A First Time for Everything

It’s an experience that’s memorable for few, yet one that few will ever forget: the first time. Initially a website (www.myfirsttime.com) and then an off-Broadway production based on stories culled from the website, My First Time traffics in tales of virginity lost — and now, for the “first time” (sorry), it comes to Colorado, to the Nonesuch Theater in Fort Collins.

Featuring a minimalist set design of four bar stools and a slide show (and, no, the slides are not pornographic), the basic performance has actors using a script as a guideline that weaves in their own personal first-time stories — and a few from the audience — along the way. It’s a little offbeat, says producer and Nonesuch part owner Nick Turner, but it’s nothing too avant-garde. Turner emphasizes that the theater takes pains to create a safe environment: “It really fits what we’re trying to do with Nonesuch, which is kind of provocative, but also interesting. And it is. It’s sexy and funny and heartwarming — and real.”

Performance are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays at Nonesuch, 216 Pine Street in Old Town Fort Collins, through October 30; admission runs from $15 to $20. For information, go to www.nonesuchtheater.com or call 970-224-0444.
Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 15. Continues through Nov. 20, 2010
