Colorado is not only the Cultural Capital of the Rocky Mountain West, it is regarded by many as the Cultural Capital of America. Consider this: in 2015 the National Endowment for the Arts ranked Colorado as top in the nation in terms of per capita attendance at museums, concert venues and theatres. What happened to change this Cow Town into a cultural mecca? In 1988, voters in the metro Denver area overwhelmingly approved a public funding model for the arts. Known as the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), this 1¢ on $10 sales tax is in large part responsible for the cultural renaissance in metro Denver. This fall, you will be asked to extend the SCFD through 2030, and we need your help. Our “Polar Bear tax” makes an enormous difference. It now distributes nearly $55 million to more than 275 organizations in the seven-county metro area. Your support has helped our cultural institutions create world-class experiences — from organizations large and small — that, in turn, are enjoyed by more than 14.2 million people each year. Now the envy of the nation, the SCFD means jobs, access, education and economic stimulation. Importantly, it means free days at our region’s leading cultural facilities, historic preservation of everything from dinosaurs to the Wild West, and field trips to museums and concerts. It also means enjoying one of more than 40 plays and musicals right here at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. We — nearly 300 organizations — gratefully acknowledge your support of the SCFD and the incredible impact one penny can make. This fall, we ask that you vote yes on SCFD and continue your support of the world’s best, most diverse and most welcoming experiences.

DCPA EDUCATION

DEVELOPING OUR FUTURE PLAYWRIGHTS

T

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ (DCPA) third annual Regional High School Playwriting Competition culminated June 17 with two free, fully-staged performances of playwright Kendra Knapp’s Sonder.  Last fall, DCPA Education staff members conducted 145 classroom workshops for 3,100 Colorado students. That resulted in 212 one-act play submissions from young writers all over the state. DCPA artistic, literary and educational professionals then blindly judged the submissions, selecting 10 semifinalists. Of those, three were selected to have their plays read by professional actors at the 2016 Colorado New Play Summit. They were: • Gabrielle Moore, D’Evlyn High School, Divinity of Hell • Jessica Wood, Denver Christian School, Dark River • Kendra Knapp, Valor Christian High School, Sonder Knapp was a top-10 finalist last year. This year, her newest play was singled out for full production. Sonder follows a community of young people who are seeking real connection, but from the safety and distance of the internet. DCPA Director of Education Allison Watrous said the purpose of the teen writing initiative is to advance literacy, creativity, writing and communication through playwriting. “This program is all about inspiring the passion of playwriting in the next generation of writers regardless of their career aspirations,” she said. Knapp, for example, is headed to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida where she will study aerospace engineering. “But I will probably still be writing, too,” Knapp said. The three finalists each receive a cash scholarship of $250. In addition, each teacher of the three finalists receives a $250 gift certificate for books, supplies or other teaching tools. At a time when much of the national theatre dialogue is focused on the lack of female representation, it was telling that all three of the student finalists are young women. “I think that‘s great, especially because it was picked blind,” said Wood. “We know we were not being picked just because we are women — we were picked because we have

talent, and we have abilities, and it’s great that the DCPA is helping us realize this.” Added Moore: “I really appreciate the DCPA for not feeling the need to fill a quota, and that we’re being appreciated for our talent, no matter what age or gender or background we come from.” Knapp says she’s used to facing prejudice as a woman, a Hispanic, a person of faith and a theatre kid. “I’m used to people meeting me and then having this taste in their mouth where they go, ‘You’re from a Christian school? And you’re into theatre?’ I’m used to that attitude. But then I come here to the Denver Center and they just say, “OK, let’s get to work.” And I’m like, “Wait, you’re not going to ask me about my political views? Where’s the interrogation?” Each finalist was mentored during the Colorado New Play Summit by a commissioned playwright with the DCPA Theatre Company. “Rogelio [Martinez] had some ideas and insights for the play that hadn’t been presented to me by any other voice,” said Knapp. “It’s just a really good feeling to get feedback from someone you know is established who says to you genuinely, ‘This is good.’ ” Submissions for the 2017 High School Playwriting Competition are accepted starting Oct 1.

