Dava Sobel's And the Sun Stood Still shines at BETC

3 years ago by Juliet Wittman
The shining strength of Dava Sobel's And the Sun Stood Still — which is currently receiving its world premiere in Boulder — is that, at a time when the sciences have been so muddied by sloppy thinking, willful ignorance and financial pressure, it provides insight into the scientific process and...

It's no holds bard for I Hate Hamlet at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival

2 years ago by Juliet Wittman
I Hate Hamlet is a bit like the curate's egg: hilariously funny in parts and in others so idiotic that you're embarrassed for the actors. Why is the radiant Jamie Ann Romero wasting her talents wafting about as Deirdre, a stagestruck 29-year-old virgin who'll have sex with boyfriend Andrew only...

The Fantasticks? Not so fantastic.

6 years ago by Juliet Wittman
If "Try to Remember" doesn't move you, The Fantasticks plain isn't working, and though the song carries all kinds of memories for me, I couldn't summon up so much as a wistful thought hearing it sung in the Colorado Shakespeare Festival production. As written, the show is sweet, pretty, clever...

Richard II: The CSF goes deep with this power play

3 years ago by Juliet Wittman

Watching the Colorado Shakespeare Festival production, I remembered a historian's comment after a corpse assumed to be Richard III was found under a parking lot in Leicester. Richard's indefatigable defenders had hoped this corpse...

Wooed Awakening

18 years ago by Jim Lillie
Even though Love's Labour's Lost isn't one of William Shakespeare's best-known or best-loved plays, the lyrical, ornate story is yet another example of the sentient dramatist's incomparable ability to capture in verse the timeless truths about life's great sea changes. And while the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's visually stunning production of...

Money Talk

10 years ago by Juliet Wittman
Something is happening at the University of Delaware's theater program, from which the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has drawn a fair amount of its acting talent in the past few years. I imagine an elderly English actress running the place, dispensing advice on diction and elocution over china teacups. From the...

FOR YOUR AMUSEMENT

21 years ago by Michelle Johnston
The Wildcat, the rickety roller coaster at the old Elitch Gardens, was known for turning the world upside down--and for turning a few stomachs. Now the brewing storm over what to do with the amusement park's abandoned northwest Denver digs promises to do the same. The Denver City Council will...
