Welcome to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. We are so glad you’re here! This holiday season is a bit unusual for us. Our annual production of A Christmas Carol is on hiatus while the 40-year-old Stage Theatre is renovated. Plus two productions are not located under the glass canopy of the Arts Complex. Camp Christmas is Off-Center’s newest offsite, immersive experience. Located in The Hangar at Stanley Marketplace, this over-the-top holiday extravaganza showcases yuletide traditions of the past and present. Designed by local artist Lonnie Hanzon, Camp Christmas features built-in photo opportunities for the whole family and is sure to be Denver’s new favorite holiday experience. Across the street from the Arts Complex, our Education and Theatre Company production team is delighted to entertain tiny tots ages Pre-K through third grade with a musical adaptation of the beloved children’s book, Goodnight Moon. While Broadway delights audiences with the return of Jesus Christ Superstar and Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical, not everything is holiday fare. We’re presenting a one-night engagement of John Leguizamo in Latin History for Morons, Jimmy Buffett’s Escape to Margaritaville and the always unexpected antics of The Improvised Shakespeare Company®. Just because Dickens’ famous ghost story is taking a break does not mean our Theatre Company is resting on its laurels. Instead, we’re presenting Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night under the direction of our own Artistic Director, Chris Coleman. Plus we’re gearing up for two all-new productions just after the first of the year with twenty50 and You Lost Me. With so many activities, it’s hard to choose just one…so we hope you come for them all. Your support, both in person and through your generosity, makes the work on our stages, in our classrooms and throughout the community possible. As we reach the end of our calendar year, please consider a donation. Your gift can help us send a child to their very first performance at Goodnight Moon, place a chair in a renovated theatre in time for the return of A Christmas Carol next season, or make sure we can continue to attract top shows and talent from across the country. Thank you for being with us today. To you and yours, have a very happy holiday season. Warm regards,

Janice Sinden President & CEO

TWELFTH NIGHT

B Y S Y LV I E D R A K E

A

Among his many achievements, William Shakespeare is also known for something slightly less laudable: the habit of stealing and adapting plots rather than inventing them. It was a shortcut, practiced also by fellow playwrights. Why bother to invent when so many were there for the taking? It saved time and you could improve on them. Or not. When it came to characters and imagery though, Shakespeare excelled. And, as with the other playwrights of his day, his refashioned plots indulged in elaborate deceit and vindication in all its forms while his subplots usually involved comic rubes and fools who dispensed malapropisms and sly wisdom by the mouthful. His best comedies are the fuel of great fun, propelled by lust, swept away by giddy humor, always dabbling in music while devolving into repeated antics that lead to happy endings. Consider A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It and Twelfth Night. Check out the variations on favorite themes: lovers in distress, disguises, mistaken identities, soldiers and sages, sisters and brothers, lofty peers and silly peons — and, in The Comedy of Errors, more than one set of twins. Twelfth Night has all of these elements and, if not identical twins, then a brother and sister separated by shipwreck and reunited when, thanks to the sister’s decision to disguise as a man, the two are mistaken for one another and revealed to be who they really are. Joy ensues because in Shakespeare’s comedies, joy always ensues.

10

These are some of the reasons why Chris Coleman, the DCPA Theatre Company’s Artistic Director, not only chose to do Twelfth Night but also to direct it. “I knew I wanted Shakespeare to be part of this season,” he wrote in an informal exchange of emails. “Having the opportunity to continue exploring his work was one of the draws of this job. I also knew that our last outing was with Macbeth, so it made sense for it to be a comedy. Twelfth Night is among his very best writing in terms of fun of plot, richness of characters and delicious confusion of desire. “Everyone is falling for the ‘wrong’ person in this play. Some kind of desire gets awakened [that] is not aligned with the individuals’ sense of identity or history. The tension around that is very interesting, and very current. I also think there’s a great sense of music and mayhem in the piece that [is] fun to try and capture.” Music opens and ends the play, with plenty of room to add as much or as little of it as you wish, and mayhem influences all of the action in between. “There is both delightful humor and depth of feeling,” Coleman added. “It begins with heartache: Viola thinks her brother is drowned; Olivia grieves the loss of her father and brother; Orsino aches for Olivia’s love, which is scaldingly unreturned. The emotional layers feed the comedy, but also give it resonance.” Good point. The everpresent clowns in these comedies also have a serious function. They counteract the cloying