ROLE REVERSAL IN FRANKENSTEIN BY JOHN MOORE

M

Illustration by Kyle Malone

Much has been made of the mirrored relationship between Man and Maker in Mary Shelley’s enduring Gothic classic, Frankenstein. Creator and Cadaver. Father and Son. Master and Slave. God and Man. The DCPA Theatre Company’s new staging explores a whole new and incendiary duality: Black and White. Frankenstein is, of course, the familiar story of the young science student who assembles a living being from parts of exhumed corpses. In 2011, London’s National Theatre did some Frankensteinlike reanimating of its own when it breathed astonishing new life into Shelley’s nearly 200-yearold horror story. Noted film director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting) and playwright Nick Dear had their two leading actors alternate nightly playing the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. Returning audiences not only got to consider how differently the two actors approached the same roles, they got to witness Father become Son. Master become Slave. Man become God. The National Theatre staging was a sensation. Now, five years later, the DCPA becomes the first theatre company in North America to revivify the London creation. Sam Buntrock, Director of the Denver production, and Producing Artistic Director Kent Thompson also will have their actors trade roles. But there’s more. At a time when racial tensions in America are at their highest levels in 40 years, acclaimed actors Sullivan Jones and Mark Junek have been hired to play Frankenstein and the creature. Jones is black. Junek is white. And Thompson knows that may take on added visual significance with today’s audiences, because one more vital relationship between the story’s two archetypal characters is dominance and submission. Thompson is often known to cast actors of color to play characters traditionally played by white actors. So that’s nothing new. But in a year of ever-escalating racial tension in America, yes, Thompson says, he is trying to make a statement. A bold one about “the complex ways people from different cultures and classes relate to one another,” Thompson said. “And I’m highlighting that by having actors of two different races switching in these two roles.” A notable departure from Shelley’s source novel is the newly adapted play’s primary focus on The Creature — grotesque as he is, and yet childlike in his innocence. The real horror of Shelley’s story is not those silly (and jettisoned) neck bolts made famous by Boris Karloff. It is the doctor’s cruel rejection of his bewildered creature and casting him out into a hostile world. Meeting with cruelty

10

wherever he goes, The Creature grows increasingly vengeful. And that all will inevitably look different to a contemporary audience depending on which performance they attend. And that’s OK, says Thompson. “I don't know that we’ll ever be a post-racial society,” he said. “But I hope one day we will be post-racist.” The supreme challenge of two actors having to bring two entire characters to life on alternating nights is that it affords a rich and rare creative opportunity for potential audiences. “In the original London production the reviewers and the audiences were fascinated at how differently they approached each character,” Thompson said. “They were not the exact same performance, and the dynamic between them changed.”

Producing Artistic Director Kent Thompson is trying to make a statement about “the complex ways people from different cultures and classes relate to one another. And I’m highlighting that by having actors of two different races switching in these two roles.” New York Times critic Ben Brantley found it thrilling to attend The National Theatre's Frankenstein on successive nights in London. “Watching each of those actors find their feet and test their body parts is such a dizzy high point that it can’t be topped,” he wrote. “And their approaches were just different enough to make you want to see both.” Those who see both Jones and Junek will see that Frankenstein continues to strike disturbingly urgent chords that go far beyond race and encompassing “otherness” of all kinds. “There are many other things that make The Creature scary,” said Thompson. “There’s his deformity. That he can’t talk. That he seems to be brutish.” “Otherness” tends to evoke ignorance, cruelty and fear, said Thompson, who is fascinated by what makes “otherness” frightening to other people in the first place, be it disability, skin color…or even a person’s presidential preference. “All of that fear multiplies once you start to consider race and culture and age and political opinions,” said Thompson. “It’s easy to demonize the person on the other side of an issue. That is going on all over America today. The challenge we are left is: ‘How do we stop demonizing each other?’” Thompson pointed out that the man in power in this scenario — the omnipotent doctor — may fall somewhere squarely on what we would call “the autism spectrum” today. “He’s a genius, but his ability to emotionally respond and psychologically understand the consequences of his actions has been thwarted,” Thompson said. “Yet, he holds the power to create life in his hands as surely as a gun would hold the power to end it.” But while the landmark London staging offered audiences a whole new way of looking at the Frankenstein myth — as will the DCPA’s team of designers and actors — “None of that profoundly changes the major theme of the piece,” Thompson said. Which is, essentially: “Is it even ethically appropriate for man to create life? I mean, once you start down that road, how do you stop?” John Moore is the DCPA’s Senior Arts Journalist.

