Weekend foreCAST: Aurora Fox, Firehouse and DCTC

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: While We Were Bowling at The Aurora Fox

Aurora Fox Denver theatre theater He Said She SaidFrom the Aurora Fox website: A coming-of-age comedy told through the eyes and experience of 17-year-old Lydia. However, While We Were Bowling is not simply about the experiences of one quirky family. It’s about more than Buffalo and bowling, too. It’s about the evolution of attitudes and awareness that came during the shift between the ’50s and ’60s; how one led up to the other and about how very different the two decades were.

HER CHOICE: Cliffhanger by Firehouse

Firehouse John Hand Denver theater theatreFrom the Firehouse Website: After years of teaching philosophy at a small western college, Professor Henry Lowenthal and his wife Polly eagerly await the announcement of Henry’s appointment to an endowed chair in his department. Things take a drastic turn when Edith, Henry’s vindictive protégé, devastates him with her plans to ruin any chance of his promotion. After pleading and rationalizing, Henry responds to Edith in a “bust” full of rage. This violent action lead Henry and Polly down a precarious path as they strive to determine what choices will result in the greater good. Filled with black comedy, double cross, and murder, Cliffhanger is a tongue-in-cheek academic thriller that will put notions of right and wrong into hilarious perspective.

Not to be missed: Superior Donuts at DCTC

DCTC Denver theatre theater Space He Said She SaidFrom the DCTC website: Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tracy Letts (August Osage County) tells the tough but tender story of a fading, family-owned donut shop. Arthur, its aging proprietor who is content to reminisce about the good ol’ days, hires a young, African-American assistant bursting with ideas for healthy menu options, hopeful about an unpublished novel and burdened by unpaid gambling debts. Superior Donuts affectionately explores our roots, the need to embrace change and the redemptive power of friendship.
