Boulder Arts Week will bring bold fare to venues around that town this weekend, from a homegrown, one-man tour de force at the Dairy Center for the Arts to a complex and completely original performance-in-progress at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. Meanwhile, Town Hall in Littleton just wants to have fun — with a retro prom-night musical. Keep reading for the details.

Irish playwright Enda Walsh’s Misterman, a one-man show from the Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts, helps kick off Boulder Arts Week with a short run at the Dairy Center. Actor Craig MacArthur carries the show about an evangelist consumed with saving the sinful village of Inishfree, but gets help from a couple of famous voices in the shadows: Academy Award-winner Olympia Dukakis, who voices the role of “Mammy,” and veteran Colorado actor John Ashton, who speaks for “Mr. McAnerny.” Every performance will end with a talkback; after its Boulder run, the production will head to New York this fall.

Town Hall celebrates spring with a memory-lane musical revue and off-Broadway hit set somewhere in America at the 1958 Springfield High School prom.
