Weekend foreCAST – Longmont Theatre Company and Candlelight Dinner Playhouse

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.


HIS CHOICE: Rabbit Hole at Longmont Theatre Co.

I saw the original cast on Broadway, including Cynthia Nixon who won the Tony that year for Best Actress, and loved this Pulitzer Prize winning script by David Lindsay-Abaire. There is currently a movie adaptation set to release starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. Centering around a family that has suffered a terrible loss, the story can be touching, funny, and heart-wrenching when done right. Longmont probably won’t have the impressive set with multiple sections of rotating circles that Broadway had, but as long as the story is told well this play can be amazing and a sure fire winner.

HER CHOICE: The Will Rogers Follies at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse

The Will Rogers’ Follies is a rare blend of Ziegfield Follies-style entertainment and a compelling historical story. The show tells the story of the life of Will Rogers, whose celebrity as a cowboy and comedian earned him top billing on the Vaudeville circuits and the title of Oklahoma’s favorite son. With plenty of opportunities for the lavish pageantry of the Follies juxtaposed with Rogers’ charming corn-fed demeanor, in my experience the show just flies by!

One thought on “Weekend foreCAST – Longmont Theatre Company and Candlelight Dinner Playhouse

  1. I saw FOLLIES and to be terribly honest it was only mediocre at best. The food was great, the service terrific but aside from that i was dissatisfied. The actor playing Will seemed wrong for the role. I think in general the casting was only meh. I think many of the newer smaller companies have a tendency to cast themselves in roles that aren’t necessarily a good fit. Gravity Defied has also done so, along with Vintage Theatre. It’s not always bad but it looks bad in my opinion. But you know what they say about opinions…
