Chances are youre already somewhat familiar with the people featured in Denver Stories, an ongoing series in which Curious Theatre Company selects four Denver celebrities and writes and produces a ten-minute play about each. The beauty of it, though, is that youre likely to learn something you didnt expect like really didnt expect.
Last year, I did Adam Lerner, says Christy Mountour-Larson, Curious company member and longtime Denver Stories director. Hes the director of MCA Denver, of course, but a big part of his story is that hes a champion square dancer. So we ended up doing his as a musical that had a whole big square dance number in it. This year, shes directing Diva Television, the story of Charlie Price, who made his name as a big-deal, award-winning hairdresser and climbed to modest national fame as the runner-up (what is it with Denver and runners-up?) of Bravos Shear Genius. Montour-Larson cant give too much away, but she can say this: Hes very fun and very theatrical, so I wouldnt be surprised if he showed up for a cameo.
The lineup this year is great: In addition to Price, the show features bluesman Otis Taylor, restaurateur Paul Attardi and pioneering LoDo developer Dana Crawford, And if its not exactly cheap (tickets are $150 individual), its something youll never see again. The one and only performance ever is tonight at 6 p.m.; for more information, visit www.curioustheatre.org or call 303-623-0524