THE BREEZY ROMANCE OF


potential of all that unrequited loopy love. And the ragged bunch of hangers-on in Twelfth Night are at once more closely related to the primary characters and considerably more cruel than his usual clowns. The moocher, Sir Toby Belch, Olivia’s uncle or cousin (he’s mentioned as both), is a layabout in the household who has no trouble inviting her clown Feste and her attendant Fabian or his own nebbishy friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek to join him in abusing Olivia’s largesse. They’re a roguish crew, aided and abetted in their games by Maria, Olivia’s “gentlewoman,” an elevated title for a housekeeper with a sense of humor who’s the mastermind behind the mischief, especially the nasty prank they play on her stuck-up steward, Malvolio. The entire action takes place in a period Coleman loosely calls “Renaissanceish Mediterranean,” circa 1500, a decent match for Shakespeare’s Illyria, vaguely assumed to be Croatia’s enchanting Dalmatian coast. So the mood for romance is all there. In tune with our times, the cast is a stew of ethnicities, including four actors who also play musical instruments and several artists with lengthy ties to the Denver Center: Larry Hecht, Kim Staunton, Larry Paulsen, Rodney Lizcano and Sam Gregory. Stalwarts Charles MacLeod designed the lighting and Kevin Copenhaver the clothes.

Twelfth Night is among his very best writing in terms of fun of plot, richness of characters and delicious confusion of desire. — CHRIS COLEMAN, DIRECTOR

“My intentions with Shakespeare,” Coleman said, “are always to try and uncover the fundamentals of the language first: get to the heart of the sense of the language and why these humans need to speak these words. Then it’s about helping the actors fully inhabit the truth of the story’s circumstances and fully honor what the characters are up against.” A final footnote: Perhaps to make up for the thread of maliciousness in Sir Toby and friends or the mean trick played by them on the hapless Malvolio or perhaps simply because the words came to him at that moment, one of Shakespeare’s most astonishing rhymed couplets is in this play, only to go largely unheard. Why? Because the words are spoken by Antonio, a peripheral character, in the midst of a heated argument. In Nature there’s no blemish but the mind. None can be called deform’d but the unkind. Words to live by, yet their throwaway spot in the scheme of things underscores how guilelessly Shakespeare squandered his eloquence. There are almost no lines of his you can dissect that don’t possess pith or elegance. Which explains why, after more than 400 years, his works are still with us and likely to remain with us for another 400.

COSTUME COLUMN When DCPA Theatre Company Artistic Director Chris Coleman arrived in Denver, a member of his new staff asked him to describe his artistic tastes. One of the things he responded with: “Wouldn’t it be radical to set a Shakespeare play in Shakespearean times?” Following up on that promise, Twelfth Night (Coleman’s first presentation of Shakespeare at the DCPA) is set in roughly the same location and time period that the Bard intended. Ancient Illyria was located in modern-day Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina where trade routes from the Far East ended, making it a multicultural marketplace. It is fitting, then, that costume designer Kevin Copenhaver’s costumes are a melting pot themselves: “I’m borrowing a little Spanish influence, French influence, of course Italian,” with additional traces of Romani and German. Theatre Company regulars may recognize Copenhaver’s distinguishable work for its bold patterns, lush colors and exaggerated silhouettes. Now in his 30th season with the Theatre Company, he has designed such recognizable shows as A Christmas Carol, Crowns, Animal Crackers, Sweeney Todd, and The Who’s Tommy. After Coleman began conversations with Copenhaver about Twelfth Night, he used two words to describe Kevin’s aesthetic: “Renaissance Copenhaver.”

