All art is subjective, which makes interpretations and responses to art as important as the intentions of the artist. He Said/She Said Critiques strives to bring more points of view to the table as we review and discuss community and professional theatre in the greater Denver area, and even occasionally reviews of shows seen in San Francisco, L.A., and on Broadway. He Said/She Said Critiques will provide balanced reviews of local productions, in the form of a dialogue that represents his and hers perspectives. We hope that by starting a dialogue on our page, we can spark a discussion that lasts far after the curtain comes down.
Reviews will always be the focus of our site, but we also provide: theatre news (local and otherwise), local audition notices, information regarding openings, music, videos, etc. We hope to provide you with the best heads-up you can get about anything theatre related in order to keep you connected to the rich theatre community in Denver and beyond.
