Denver Center Theatre Company
People get lazy in the summertime, but it's time to wake up: The fall theater season is only weeks away, and Denver Center Theatre Company tickets are now on sale. The focus may be on The Book of Mormon, which opens today in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, but when Mormon leaves, the DCTC season will just be getting under way.
What could you see? Standouts include world premiere productions of Sense & Sensibility: The Musical, Ed, Downloaded and Grace, Or The Art Of Climbing, all originally workshopped plays at the DCTC's New Play Summit. The Three Musketeers promises to be a crowd-pleaser, as does Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet; the Pulitzer-nominated Broadway drama Other Desert Cities brings some punch to the lineup next spring.