The first time Jimmy Buffett saw a rehearsal of Escape to Margaritaville, the new musical based on his songs, it was pretty obvious that he was having a good time. “He was smiling and laughing,” recalls Greg Garcia, co-writer of the musical’s book, who was sitting just in front of Buffett. “I kept looking back at him, and he was just loving it. Afterward, I go, ‘That’s the first Jimmy Buffett concert that you’ve ever been to, isn’t it?’ And he looked at me and smiled and said, ‘Yeah, man! I see what the fuss is all about!’” Of course, Escape to Margaritaville isn’t exactly a Jimmy Buffett concert. But its creators say that it does have a tropical party vibe similar to the festive mood at Buffett’s rollicking live shows. Like other so-called jukebox musicals, it takes a set of popular songs and constructs a story around them. Just as Mamma Mia! concocted a plot to connect the hits of Abba, this new show celebrates Buffett’s greatest hits while telling a romantic-comedic story — about a character who’s a bit like Buffett in his younger days as a busker singing songs on the beach. What’s the secret to making a jukebox musical feel more like a real musical, and not just a string of hit tunes? “Every song has to feel inevitable and necessary to the story,” says original Broadway director, Christopher Ashley. “Or it has to be such a pleasurable left turn that you say, ‘Wow, I didn’t see that coming, but I’m so happy about how they used that song.’ Nothing can ever feel shoehorned.” Ashley (who won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical for his work on Come From Away) is the artistic director at La Jolla Playhouse near San Diego, which staged the first production of Escape to Margaritaville in May 2017 before heading on to Broadway in February 2018. San Diego Union-Tribune critic James Hebert wrote that the show “delivers just about every bit of what the phrase ‘Jimmy Buffett musical’ promises, from the splashy colors to the steel-drum beats to the palm-fronded beach bar slinging fruity cocktails.” But he also noted that the musical smartly taps into “the undercurrent of wistfulness and regret that runs through even some of Buffett’s more upbeat story-songs.” The depth of those songs attracted Garcia and cowriter Mike O’Malley. The Emmy Award-winning Garcia, creator of television shows such as the TBS series The Guest Book, says he grew up listening to Buffett’s records. “I was always drawn to songs that told stories,” he says. “Jimmy’s songs, a lot of them tell stories. They have characters within them. Certainly, some of them also have a humorous vibe.” Garcia became something of a Parrothead, as Buffett fans are known, and Buffett later became a fan of Garcia’s NBC series My Name Is Earl. O’Malley — who starred in Garcia’s sitcom Yes, Dear from 2000 to 2006 — says listeners are attracted by the “spirit of fun” in Buffett’s songs. “But there’s also this real depth in other parts of his songs,” O’Malley observes. Buffett has an “ability to write songs about what people yearn for, what they regret in their own behavior, and what they strive for in friendships and relationships,” he says.


When Garcia and O’Malley started working on a script four years ago, they knew they’d have to include certain Buffett hits. “You don’t have to be a genius to figure out which ones have to be in it,” Garcia says. “Jimmy says there are ten songs he plays or gets killed.” Those include “Come Monday,” “Cheeseburger in Paradise” and, of course, Buffett’s breakthrough hit from 1977, “Margaritaville.” As Garcia explains, “It was pretty easy to compile the list. But then what do you do? You’ve got this big list of songs. How do you get them in? The trick for us was, we listened to the songs and we started creating characters based on the songs.” The central character they came up with is Tully, a bartender and singer at an island resort (played by Chris Clark). “A guy who lives on the beach,” Garcia says. “A carefree, fun-loving guy. He has relationships that last a week. But then somebody comes into his life that’s a little bit more of a challenge.” That somebody is Rachel, played by Sarah Hinrichsen. She’s “an ecological scientist who has a real career drive, and is not interested in hanging out and getting drunk,” Ashley says. “We created her as the un-Jimmy Buffett character.” And when these two characters fall in love, it pushes them to rethink their attitudes about life.

