Denver's Dangerous Theatre lives up to its name, staging edgy and sometimes kinky theater of the sort we don't often see in this town. And the current show, Jonathan Vick's murky psychodrama Comfort in the Arms of the Damned, offers proof of that. But DDT's guiding force, Winnie Wenglewick, wants to know why more people haven't seen the production.
In hopes of remedying the situation, Wenglewick has been strutting her stuff for Denver Arts Week. The troupe performed for free over the weekend at the McNichols Building, and it will again at 7 p.m. tonight, with an industry-night edition of of Comfort. It's the story of a disturbed young man with a monster in his closet and a chorus of key women in his life. A basket will be passed for donations.
Wenglewick also recently announced that DDT ticket prices will be dropped to $10 for all shows, including a special Thursday-night Chocolate Date Night performance with a chocolate dessert bar and hard cider on November 8, and again on November 9, when playwright Vick will be present for a talkback. Comfort in the Arms of the Damned continues weekends through November 17; visit DDT online or call 720-233-4703 for tickets and information.
