Curious Theatre has always tried to tell stories that get people thinking, says spokeswoman Tonya Malik, and this Denver Stories was born out of a desire to come up with a fundraiser that wasnt the same old fancy dinner you spend a lot of money for, but something Curious-centric.
The coolest thing about this is were all people who have lived in Denver for a long time, and there arent that many secrets about us, Rivers says. But these plays take one moment of your life and highlight it, and I think for all of us, theres probably one moment the public isnt aware of. The guest celebrities not only inspired, but co-authored their stories, and Rivers says he plans to make a brief appearance on stage brief because he wants to leave the acting to the professionals.
Denver Stories begins at 6 p.m. at Curious, 1080 Acoma Street, with a cocktail party catered by Tenenbaum. Tickets are $150. For information, go to www.curioustheatre.org or call the box office at 303-623-0524.
