Of the shows opening this weekend, these are the ones we want to see. These could be the best shows of the year or these shows could end up being terrible. As always we encourage you to chime in with your thoughts on our list and what shows you are seeing this weekend.
This show takes us on a trip through memories as we watch four generations of one family and the social and political upheavals that intertwined with their everyday lives. DCTC has brought in a lot of familiar faces this season, including Meghan Wolf and John Hutton from last year’s production of Othello (which we thoroughly enjoyed) for this production. With such capable talent leading the way, this theatrical adaptation of Isabel Allende’s bestseller of the same name is sure to be a rousing and affective piece.
The House of the Spirits runs September 17- October 23 at the Space Theatre at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Click the poster above for tickets and more information.
The Denver Vic has decided to kick-off their 2010/2011 “Irish” season with a work by Marina Carr, one of Ireland’s most celebrated modern writers. Set in a small provincial town in Ireland, Woman and Scarecrow shows us a woman on her deathbed mulling over a half-lived life. Although plenty of serious philosophical questions are discuss, there is a certain dark comedy to the piece.
Woman and Scarecrow runs September 24- October 30 at the Denver Victorian Playhouse. Click the poster above for tickets and more information.
