Weekend foreCAST – Afterthought, Candlelight 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: The Wiz at Afterthought 

From the Afterthought website: The New Musical Version of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. Book by William F. Brown. Music and Lyrics by Charlie Smalls.

Dorothy’s adventures in the Land of Oz have been set to music in a dazzling, lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul music. Everybody knows the story, but now it’s a new fantasy for today– mysterious, opulent and fanciful.

HER CHOICE: Annie Warbucks at Candlelight

From the Candlelight website: The world’s favorite orphan returns in ANNIE WARBUCKS, the sequel to the 1977 Tony Award-winning hit ANNIE, based on Harold Gray’s ‘Little Orphan Annie’ comic strip. Written by the same creative team behind the original, ANNIE WARBUCKS features a book by Thomas Meehan, music by Charles Strouse, and lyrics by Martin Charnin and picks up exactly were ANNIE left off, Christmas morning, 1933. New York Magazine called it “Surefire family fun” while the New York Times wrote “full of peppy melodies and plenty of laughs, ANNIE WARBUCKS is one of the composer’s best” and The New York Daily News said “ANNIE WARBUCKS is an enormously entertaining evening.”

NOT TO BE MISSED: Les Miserables by Denver Center Attractions

From the DCA website: Cameron Mackintosh presents a brand new 25th anniversary production of Boublil & Schönberg’s legendary musical, Les Miserables, with glorious new staging and spectacular re-imagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo. This new production has already been acclaimed by critics, fans and new audiences and is breaking box office records wherever it goes. The London Times hails the new show “a five star hit, astonishingly powerful and as good as the original.” The Western Mailsays “an outstanding success – the best version yet.”
