Best Cabaret

Jacques Brel is about roses and wine, nostalgia, love, and bright, toe-tapping songs. But there is also a sense of bitter world-weariness to Jacques Brel's music, which was brought to life by three talented musicians and four superb performers, including singer Erica Sarzin-Borrillo. Sarzin-Borrillo is a unique stage presence, lacquered...

Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris

BEST SEASON FOR AN ACTRESS

Erica Sarzin Borrillo

It's a telling comment on the shortage of roles for women that almost no local actress has worked in more than one or two productions this year, but Erica Sarzin-Borrillo made her two appearances -- in Poignant Irritations at the Mizel Center and A Delicate Balance at Germinal Stage Denver...

BEST PLAY BY A LOCAL PLAYWRIGHT

Poignant Irritations Melissa Lucero McCarl

Commissioned to create a play about Gertrude Stein for the Mizel Center for Arts and Culture, McCarl came up with this fractured, episodic meditation on Stein's art and relationship with the faithful Alice B. Toklas. Each scene was given a semi-nonsensical title -- "Scene Sic Tea Nine: Definition of a...

Review: Death Takes a Holiday Leaves Us in Limbo at the Arvada Center

5 months ago by Juliet Wittman
“Death takes a holiday” is one of those wise, cynical, darkly funny old-European concepts that should yield rich fictional results, both comic and philosophical. The idea, which got its start in a 1924 play by Italian Alberto Casella, is that Death decides to take a break from collecting souls to...

Review: Relatively Speaking Brings Early Ayckbourn to Germinal Stage

1 year ago by Juliet Wittman
The witty, surprising dialogue is as tangled and twisty, as continually knotting and unfurling, as a ball of wool between the paws of a kitten.

Bitter, frustrated love earns a rousing ovation in Germinal's newest play

3 years ago by Juliet Wittman
At the end of Long Day's Journey Into Night, the audience members at Germinal Stage did something I've never seen at that theater: They stood up and applauded. It's not that Germinal hasn't staged excellent works in the past — works worthy of a standing ovation. It's just that audiences...

Cubist Twosome

Pigeons on the grass, alas. -- Gertrude Stein It is neither just nor accurate to connect the word alas with pigeons. Pigeons are definitely not alas. They have nothing to do with alas and they have nothing to do with hooray (not even when you tie red, white, and blue...

The cast shines in Curious Theatre's strong production of Circle Mirror Transformation

6 years ago by Juliet Wittman
What a lark! What a plunge!" thinks Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway as she steps exuberantly into her day, and that's pretty much what I felt walking out of Curious Theatre after Annie Baker's Circle Mirror Transformation. The play is just so sweet, smart, honest and touching, such an absolutely delightful...
