Sense & Sensibility

    When I think of Jane Austin, I will admit Sense and Sensibility, isn’t the first story that appears within my head. As a matter of fact the only time I have read this tale was way back in high school, for an english course that I really don’t remember. With that being said, strangely enough I am very excited to be seeing the play adaptation that is premiering at the Arvada Center on January 26th. 

    This production will be performed by The Arvada Center’s Black Box Respiratory Company, a group of very multitalented actors who are not only taking on multiple roles in  this play, but are also performing in two or all of the upcoming plays within this season. 

    That is a hard task within itself and I would be lying if I said I am not curious to see them perform. I love watching actors change their entire body language and appearance, shapeshifting into a completely different person, with a different personality, or even an entirely different being. It shows the complexity and skills these actors have trained to the best of their abilities. 

     It isn’t hard to see that I a very excited to see this production, especially considering this will be a comedy. Like many people I am complete sucker for them, I adore watching comedic timing and seeing how the audience will respond. Having read up on this production, it will be nice to see what risks and twists have they have added to this story, and how quick they will be able to pull the audience, including myself in Austin’s world. 

 

    We see Sense and Sensibility on January 26th, at the Arvada Center at 7:30pm.

Mining for Gold

Later next week we are going to have the pleasure of experiencing Josh Hartwell's version of A Christmas Carol at Miner's Alley Playhouse in Golden, CO. This will be the second time I will have seen the show but the continual change that I have heard being described about the show has me excited. 

Seeing such a classic getting redone but also reworked is going to be worth the wait, and importantly worth the time for the creative team. With only 6 actors in the whole production things are going to get interesting, but also more exciting. The last time I saw this production (a more classical rendition I might add) was at the Guthrie in Minneapolis. Having a smaller setting I believe is going to be very very nice. 

We will be seeing A Christmas Carol Dec. 8th which runs until Dec. 23rd at The Miner's Alley Playhouse in Golden, CO.