Buffett has an “ability to write songs about what people yearn for, what they regret in their own behavior, and what they strive for in friendships and relationships.” — MIKE O’MALLEY, CO-WRITER

“When I look at the TV shows that I do, there’s a theme of personal growth,” Garcia relates. “My Name Is Earl was about a guy who wanted to be a better person. And this is a show where you watch these two people help each other become better.” Buffett’s songs take on new meanings when we see these characters singing them. Now, they’re stories about these people. “‘Margaritaville’ is a great song if you’re not the person singing it,” O’Malley muses. “There’s great regret and sadness in that song. How did this woman get away? What did I do in terms of the choices that I made that caused me to be sitting here, wasting away in Margaritaville? When you put yourself in the point of view of a character singing that song, there can be a different emotion than when you’re just shouting it to the rooftops.” In addition to Buffett’s vibrant music, the show draws energy from the choreography of Kelly Devine, who worked with Ashley on the Tony-winning Broadway show Come From Away, and earned a Tony nomination herself. “The dance vocabulary is surprising and athletic and sexy and rock ’n’ roll and imaginative,” Ashley says. “We have real triple threats—people who really can act, really can sing, and really can dance.” The show’s creators often talked with Buffett, seeking his advice and feedback. Garcia says it’s been a “real thrill” to watch Buffett whenever he lights up with joy during a performance. “When you sit down to write the Jimmy Buffett musical — I’ll be honest with you — there’s really only one audience member I care about at the end of the day,” he says. “And it’s Jimmy Buffett.”

FUN FACTS FROM

WHO-VILLE

DR. SEUSS f Dr. Seuss was not a doctor. He briefly studied English literature at Oxford, but instead became a cartoonist. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by Dartmouth College. f Forty-four books by Dr. Seuss have been translated into 15+ languages. f He is the ninth-best-selling fiction author of all time — 650 million+ copies sold.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS f The book debuted in December 1957. f The Grinch turned green when he was animated in 1966. Originally, he was black and white with pink eyes. Rumor has it that the animator was inspired after he rented a car that was painted an ugly and unique shade of green. f Dr. Seuss wrote all of the lyrics to the songs in the TV special. f The Grinch was named the fifth-greatest cartoon character of all time by TV Guide in 2002.

Philip Huffman as The Grinch and the 2016 Touring Company of Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical.

DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL f The musical came to life in 1994 at the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis. f It appeared on Broadway in 2006, where it broke records during holiday season. f Max the Dog, who only had two lines in the TV special — “Yipee!” and “Raaahhh!” — now narrates this classic holiday tale for the whole family.

DR. SEUSS’ HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL

WHO’S WHO PHILIP HUFFMAN (The Grinch) I would like to thank all the incredibly strong women in my life that have made me into the person I am today. Their ability to continue to strive through constant adversity has been an inspiration to me throughout my life. Whether it was the struggle to survive the corporate climb, becoming a Forensic Psychologist, or raising such kind-hearted children, it has all been admirable. To thank all that have loved me, from my first kiss and to all the hearts that parted with our last goodbye. I take this moment to acknowledge the insurmountable impact you’ve had on me and thank you for such meaningful memories. I would also like to thank specifically my Gramcracker for all the love she sends, my mother for all the credit she takes, and all The Who’s down in Whoville for giving me something to loath.

