Weekend foreCAST: Hairspray, Twelfth Night, and This Week’s Theatre Openings

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: Hairspray at Midtown Arts Center

Hairspray, Midtown Arts Center, Denver, Theatre, TheaterFrom the Creede Rep website: Our 2011-2012 season concludes with the Northern Colorado Premiere of Hairspray, Broadway’s big fat smash hit. Audiences will journey back to 1960’s Baltimore and join our hefty heroine Tracy Turnblad, a big girl with big dreams and even bigger hair. She’ll do whatever it takes to claim a spot on a popular television dance show, and turns the town upside down in her efforts to racially integrate television. “You can’t stop the beat” with Hairspary, winner of 8 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical. Rated PG

HER CHOICE: Twelfth Night at Colorado Shakes

Twelfth Night, Colorado Shakespeare FestivalFrom the  Colorado Shakespeare website: A classic case of mistaken identity washes up on the shores of Illyria — known today as Albania — spawning comic antics and utter abandon. Having survived a shipwreck, Viola dresses as a boy to become the page of Duke Orsino. Though smitten by her new master, she must obey when he sends her to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf. Meanwhile, tricked into believing she shares his love, Olivia’s stuffy steward Malvolio hysterically humiliates himself to please her. This year’s production features a rich late 18th-century European design and setting.
