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: Noises Off at Colorado Shakespeare Festival
From the CSF website: Send a fourth-rate acting company on tour to perform an atrocious bedroom “comedy” — featuring gratuitous lingerie, uncooperative props, and a painful lack of talent — and what do you get? In the case of Michael Frayn’s classic play-within-a-play comedy, Noises Off, more laughter than you can shake a sardine at. As the company stumbles and fumbles through three progressively chaotic performances of “Nothing On,” you’ll see the players reveal themselves in all their bumbling, slapstick glory from onstage and backstage, as both ridiculous characters and inept performers.

HER CHOICE: Tommy Lee Jones Goes to the Opera Alone at Buntport
From the Buntport website:
Back for one weekend for Buntport’s fundraiser: A near life-size version of Tommy Lee Jones 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.