COSTUME COLUMN The DCPA’s Costume Crafts Director Kevin Copenhaver is knee deep in necromancy preparing for the Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Frankenstein. Fresh off his Henry Award-winning costume designs from last season’s Sweeney Todd, Copenhaver is taking inspiration from elevated, haute couture fashion and the films of Guillermo del Toro as he prepares to dive into the world of Mary Shelley’s creature. “I always find myself gravitating back to the ‘bad boys of fashion,’” said Copenhaver. “I’m very inspired by Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. In their designs, the volume has been turned up to 14. It’s a highly theatrical haute couture.” As he creates his own Creature, Copenhaver is moving away from the nuts and bolts movie monster. Instead, he’s interested in exploring the “built-in fear of something alien, something that doesn’t look like you.” He’s currently playing around with contact lenses to find the striking yellow eyes described by Shelley in the novel. “When you think about the way the original story was conceived, this group of friends sitting around trying to one up each other by telling a ghost story or a scary tale, that alone gives you license to play and interpret,” said Copenhaver. This little scary tale is sure to send shivers up your spine.

DENVER FAVORITE GEOFFREY KENT DIRECTING AN ACT OF GOD BY JOHN MOORE

A “What’s joyful to me is that through the course of the play, we get to watch God learn something about himself — and that humanizes him.” —GEOFFREY KENT, DIRECTOR

An Act of God is a new comedy that imagines The Almighty is coming down to Earth to adapt the dusty 10 Commandments for these modern times. But because the very majesty of God might simply be too much for we mere mortals to handle, He takes on the far more approachable human form of a fabulously fun actor with just enough snark and charm. Imagine Jim Parsons or Sean Hayes — two popular TV sitcom actors who have played the role on Broadway. “Think of God as the perfect host of the perfect cocktail party…and he has the mic,” said Geoffrey Kent, a longtime actor and stage-combat expert who will be making his DCPA directorial debut when An Act of God premieres regionally at the Garner Galleria Theatre on October 15. Kent calls the show part stand-up comedy…and part “Oprah.” In An Act of God, Kent said, “We get to watch God appear before us as a reflection of who we are now.” And who are we now? “Oh, we can be kind of terrible sometimes, and we can also be wonderful,” Kent said with a laugh. “And the same thing can be said of God.” An Act of God, written by 13-time Emmy winner David Javerbaum of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show, is laugh-a-minute funny," Kent said. “I think it pokes fun at the theist and the atheist equally,” Kent said. “But a comedy can ask meaningful questions just as well as a drama can. What’s joyful to me is that through the course of the play, we get to watch God learn something about himself — and that humanizes him.” Kent is a Colorado native who attended Centaurus High School in Lafayette and the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. He is a self-made theatre man who debuted as an actor with the DCPA Theatre Company in Anthony Powell’s Hamlet in 2002. “I played Sailor No. 2,” said Kent. “And there was no Sailor No. 1. So basically I was Sailors No. 1 and No. 2 combined.” But Kent is used to combining job responsibilities. He started teaching classes with DCPA Education back in 1996, and he also is President of the Society of American Fight Directors — the largest organization of stage combatants in the world. He is resident fight director for both the DCPA Theatre Company and Colorado Shakespeare Festival, where this summer he directed a genderbending The Comedy of Errors and appeared as Iachimo in Cymbeline and Achilles in Troilus & Cressida. Next stop: Garner Galleria Theatre where he grew up attending long-running shows such as Always…Patsy Cline, Forever Plaid and I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. He'll be directing Wesley Taylor as God along with local favorites Steven Cole Hughes, Erik Sandvold and Steven J. Burge. “I never thought I would ever have an opportunity to direct a show at the Galleria Theatre,” Kent said, “and it’s thrilling.”