SEUSS (Writer) Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. Dr. Seuss’s first children’s book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, changing the world of children’s literature forever. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, two Emmy awards and three Academy awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 books, many of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials and videos. His books include The Cat in the Hat, which infused 236 simple words with rhythm, rhyme and humor, and Green Eggs and Ham which used only 50 words. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues

to be the world’s best-selling author of children’s books. DR. SEUSS ENTERPRISES, L.P. is a leading children’s entertainment company focused on protecting Theodor Seuss Geisel’s (Dr. Seuss) legacy and thereby ensuring that each generation can experience the genius of Dr. Seuss. The company was established in 1993 and is based in San Diego, CA. Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ global endeavors complement Dr. Seuss’s iconic books and include films, TV shows, stage productions, exhibitions, digital media, licensed merchandise, and other strategic partnerships. Ted Geisel once said he never wanted to license his characters to anyone who would “round out the edges” – a guiding principle at Dr. Seuss Enterprises.

JOHN LEGUIZAMO ON LATIN HISTORY FOR ALL AMERICANS

John Leguizamo • Photo by Matthew Murphy 2017

BY JOHN MOORE

30 30

A

Actor John Leguizamo grew up in New York City a Colombian immigrant with very few pop-culture role models who looked like him: Ricky Ricardo in “I Love Lucy.” Speedy Gonzales. Freddie Prinze. “They were far and few between,” he said. “Then we had West Side Story, but I feel conflicted about that,” he added of the iconic gang musical that follows rumbling white and Puerto Rican gangs spinning and snapping and stabbing their way through the Upper West Side of Manhattan. “West Side Story was the only Latin representation we had in popular movies back then, but it was all based on very negative information,” he said. “And on the news, you saw yourself constantly portrayed very negatively. Our positive stories were never celebrated.” It was not until Leguizamo became a grown man that his research led him to great Latin writers such as Gabriel García Márquez, Roberto Bolaño, Isabel Allende, Pablo Neruda and others dating back to the 1800s. And that got him wondering what else he wasn’t taught in school about the contributions of Latin leaders, artists and soldiers throughout history. Leguizamo, an amorphous human encyclopedia who absorbs facts as easily as breathing, has since made himself an expert on the subject, and that has led to his latest one-man theatrical production. Latin History for Morons is not only playing in Denver, it was largely developed right here back in 2017. “Comedy Works was great for me because they gave me the opportunity to really workshop this show,” he said. “I went there for four nights doing two shows a night.” But it wasn’t standup comedy. “No, I just read to these poor people from my notes,” he said. “People in comedy clubs are not used to being read to. And it was a 2½ hour show. I think they were drunk out of their minds, because they just kept pouring the alcohol, and it was the longest show they’ve ever had.” But that was part of the genesis of a show that went on to Broadway and won a special 2018 Tony Award. “Denver people are the ones who helped me make this show,” he said, “and now I’m grateful that I can bring it back to them all polished and retooled.” Leguizamo was motivated to develop Latin History for Morons for his son, who was being bullied and racially profiled in his middle school not far from where Leguizamo was raised. Leguizamo also had grown up feeling othered and second-class, and he was done with that. “I was like, wait a minute. How is this possible with all these contributions from Latin people?” he said. “I wanted to give my son facts and information about Latin heroes to empower him.” But Leguizamo was the one who was changed. Or, as he put it: “Un-moronized.” “I was empowered. I was transformed,” he said. “It was like a domino effect. The information I found started to double and triple and quadruple. I couldn’t believe the incredible amount of Latin contributions to America and the world I found.

