New York. His poignant recreation of Jimmy Grecco “King of the Catskills” gives us a memorable portrait of a great comic and the incredible era of American Comedy that produced him.

Avenue Q is part flesh, part puppet, and packed with heart. This laugh-out-loud musical tells the story of a bright-eyed college grad who goes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. Moving to the only place he can afford – all the way out on Avenue Q – he meets an odd assortment of offbeat friends who struggle to find jobs, dates, and an ever-elusive purpose in life. Filled with gut-busting humor, biting satire, and a delightfully catchy score, Avenue Q is likely the most irreverent musical you’ll ever see. “Hilarious, insightful entertainment – an exuberant blast of fresh air!” – Theater Review

Outside Mullingar / Firehouse Theater Company
Mar 30 all-day

Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, a state of affairs that—due to his painful shyness—suits him well. Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, watching the years slip away. With Anthony’s father threatening to disinherit him and a land feud simmering between their families, Rosemary has every reason to fear romantic catastrophe. But then, in this very Irish story with a surprising depth of poetic passion, these yearning, eccentric souls fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. Their journey is heartbreaking, funny, and ultimately deeply moving. Outside Mullingar is a compassionate, delightful work about how it’s never too late to take a chance on love.

Maggie and Raymond have just flunked their hostile workplace training seminar. The only way they can keep their jobs is to put their microaggressions aside and attend the birthday party for the employee they bully the most, Karl, the office nerd. What they don’t know is that Karl is the only person on earth who can save humanity from destruction. That’s right, the world is ending and Karl is the savior. Or is Karl just an evil genius who has staged the evening in order to seek revenge? Karl, The Magnificent is an absurd farce that asks the question, “If we had to start the human race over with only four highly flawed individuals would we be up to the task?” Or are Homo sapiens a lost cause, an evolutionary mistake, a dud?

Revenge followed by revenge becomes an inescapable cycle in Shakespeare’s bloodiest play. When returning war hero Titus returns to Rome with the Queen of the Goths as a prisoner, the consequences unleash a hellscape of violence. In this brutal production, Fearless bridges the gap between Ancient Rome and 2019 America. Hate based in misogyny, racism and homophobia explode in intense acts of violence. Also, two characters get baked into pies.

Apr 5 all-day

The Ladies of the Camellias is a hilarious farce about an imagined meeting in Paris, 1897, between the famous theater divas Sarah Bernhardt and Eleonora Duse. The two actresses—who were the biggest and most temperamental stars of their day—were scheduled to perform back-to-back productions of the play The Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas. Into this tense situation comes Ivan, a young Russian anarchist who threatens to blow up everyone in the theater—especially the two divas—unless his comrades are released from prison. Bernhardt and Duse must meet and greet each other for the first time as they are taken hostage by the armed Ivan, yet remain the ultimate theater professionals.

Travel back to the Harlem Renaissance – music was swinging, bands were big, and the jazz scene continued to rise. Women embraced their independence yet still desired the convention of marriage.

The Boys in the Band / Vintage Theatre
Apr 19 all-day

This comic drama centers on a group of gay men gathering in a NYC apartment for a birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music is turned up, the evening slowly exposes the fault lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity. This revolutionary play changed theatrical history by unapologetically putting gay men’s lives onstage which had never been seen before in a realistic way.
