Weekend foreCAST: Buntport, Candlelight and DCTC

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: Tommy Lee Jones Goes to Opera Alone at Buntport

From the Buntport website: For the third full-length production of our 11th Season, Buntport is trying something a little different, as we are wont to do. Join a near life-size version of Tommy Lee Jones as he waxes poetic about cowboy boots, his life as a movie star and his love of opera – particularly Puccini’s Turandot.

Operated by three Buntporters and voiced by a fourth, this look-alike of the beloved actor sits in a café, enjoying a good slice of pie, and takes you on a journey, aided only by his waitress and the odd salt shaker or two. A puppet show unlike any you have ever seen.

HER CHOICE: Oklahoma! by Candlelight Dinner Playhouse

From the Candlelight website: Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant, OKLAHOMA!

Don’t Forget: Great Wall Story by Denver Center Theatre Company

From the DCTC website: On a slow news day in 1899, three Denver reporters decide to dream up a hoax. Their story: the Great Wall of China is being torn down. Based on actual events, Lloyd Suh’s fast-paced, high-spirited play shows once again what a tangled web we weave.