Redeem for Musicals • Plays • Classes Subscriptions • Venue Rentals “I started to feel like being Latin was a superpower.” Now Leguizamo is bringing his comic, kinetic, dizzying stage energy into a Denver classroom known as The Buell Theatre. And if he hadn’t already settled on such a provocative title, Leguizamo might have called his production Latin History for all Americans. “If we had a syllabus for this course, it would say that this is not the victor’s version of American history,” he said. “History should include all of the people who helped create America. It should include all of the Black, Latin and Native American contributions to the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the War of 1812. We were there. “That would be a great book, and then these Latinx kids in school would see themselves reflected back and they would feel different about themselves. They would feel like they could project themselves into the future in a successful way. When you don’t see yourself included in all this information, you feel that you have no future. When you constantly don’t see yourself in positive or heroic roles, how do you ever reimagine yourself?” Leguizamo was intrigued to learn that the DCPA Theatre Company will soon be presenting the world premiere of a play called twenty50 that imagines that by the year 2050, the white power structure in this country will absorb Latinx people into its population, in effect preserving a white majority. “That show sounds fascinating,” he said, “because when you look back at World War I, they didn’t separate Latin people from white people. They counted light-skinned Latin people and medium-skin-toned Latin people as white people. So now we’re going back to including Latin people as white people but the thing is: Why can’t we all just be Americans?” For an expanded version of this interview, including John Leguizamo’s Required Reading list, visit denvercenter.org/news-center.

From blasphemy to Broadway to banned to broadcast television, few pop-culture titles have generated the kind of buzz Jesus Christ Superstar has generated along the road to its current 50th anniversary national touring production. A decade after its last major tour, this iconic musical phenomenon is back, buoyed by a jaw-dropping 2018 reimagination that aired as a live concert on NBC and left many critics saying the high-energy staging had set a new standard for live theatrical broadcasts. “What could have felt like a dated rock opera was more like an uproarious arena concert filled with screaming fans,” wrote Deadline critic Dino-Ray Ramos. That Emmy Award-winning effort essentially cast the live audience as the so-called 50,000 screaming Jesus fans that Simon sings are ready to “ride into Jerusalem” and effect the greatest revolution in world history. That ambience is more in line with the kind of energy composer Andrew Lloyd Webber first had in mind when he and Tim Rice dared to imagine the final weeks in the life of Jesus Christ through a decidedly late 1960s rock ’n’ roll lens. “Superstar was written like a radio play, because that was the closest thing we had available to us,” Webber told Rolling Stone magazine. “I think it works best when it’s closer to a rock concert.” The new national tour, helmed by acclaimed director Timothy Sheader and cutting-edge choreographer Drew McOnie, captured a similar live energy as well, and subsequently won the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival. From the start, Superstar was slammed as blasphemous. Imagine the audacity of a new rock musical that dared to

tell the story of Christ’s downfall from the sympathetic perspective of his chief betrayer? The writers couldn’t find a producer at first. “We were told it was the worst idea in history,” Lloyd Webber later recalled. So he and Rice transformed their stage musical into a two-record concept album that was released in 1970, just after The Who’s own two-record celebrity opus, “Tommy.” But Rice was more inspired by the Bob Dylan anthem “With God On Our Side,” which features Judas in its penultimate verse. Rice was fascinated by the idea of Judas not as a craven back-stabber but rather a close friend struggling with the implications of Jesus’ growing popularity. “From a very young age, I had wondered what I might have done in the situations in which Pontius Pilate and Judas Iscariot found themselves,” Rice wrote in his autobiography. “How were they to know Jesus would be accorded divine status by millions and that they would as a result be condemned down the ages?” When the legendary concept album hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts behind songs such as “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Gethsemane,” “Heaven on their Minds” and the title tune, a Broadway staging went from impossible to inevitable. American fans had begun staging unauthorized live performances in churches and theaters around the country. But what bowed on Broadway in 1971 was polarizing. Webber himself called that first (of four) Broadway productions “brash and vulgar” — and he was not alone. The show was banned in South Africa and protested by everyone from the American Jewish Committee to the