The Glass Menagerie is not Tennessee Williams’ first play. Nor his second. Not even his third. But it is an early play and the first one to provoke the kind of stir that awakens the public to the sense that they might be witnessing the birth of an important new playwright. Life does not often allow us to be so suddenly and miraculously aware of something big occurring. Because it is derived from his short story Portrait of a Girl in Glass, The Glass Menagerie is achingly autobiographical and remains Williams’ most confessional and poetic play. Structurally, it depicts the uneasy three-way tension among Tom (the Tennessee Williams stand-in), his mother Amanda Wingfield (based on Williams’ mother, Edwina, a flailing, aging Southern belle, abandoned by her husband to rear their two children alone), and Tom’s gentle but damaged sister Laura (based on Williams’ sister Rose). Tom adores Laura but is helpless to rehabilitate her (just as Williams was tormented by guilt over a disastrous lobotomy that doctors performed on Rose when she was barely in her 20s). Tom is the observer — the play’s narrator — who views this family triangle as the stone that keeps him tethered under water and unable to breathe. Amanda, a materfamilias in spite of herself, refuses to acknowledge her social and financial destitution or Laura’s physical deficiencies (a bad limp). She fantasizes about finding her a proper husband and counts on Tom to help her find one. Tom, meanwhile, is choking on the task — torn between his familial love for these women, while yearning to break loose. The 1944 original production, staged by Eddie Dowling and Margo Jones and featuring Laurette Taylor in a legendary turn as Amanda, caused a small earthquake during its Chicago debut. The wide-ranging enthusiasm surrounding it encouraged a March 1945 transfer to Broadway, where The New York Times’ Brooks Atkinson used two words that remain key to describing the play: “lovely and merciful.” Written in a fresh and freer lyrical style, Menagerie’s wistful tone and filmy quality inspired designer Jo Mielziner to also break out of the confines of theatrical realism for both the set and lighting of the Broadway version. Menagerie became an immediate hit and won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Best Play award of 1945. No one was more surprised than Williams who retained a tenuous (and diffident) relationship with success throughout his life. Ina Marlowe, the Menagerie’s director at The Denver Center, has her own memorable connection to the play. Two years out of grad school, she staged a sign-language version of it in a tiny theatre outside Chicago.


“I’m not saying there’s no pain, guilt at leaving Laura, frustration at the difficulty of communicating with his mother… There’s heartbreak everywhere…” —INA MARLOWE, DIRECTOR “Tom will not be in a Merchant Marine uniform,” she said. “There will be the clicking of a typewriter in the background to remind us he’s a writer telling the story of a family full of love, frustration and dreams — too much love in a sense — and all of them trying to escape their reality.” Williams, who had a compulsion to do both, needed to write the way other people need to drink. “He had to write,” Marlowe insisted, speaking of the blurred lines between Williams’ reality and the play. “He has to relive the experiences so as to be able to leave [his mother and sister]

knowing the meanness and pettiness will disappear and only beauty and truth will remain. He must see them as iconic so he can leave them behind....” What about the pain this causes? “I’m not saying there’s no pain, Tom’s guilt at leaving Laura, his frustration at the difficulty of communicating with his mother. There’s heartbreak everywhere…. Even the gentleman-caller causes pain. But because Tom is a writer, he gets to the point where he must be able to leave if he’s to survive.” To achieve her goals in practical terms, Marlowe wanted things “the color of memory” — faded by time. The floor is lit from below, suggesting a vestigial reality. “Williams talks about the lighting as an El Greco lighting, almost an interior light, a spiritual illumination.” Laura’s glass animals are suspended in space. “She is, in effect, enveloped by them whenever she enters [the menagerie] to pick one up. They’re her escape — they and her father’s phonograph. Tom has his writing, Amanda has her memories of those 17 gentleman-callers…” Dissatisfied with the way the presence of the missing Dad too often is handled, Marlowe made sure his portrait would be prominent. “The place is haunted by the people who have left,” she said. “Loneliness inhabits the space between the characters. “I want to create memory with clean, simple images. This play is so strong that no matter what twist or concept you place on it, it teaches you something about all relationships. I feel fortunate to be involved with a piece of literature that brings up such a well of emotions — so delicate, so human, so deep, so universal.” Sylvie Drake was Director of Media Relations & Publications for The Denver Center for the Performing Arts 1994-2014. She is a former theatre critic and columnist for the Los Angeles Times and current contributor to culturalweekly.com.

