Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Submitted by Jacqueline Wakeen on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 12:37pm

WASP takes a new form in George and Martha. This upper-class couple invite a new professor and his young wife over for dinner. Throughout the evening, George and Martha reveal the tempestuous truth under their shiny veneer, verbally and physically abusing each other while the younger couple suffer silently on. Much like Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, this play confronts the dysfunction of wealthy socialites whose power and money does little to buy them peace, freedom, or a foundation in reality. Thu-Sat, 7:30 p.m.

 

Dictators Unite!

Submitted by Caroline Padden on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 11:06am

Take advantage of this special gathering and down all three dictators at once. Avery Brewing Company produces a unique series of seasonal craft brews—the Dictator Series—featuring the Maharaja (imperial IPA), the Kaiser (imperial Oktoberfest), and the Czar (imperial stout). Typically the dictators emerge one at a time; this annual meeting provides a unique opportunity to try all three at once. Dictators will convene across the country; find them locally at Boulder's Avery's Tap House and the West End Tavern, or Denver's Euclid Hall. Wed 7-9 pm.

 

A Journey of the Human Spirit

Submitted by Jacqueline Wakeen on Tue, 11/27/2012 - 4:35pm

Eastern Europe's Jewish roots have a harrowing history, but this three-part production - music, opera, and ballet—adds color to what is often remembered only as a dark time. Klezmer music brings back the vibrant, pre-Holocaust Jewish culture, followed by the opera, which was written by and for concentration camp prisoners to relieve their suffering. The new ballet, From Darkness to Light, reflects a time of difficult revitalization following the genocide. Wed-Thu 7:30 p.m.