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR IS REBORN AT 50


“…not only do I appreciate your beautiful rock-opera film, I believe it will bring more people around the world to Christianity than anything ever has before.” — POPE PAUL VI TO NORMAN JEWISON, DIRECTOR THE FILM ADAPTATION OF JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith to evangelist Billy Graham. (Though Graham did acknowledge that “if the production causes young people to search their Bibles, to that extent it may be beneficial.”) One of the major criticisms of Webber and Rice was having Judas come back from the dead to sing the title song, without taking a stand on the possible resurrection of Jesus. But if you look closely at the final shot of the 1973 film, said Ted Neeley, who played Jesus in the film (and on stage for the next 40 years), you can see a mysterious someone walking in the desert. “And let me just say: Those who have eyes to see will see that mysterious someone,” Neeley told The Denver Post during a 2008 tour stop in Denver. “The reason for that shot is that Norman Jewison and myself took issue with the fact that Tim and Andrew felt the piece needed to end with a crucifixion, showing no suggestion of possible resurrection and ascension,” Neeley said. “So when Norman made the film, that mysterious appearance is to suggest that life does go on, that there was resurrection of the spirit.” Ironically, Jesus Christ Superstar has found favor with Catholic popes across the decades. Jewison, who directed the 1973 film, arranged a special screening for Pope Paul VI. Neeley quotes Paul VI as saying: “Mr. Jewison, not only do I appreciate your beautiful rock-opera film, I believe it will bring more people around the world to Christianity than anything ever has before.” And the current Pope Francis said he enjoyed a recent stage production of Superstar in Rome. From its birth, Superstar reflected the rock roots that defined a generation. It has been credited (and blamed) for ushering in Broadway’s decades-long “British invasion” that brought such mega-hits as Cats and Les Misérables. And as time has passed, it has proven to be one of those musicals that demands to be re-interpreted again and again, as it has been for its 50th anniversary tour.

The University of Colorado and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts share an unwavering commitment to the arts. That’s why CU is proud to support these amazing performers and their performances. The arts enrich our communities and make our world a better place. All four CU campuses feature robust arts programs and activities, whether it’s paintings that explore the intricacies of medicine at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, the renowned Colorado Shakespeare Festival at CU Boulder, first-rate musical production programs at CU Denver or the remarkable Ent Center for the Arts performance venue at CU Colorado Springs. Our commitment to the arts extends to our students, who get opportunities to work with accomplished faculty, dedicated arts professionals, and talented actors and musicians in places like the DCPA. At CU, we’re proud of a commitment to the arts that stretches back well over a century. We have been part of the fabric of Colorado and intertwined with its arts community since both the state and university were founded in 1876. And we look forward to working with the DCPA to continue to ensure that the arts in Colorado remain vibrant and essential parts of our world.

S

Suspension of disbelief—when we’re willing to believe something surreal. It’s what helps us forget about the pressures of life and fully immerse ourselves in a good book, song or play. While many of us are tuning out the typical noise of day-to-day life (work, a full inbox, traffic), others are getting over more serious pressures and celebrating life through the arts. Todd Danielson, Keith Alexander, Faith Vigil-Schrader, and Nancy Spradling and her son Sean each had their share of serious pressures. From brain surgery, to colon cancer, to carbon monoxide poisoning, to leukemia and a stem-cell transplant, each person underwent treatment at UCHealth hospitals and has recovered so they can continue to live their extraordinary lives. Through our Moments to Shine program, UCHealth and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts teamed up to honor these people and those who rallied around them with a special evening to see a performance of the musical Wicked. Their experience also included a behind-the-scenes look at the “greening of Elphaba” and a signed poster of the cast. When they look back, we hope they will see this as a close to a chapter in their lives that ended on a high note.

Inspirational people. Unique stories of perseverance.

Sarah Fernandez is one of the actors who plays Elphaba in the national touring production of Wicked. Make-up artist Deborah Paulk demonstrated how she helps Fernandez become Elphaba for the show. Photos by John Moore.

CONNECTING PEOPLE. UNITING THE WORLD.