Finding Neverland, Original Broadway Cast, Laura Michelle Kelly, photo by Carol Rosegg

“I love plays of language and character,” she said on the phone from her home in Conifer. “I’ve taught Williams, read him, staged him, seen the films. When I researched Menagerie, I read both published versions — the New Directions and the Dramatists Play Service.” In order to deliver the dreaminess that Williams had in mind, Marlowe eliminated the script’s cluttering screens and scrims in favor of an upto-date stagecraft that didn’t even exist in the 1940s.

COMING UP FROM BROADWAY:

FINDING NEVERLAND Peter Pan continues to fly high in our collective pop-culture consciousness, says Finding Neverland co-composer Eliot Kennedy, because he’s taken wing inside our DNA. Playwright J.M. Barrie may have imagined Peter Pan a century ago, Kennedy said, “but it remains such a young story. It’s all about youth and young energy.” The story of Peter Pan, Director Diane Paulus adds, is a call to anyone of any age to ask themselves: “When do we wake up and live the life that we know we need to live — not the life we think we should be living?” That, she said, is the story of Finding Neverland (playing The Buell Dec 20-Jan 1). The innovative Broadway musical is based on the 2004 Oscar-winning film of the same name. The story follows Barrie as he summons the courage to become the writer — and the man — he yearns to be. Barrie finds his inspiration when he meets a widow and her four young sons who inspire him to conjure the magical world of Neverland. Paulus believes the new musical is “a complete love letter to the theatre.” She cites a line from the show Captain Hook says to Barrie himself: “Go back to being what everyone expects you to be. Or you can find the courage to…write your own story.”

Following that exceptional second run on Broadway, I am incredibly proud to be sharing this milestone production with a national audience. This season marks Roundabout’s 50th Anniversary as a company, and in this historic year, I cannot think of a better production with which to share our work and mission with you. Since Roundabout’s founding, the company’s mission has been growing with our audience. Today, our seasons include expert revivals of rarely-seen classic plays like Machinal and The Winslow Boy, joyous reimaginings of timeless American musicals like Anything Goes and She Loves Me, and new works by the playwrights penning the classics of the future. Roundabout is committed to bringing thrilling, high-quality productions to each of our New York stages and to stages throughout the country. As a not-for-profit theatre, we are also dedicated to making these enduring stories accessible to the largest possible audience, through extensive education and audience development programs. Whether you have seen Roundabout’s work in New York or on the road (Cabaret marks our third national tour, following Twelve Angry Men and Anything Goes) or if you are joining us for the first time: thank you. Thank you for welcoming us to your theatre and for being a part of our 50th year. I hope you will visit us the next time you are in New York City, or online at RoundaboutTheatre.org. We are thrilled to continue growing our Roundabout family and to celebrate five decades of extraordinary productions and performances with you. Enjoy the show!

Sincerely, Todd Haimes, Artistic Director

ROUNDABOUT THEATRE’S CABARET

Welcome to the Kit Kat Klub, and to John Kander, Fred Ebb, and Joe Masteroff’s seductive masterpiece of a musical, Cabaret. The production you will see today, brought to life by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall (one of the most gifted directorial teams in the business), first slinked onto the Roundabout stage in 1998. The show presented a dark and dazzling vision for the iconic musical, stripping away showbiz sheen and sparkle to reveal an unadorned, visceral core: in the jagged choreography and raw sensuality of this production, we find a story both stark in its judgment and mesmerizing in its empathy. The 1998 production ran on Broadway until 2004 and proved to be a landmark moment in Roundabout’s history. In 2013, when conversations about a second revival began, I knew we had to take the opportunity to bring the musical to another generation of Broadway theatregoers. This is a production that deserves to be seen, whether for the first time or for a blissful encore.

Born in 1919 in Philadelphia, he had only one dream from infancy: to write for the theatre.

