Weekend foreCAST: Avenue, Edge 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.

 The B-Team, Avenue, Theater, Theatre

HIS CHOICE: The B-Team at The Avenue

We’ve all heard of horror comedies. Well, The Avenue is offering us a terror comedy in The B-Team. No, not as in even more terrifying, as in terrorists. This irreverent comedy of errors (chock full of incompetent would-be martyrs) is sure to have you checking around you to see if it’s OK to laugh, and then deciding yes, absolutely.

Speed the Plow, Edge, Theater, Theatre, Denver, Reviews

HER CHOICE: Speed-the-Plow at Edge Theatre Company

Speed the Plow is some of the best of David Mamet representing some of the worst of human nature. Mamet’s satire of Hollywood and the business behind American movies is sure to grab you and take off into a world of cursing slimeballs without asking your permission. If you like your theatre (relatively) modern, raw, and potentially offensive, this’ll be your best bet.

Not to be missed: Avenue Q by Denver Center Attractions

Avenue Q, National Tour, Denver Center, Theatre, Theater, ReviewsThe premise behind Avenue Q is so clever that you are at once amazed that anyone thought of it and ashamed that you didn’t think of it first. You know the cheery world of Sesame Street, where everyday problems are solved with a smile by somewhat infuriating puppets? Well, what if instead those puppets were dealing with real life problems, like unemployment, racism and unsuccessful dating? Avenue Q won the Tony for best musical in 2004 (against Wicked, for goodness’ sake) and is sure to delight you with upbeat songs that punch a stone cold message, like “It Sucks to Be Me,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.”

One thought on “Weekend foreCAST: Avenue, Edge and DCA

  1. “Equus” at Vintage Theatre on 17th Ave. was absolutely STUNNING. It’s only showing a couple more weekends.
