Weekend foreCAST – Spotlight, Equinox and DCA

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: Harvey at Spotlight

Spotlight, Denver, theatre, theater Harvey, written by Mary Chase, won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1945. Those of you who saw the movie Donnie Darko should be familiar with the theatrical device of a tall imaginary rabbit, but in Harvey, the central character gladly introduces Harvey (the rabbit) to everyone he meets, causing a referal to a mental hospital. The play questions the definition of delusion and whether we should sanitize and “fix” everyone who behaves a bit differently.

HER CHOICE: Stop Kiss at Equinox

Equinox, Denver, theatre, theaterStop Kiss, by Diana Son, is a modern drama that examines the serious fall-out of a same-sex public display of affection. The material is unfortunately relevant more than ten years after it was written. Deeply emotional and passionate, Stop Kiss provides a rare opportunity for raw and touching acting performances. We look forward to seeing what Equinox does with this dramatic vehicle.

Not to be missed: The Aluminum Show at Denver CenterDCPA, DCA, Aluminum Show, Denver, theatre, theater

The Aluminum Show is a truly original stage experience, a playful and humorous dance and performance piece that centers around one specific material – Aluminum. Foil, balls, cans, rings, tubes –you dream of it and it’s used in this show. The show tells the story of a young machine in search of its parents, kind of like an industrial Finding Nemo. This will likely be one of the most visually stunning things you see all year. Three performances only!
