The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time / The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company at Colorado College in Colorado Springs

Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. It’s seven minutes after midnight and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. His detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.

Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son, Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social convention.

Arcadia / Theatreworks at the ENT Center for the Arts in Colorado Springs

Only the brilliant Tom Stoppard could combine love, landscape, and the Second Law of Thermodynamics with such sparkling results. Moving between an uprooted garden in 1809 England and two scholars solving a mystery in the present day, Arcadia blurs the lines between past and present, order and chaos. The London Times has described the play as “perfect marriage of ideas and high comedy.” First premiering in 1993, Arcadia won an Olivier Award for Best New Play that year, and has since won Tony Awards for Best Play (1995) and Best Revival of a Play (2011).

From the very first note, Once draws you in and never lets go. This emotionally captivating musical is the only show to have music that won an Academy Award, a Grammy Award, an Olivier Award and a Tony Award. On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story, underscored by emotionally charged music. Featuring all of the magical songs from the critically acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly,” this achingly beautiful, joyously uplifting show strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all. A show like that only comes around once.

Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of the Notre Dame Cathedral, has spent his life locked in a tower by his guardian, archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo. Longing to be with other people, Quasimodo escapes to spend one day ‘out there,’ which leads to his chance encounter with the enchanting gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit though. The handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention and Frollo attempts to destroy the gypsies, powerful forces propel each of them toward their fate, be it malevolent, graceful, loving, or heroic.

When a boy’s uncle goes missing, he begs the Voodoo queen, Marie Laveau, for her help to rescue his favorite relative from the clutches of evil. Along the way he discovers the most important treasure of all, but how will he pay Madame Laveau when she comes for her reckoning? Many clerics in the Middle Ages studied necromancy as a legitimate form of education. It was believed necromancy could obtain answers from the dead that could solve real-life problems like finding missing items, identifying culprits in crimes, or even predicting the future.

Grimm's Scary Tales / Audacious Theatre

In the future, the fairytales we know and love have been lost. After Armageddon, humanity instead reaches for the stories that speak to their violent, dark, and puzzling new existence. Grimm’s Scary Tales invites small audiences to travel through a dystopian world where the bloodiest and most horrifying of the Grimm Brothers’ tales have come to life. Audiences will need to be wary of collateral blood spatter. This theatrical Halloween adventure blends elements of a haunted house with narrative immersion to create a new kind of event for the season. Grimm’s Scary Tales are brought to life by a team of women directors who put their own spin on each tale.

Hope and Gravity / Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs

When an elevator falls in a major city, nine lives intersect in surprising ways, both comic and tragic—through love and sex, poetry and dentistry; in offices, homes, and hotel rooms. Jill longs for Steve, who’s engaged to Barb, who hooks up with Peter, who’s already having an affair with Nan, who’s married to Marty, who subscribes to Elevator World. Meanwhile, nine stories off the ground, Douglas meets Tanya—who’s hoping to get pregnant with Hal—and a little miracle changes hands. By turns hilarious and profound, Hope and Gravity traces the barely perceivable threads that connect us all.

Carrie: the Musical / Longmont Theatre Company

Carrie White is a misfit. At school she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd, and virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving but cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power, and if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it.

Driving Miss Daisy / Bas Bleu Theatre Company in Fort Collins

Daisy Werthan, an elderly Jewish widow living in Atlanta, is determined to maintain her independence. However, when she crashes her car, her son, Boolie, arranges for her to have a chauffeur, an African-American driver named Hoke Colburn. Daisy and Hoke’s relationship gets off to a rocky start, but they gradually form a close friendship over the years, one that transcends racial prejudices and social convention. A warm-hearted, humorous play, Driving Miss Daisy was the winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play.

Every Brilliant Thing / OpenStage Theatre & Company in Fort Collins

1. Ice cream. 2. Water fights. 3. Staying up past your bedtime. 4. Things with stripes. 5. People falling over… Every Brilliant Thing is a one woman tour de force about a child’s fierce, flawed attempt to make sense of adult unhappiness by creating a list of everything that makes life worth living. As we follow the child to adulthood, the list becomes a touchstone that shines a gentle theatrical light on the way sweetness and sorrow are both magnified by tragedy. Exceptionally warm, unflinchingly honest and gloriously funny, this jazz-inspired story captures the irrepressible resilience of the human spirit and the capacity to find delight in the everyday.

Every Brilliant Thing

Laughing Stock / The Evergreen Players in Evergreen

When The Playhouse, a rustic New England summer theatre, schedules a repertory season of “Dracula,” “Hamlet” and “Charley’s Aunt,” comic mayhem ensues. We follow the well-intentioned, but over-matched company from outrageous auditions to ego-driven rehearsals through opening nights gone disastrously awry to the elation of a great play well told and the comic and nostalgic season close.
