Weekend foreCAST- Boulder Ensemble Theatre, Vintage, and Upstart Crow

Denver, Theatre, Reviews 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: Crime and Punishment at Boulder Ensemble Theatre

Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company, Crime and Punishment, Denver, TheatreBased on the infamous novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky, Crime and Punishment is the ultimate examination of whether the ends ever justify the means. Although there are more than 20 film adaptations of this classic story, this three-person theatrical adaptation by Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus has never been produced previously in the greater Denver area. This production by Boulder Ensemble Theatre promises to be a bit dark, but absolutely psychologically stunning, which is what all great theatre should be.

HER CHOICE: Equus at Vintage

Vintage Theatre Company, Equus, Denver, TheatreEquus, by Peter Shaffer, is one of my favorite pieces of theatre of all time. Using a psychiatrist as a story-telling device ensures that the play is deeply psychological, and allows the audience to oscillate between identification with the more rational viewpoint of the psychiatrist and the inconceivable viewpoint of his patient, who is treated after blinding six horses. In the careful hands of Craig A. Bond and the intimate space of the Vintage Theatre, we think this production will be  stunning, shocking, and thought-provoking.

Not to be missed: The Philanderer at Upstart Crow

Boulder's Upstart Crow Theatre Company, The Philanderer, Denver, TheatreUpstart Crow presents The Philanderer, by George Bernard Shaw. The Philanderer is one of Shaw’s less frequently produced plays, which comments on the influence of playwright Henrik Ibsen on society, especially on feminist views at that time. Like other works of Shaw, it is satirical in its dealings with piercing social issues. We are hopeful that Upstart Crow handles the piece with the balance it deserves!