Before long he had three shows on Broadway bearing his name: The Warm Peninsula starring Julie Harris, and two musicals She Loves Me and Cabaret, for which he was the book writer. Thanks to indulgent parents, the New Dramatists, Hal Prince and many others, he is now retired and living in subdued luxury. JOHN KANDER (Music) & FRED EBB (Lyrics).

CABARET

A MIRROR OF ITS TIMES

A

American musicals hold a mirror up to our culture, hoping to reflect the issues of their day and the concerns of Americans. As a product of the tumultuous 1960s, the original Cabaret seduced and entertained while commenting on social issues and showing a frightening vision of our darkest potential. The generation reared in the conservative 1950s became the counterculture youth of the ’60s, and American society was divided by volatile conflicts. The African-American civil rights movement that began in the ’50s was growing to involve large-scale nonviolent protests and civil disobedience. The National Organization for Women (NOW) was formed in 1966 in order to help gain full participation for American women in mainstream society and gain the same freedoms and privileges as American men of that time. President Lyndon B. Johnson promoted reforms to extend human rights, education, economic opportunities, and health care. Not all Americans supported these reforms, and some reacted with alarming violence. A rise of Klu Klux Klan activity in the south instigated beatings, shootings, and lynchings of activists. Broadway was not immune to the cultural shocks of the

era. The Broadway and Times Square district saw a rise in prostitution, adult shops, and derelicts, which created a dangerous environment for theatergoing. Production costs were rising, and Broadway producers had to raise ticket prices: a top price of $12 in 1966 was the equivalent of $86 today. Prior to the rise of rock-and-roll in the mid-’50s, show tunes were considered popular music — what played on Broadway played on the radio. By the ’60s, an entire generation was listening to rock and pop instead of show music. Broadway needed to reinvent itself and find a new relevance, and visionary directors like Bob Fosse, Gower Champion, and the emerging Harold Prince became more prominent and, sometimes, more identified with shows than the songwriters. With the rise of the director came the “concept musical,” described by critic Martin Gottfried as a show whose music, lyrics, choreography, and scenes are woven together to create “a tapestry-like theme” or central metaphor, more important than plot. Gottfried identified West Side Story (1957), Gypsy (1959), and Fiddler on the Roof (1964), as the first important concept musicals, and Cabaret is an important title in this genre.


[Director Harold] Prince saw an opportunity to show these ties between racism in the U.S. and the rise of Nazism in the early 1930s through Cabaret. At his first rehearsal, Prince showed the cast a photograph of a group of angry young white men taunting a crowd off-camera. The cast assumed that it was a picture of Nazi youth harassing Jews; in fact, the picture was taken that year in Chicago, and the men were taunting black tenants of an integrated housing project. For a short time, Prince thought about ending the show with a film of the march on Selma, Alabama, though he abandoned that idea. The original idea for the show was to begin with a prologue of cabaretstyle songs to set the tone of Weimar Germany and then move into a straight play, but the team found that the songs worked better when distributed throughout the evening. As the show took shape as a more traditional musical, with some songs within book scenes, the cabaret world emerged as a central metaphor. The Brechtian device of songs that comment on the action rather than tell a story gave a central function to the Emcee character. Designer Boris Aronson conceived the production’s penultimate metaphor: a giant mirror center stage reflected the audience and reinforced the message that “it could happen here.” After previewing in Boston, the play opened in November 1966 to great acclaim. Cabaret won eight Tony Awards, including Best New Musical, Best Direction, Best Score, and Best Featured Actor for Joel Grey as the Emcee. The production ran nearly three years, for a total of 1165 performances, followed by international productions, a national tour, an Academy Awardwinning film, and Roundabout Theatre Company’s breakthrough revival in 1998. In its own day, and almost 50 years later, Cabaret validates the power of musical theatre to reflect a complicated world and the willingness of audiences to see ourselves in its mirror.

