You know I sometimes wonder why some performances whether it be a play, or musical only last for such a short amount of time compared to others. Some productions can be so close to pure perfection but last only for a one to two night run.
Then again, this can also keep a piece fresh and unique while allowing many more stories that sometimes don't always make it to the stage to be told. Maybe that is one trait I love so much about Colorado theatre. There are so many innovative minds working hard to ensure that some voices of a story are told.
This is where Stories on Stage comes in. Now I have heard of their productions over the past three years of living here in Denver, however I sadly have not been able to make my way over to view their work. Thankfully though that is about to change.
On Saturday, October 13th, Stories on Stage will be bringing to life a work known as, "Dear Elizabeth," at the Nomad Playhouse in Boulder. Which I thankfully will be attending.
The play is interesting to say the least, the story focuses on the corresponding letters between poets Elizabeth Bishop and Robert Lowell, and their lives in between.
Staring Emily Paton Davies and Sam Gregory, I truly believe this is going to an experience and performance that I will be able to talk about for a long time and am looking for to do so.
We see Dear Elizabeth at The Nomad Playhouse this Saturday at 7:30 pm