“With over 80 years of service to the Mile High City, we are proud of our longstanding commitment to the Denver community that thousands of employees and customers call home.” — SHARON GRANT, VICE PRESIDENT AND CHIEF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT OFFICER

United does more than connect passengers through safe and convenient air travel; it forges strong relationships with the communities it serves across the globe. United is pleased to serve as the official airline of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) and proudly supports its remarkable contributions to the performing arts community in Denver and beyond. United provides valuable travel support that allows the DCPA to bring in artists for its productions and sponsors Student Matinee performances for thousands of local students to expand their view of themselves and the world through a targeted theatrical experience and educational talkback. United employees have donated thousands of hours of service to various local non-profit organizations and have tirelessly conducted drives, mentored interns, hosted Aviation Days both at Denver International Airport and United’s flight training center, among many other efforts. As part of United’s relationship with Warren Village transitional housing center, employee volunteers enjoy actively participating with resident families at community events. United’s Volunteer Impact Grants program allows employees to earn grants for nonprofits where they volunteer frequently and has provided thousands of dollars to local organizations. United employees especially love bringing smiles to hundreds of deserving children through the annual holiday Fantasy Flight trip to the “North Pole” and teddy bear deliveries to local hospitals. “At United, we take our role as a community partner and corporate citizen seriously, and we are proud to support the DCPA,” said Sharon Grant, Vice President and Chief Community Engagement Officer. “With over 80 years of service to the Mile High City, we also are proud of our longstanding commitment to the Denver community that thousands of employees and customers call home.” In addition to DCPA, United is honored to support other Colorado organizations including the Colorado Symphony, Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Public Schools Foundation, Girls Inc., Latin American Education Foundation, Mile High Youth Corps, Warren Village and Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum and Exploration of Flight locations.

T “U.S. Bank is proud to champion arts and cultural institutions in our own communities, especially in the Denver area. Our on-going commitment allows us to invest in organizations our local employees are passionate about today and into the future.” — HASSAN SALEM PRESIDENT OF U.S. BANK IN COLORADO TRUSTEE, DENVER CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

The arts are a significant part of making Denver an amazing place to live and work. U.S. Bank believes in the power of play, which includes the arts. Play brings joy, helps problem-solving skills, creativity and relationships, and builds social and emotional learning. That’s why U.S. Bank is a long-time supporter of the magnificent programs and spectacular performances at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). The arts educate, promote understanding, broaden our perspectives and enable communities to share rich cultural experiences. Denver is fortunate to have a thriving arts community, which is home to some of the nation’s finest theatres, museums and artists. “At U.S. Bank, our commitment to corporate social responsibility comes to life through Community Possible, our corporate giving and engagement platform that closes the gap between people and possibility in the areas of Work, Home and Play,” said Hassan Salem, President of U.S. Bank in Colorado and DCPA Trustee. “The DCPA is an organization that is dedicated to bringing play to everyone in our community. DCPA is an outstanding organization, providing amazing performances, programs and outstanding arts education.” In 2018, U.S. Bank contributed more than $57 million to nonprofit organizations through Community Possible, with an emphasis on community development, diversity and inclusion, financial education and the environment. Additionally, its employees volunteered more than 209,000 hours and donated more than $14 million to charitable campaigns, demonstrating that employee engagement is a major component of its community success. U.S. Bank also is committed to providing consumers and businesses with a comprehensive range of financial tools and services to help them work toward their goals. For clients with more complex financial needs, U.S. Bank offers wealth management strategies and services. From investment management services to trust and estate administration, U.S. Bank offers clients sophisticated plans, sound advice, and customized service. “One of the key attributes of the growth in Denver is the rich investment in arts and culture made over many years,” said Salem. “The DCPA is a perfect example of what a first-class theatre that draws some of Broadway’s biggest hits has added to our community. We are privileged to host a variety of client events at DCPA and we always leave feeling very proud of our arts and culture community in Denver. Let’s all continue to celebrate DCPA, which is a shining example of why Denver is a leader in providing arts and culture opportunities.”
