Weekend foreCAST: Completely Hollywood, Next to Normal 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: Completely Hollywood at Backstage Theatre Company

From the Backstage Theatre websiteJust when you thought it was safe to go back into the theatre… Seth, Dustin and Chris – that uproarious trio from “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” – boldly go where few would dare: Tinseltown.

These bad boys of abridgment take on America’s largest cultural and economic export (well, except for weapons) in this seriously silly showbiz satire. Giving Hollywood more than just a nip and tuck, the Shakespeare boys cut through the clutter of celluloid to condense 186 of the greatest films of all time into 97 minutes.

Enjoy film spoofs, wickedly horrendous star impersonations, and a complete compilation of classic cinematic cliches – plus a few brand new cliches they just made up.

HER CHOICE: Next to Normal at Little Theatre of the Rockies

From the Little Theatre of the Rockies website: With a thrilling contemporary score, Next to Normal is an emotional powerhouse of a musical about a family trying to take care of themselves and each other. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize and three Tony Awards, Next to Normal is “A Brave, Breathtaking Musical” (NY Times) that the Washington Post calls “The Future of American Musicals!” With provocative lyrics and an electrifying score, Next to Normal shows how far parents will go to keep their family’s world intact.Next To Normal is sure to be a “must see” this summer!