By the early 1960s Harold Prince had a proven reputation as a producer and was emerging as a formidable director. At this time Prince was taking on the challenge of turning the play I Am a Camera into a musical, but it was not until Prince received the first draft of the libretto from Joe Masteroff that he realized this was an opportunity to tell the story parallel to contemporary problems. Prince saw an opportunity to show these ties between racism in the U.S. and the rise of Nazism in the early 1930s through Cabaret. Prince brought on writing team John Kander (composer) and Fred Ebb (lyricist), whose first show, Flora the Red Menace, had premiered the year before. The team set out to create a show about civil rights and tell audiences that what happened in Germany could happen here. (What he might not have foreseen was that parallel remaining relevant 50 years later.)

COMING UP FROM BROADWAY:

HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH From being a cult musical to rocking out the Broadway stage, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is uniting audiences as diverse as its characters. The rock ’n’ roll opera follows Hedwig, an East German singer bouncing back from a botched transgender surgery who moves to America. While searching for fame and a truer sense of self, Hedwig fronts the band The Angry Inch. Born with a book by John Cameron Mitchell and music and lyrics by Stephen Trask, Hedwig and the Angry Inch premiered Off-Broadway in 1998 with Mitchell playing the lead role. The 1998 production won its creators an Obie Award and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical. After a film adaptation in 2001 and various on-stage tours worldwide, Hedwig hit Broadway in 2014, winning four Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical. Additionally, 2014’s production won Drama Desk Awards, Drama League Awards and Outer Critics Circle Awards. Now, the production is dusting off its heels and coming to rock The Buell Theatre Dec 6-11.

ACCESS FOR EVERYONE

Closer to home, citizen support of the SCFD has enabled the DCPA to diversify its programming and welcome those who might not otherwise be able to attend. Among our many programs, some new and expanded examples include:

DCPACCESS

$10 tickets to Theatre Company productions and occasional discounts to Broadway and Cabaret

KIDS NIGHT ON BROADWAY

Buy one adult, get one child free at select Broadway tours

STUDENT RUSH

I

In 1988, citizens of the metro area voted to tax themselves 1¢ on $10. The goal? To ensure broad access to our area’s incredible assortment of cultural opportunities. That was the beginning of what has become the nation’s strongest example of public funding for the arts. The Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) now draws in nearly $55 million a year — the equivalent of one third of the funds distributed by the National Endowment for the Arts — and, in turn, distributes those funds to 275 organizations throughout the seven-county metro area. But did it achieve its goal of providing access to our ever-growing community? The answer is simple — yes. In the most recent Economic Impact Study conducted by the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (watch for a new report to be released October 5), 14.2 million people participated in the arts, of which nearly 10 million admissions were free or discounted. And that level of engagement places Colorado at the top of the list for per capita attendance at museums, concert venues and theatres in the nation.

MILLENNIAL INITIATIVE

WOMEN’S VOICES FUND

ACCESSIBILITY SERVICES

Assistive listening devices, open captioned and signed performances, occasional tactile tours, large-print and Braille programs This fall, the SCFD is up for renewal. When you are asked to cast your vote, we hope that your answer is simple — Yes, I want to extend the SCFD. Yes, I want to preserve these opportunities. And yes, I want to protect Colorado’s culture for years to come.

CRAFTING BALANCED, QUALITY WINES IN THE HEART OF SONOMA COUNTY Crafting balanced, quality wines for every wine lover. Clos Du Bois has partnered with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts for many years. We truly believe that wine and the arts go hand in hand. Both create an individual and unique experience for all to enjoy. In 1974, Frank Woods founded Clos du Bois with a vision of blending fine French winemaking techniques with the best Sonoma County grapes to craft a range of balanced, approachable wines. Year after year, our wines have been recognized by both wine critics and wine lovers. Just over ten years later, in 1986, Wine Spectator named Clos du Bois “California’s best kept secret,” confirming our place as one of Sonoma County’s premier wineries. Today, we continue to create approachable, elegant wines, from everyday favorites to small-production jewels, always with Frank Woods’ vision as our guide.

Sustainability is a way of life Sustainability means different things to different people, but at Clos du Bois, it’s part and parcel of who we are. Our commitment to sustainability is what has allowed us to thrive for more than 40 years. And it’s what will help us continue to craft quality Sonoma County wines for many vintages to come.
