THEATRE ASPEN 2023 SUMMER SEASON

JUNE 22 -

JULY 8

The Carole King Musical tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom. From the string of pop classics she wrote for the biggest acts in music, to her own life-changing, chart-busting success with her studio album “Tapestry,” Beautiful takes you back to where it all began.

The story follows King as part of a hit songwriting team alongside her husband Gerry Go n, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Featuring over two dozen pop classics, including:

“You’ve Got a Friend,” “One Fine Day,” “Up on the Roof,” “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” and “Natural Woman.” This crowd-pleasing international phenomenon is lled with the songs you remember—and a story you’ll never forget.

JULY 14 -

JULY 29

A brilliant and powerful drama, is a 2005 play by John Patrick Shanley that analyzes an instance of doubt and suspicion in a Catholic school in the Bronx in the 1960s. The play tells the story of principal Sister Aloysius’s suspicions about an inappropriate relationship between a priest, Father Flynn, and a young male student. Recipient of the Tony Award® for Best Play and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

AUGUST 4AUGUST 26

Set in the vibrant East Village of New York City, Rent is a captivating musical that explores the themes of love, self-discovery, and the pursuit of joy in the face of adversity. With its remarkable achievements, including winning the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has become a cultural sensation with a story that deeply resonates across generations.

Loosely inspired by Puccini’s opera “La Boheme,” Jonathan Larson’s Rent takes us on a transformative journey through the lives of a group of struggling young artists and musicians in the Lower East Side of New York. Larson’s powerful rock-infused score, combined with his poignant and emotionally charged lyrics, brings the story to life, delivering memorable songs like “Seasons of Love,” “La Vie Bohème,” and “Rent.”

SEPTEMBER 7-14

Solo Flights returns for a fourth season of single-person productions. Join us for a weeklong developmental festival of one-person shows presented in the beginning stages of their making. In addition to the performances, Solo Flights features signature events including talkbacks, creative discussions, panels, and special receptions.

JULY 2, AUGUST 6 & 13

Theatre Aspen’s Summer Cabaret Series returns for another season at Hotel Jerome. This summer favorite will take place on July 2, August 6 and 13, o ering a trio of unique and unforgettable performances. New this summer, the Brunch Cabaret, see the website for details.

Dear Friends of Theatre Aspen,

We are delighted to welcome you to the Hurst Theatre for the 2023 Summer Season, our 40th Anniversary.

We are very excited about and proud of our summer schedule: “Beautiful,” “Doubt,” and “Rent” will highlight our mainstage performances; three di erent cabaret programs to be enjoyed at the iconic Hotel Jerome; as part of our education program, we will stage three wonderful productions of “The Tempest,” “Shrek,” and “Spelling Bee;” and our 4th annual Solo Flights Festival of one-person shows will close out our season from September 7-14.

We have been so fortunate to have been a part of this community these last four decades. And although 40 years is a mark of distinction for our theatre, it more importantly symbolizes the support we have received from all of you.

When our founder, Kent Reed, established “Theatre Under the Jerome” in 1983, he did so with a loan from Aspen Community Theatre. That gesture symbolized the kindness and generosity of the Aspen arts community, and the community at large. We are eternally grateful.

How lucky we have been to have had the opportunity to entertain these past 40 years. Here’s to at least 40 more!

Thank you for being here. We are so happy to be making theater in the most beautiful place in the world.

2023 SUMMER SEASON 3 FROM OUR BOARD CHAIR & PRODUCING DIRECTOR
CHAIR, BOARD OF TRUSTEES PRODUCING DIRECTOR Clare Evert-Shane Jed Bernstein

STAGE PRESENCE

Reprinted with permission from Aspen Sojourner Magazine

In 1983, with a loan from Aspen Community Theatre, a dream to produce the highest-quality staged plays for Aspen audiences, and an 80-seat performance space in the basement of the Hotel Jerome, actor Kent Reed founded what would become Theatre Aspen.

As part of commemorating its 40th anniversary this summer, the company is mounting its rst three-show main stage season in its Rio Grande Park tent theater since the prepandemic summer of 2019. It is also bringing back its Solo Flights new works festival (a creative incubator for emerging talent and the one-person form), launching a series of anniversary events, and planning a permanent performance venue that could be its home for decades to come.

“It’s the most ambitious year of programming that Theatre Aspen has ever undertaken,” says Producing Director Jed Bernstein.

The summer season opens with Beautiful—The Carole King Musical, the Broadway hit backed by iconic songs like “You’ve Got a Friend.” But, like last year’s crowd-pleasing production of Jersey Boys, Bernstein notes, King’s life story from Brooklyn to the top of the Billboard charts transcends the bubblegum “jukebox musical” form and vividly tells the story of an artist.

They’re also staging RENT, the 1990s phenomenon that brought a new generation of young people to musical theater through timeless songs and spotlighting the dawn of the AIDS crisis, as well as John Patrick Shanley’s provocative, Pulitzer-winning Doubt, about a priest under suspicion.

Theatre

celebrates 40 years of showbiz with another packed season and plans for a permanent home in Rio Grande Park.

ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS OFF STAGE AND ON

The company is also producing a video series—to be released online this summer. It will honor the creators and community members who have made Theatre Aspen what it is today, from Aspen icon Reed, who came from Kansas City 40 years ago to found what was then known as Theatre Under the Jerome, through the leadership of board chair Soledad Hurst during the pandemic.

As Bernstein put it: “This 40th anniversary is not a selfre ective celebration of ‘Oh, look at all the great things we’ve done.’ It’s more a celebration of the community that has supported us.”

In that spirit, in addition to its 40th Anniversary Gala on July 30, the company’s September 6 Community Cabaret will invite Aspenites to reprise their roles and vocal performances from four decades on the Theatre Aspen stage.

Aspen 1998.034.0943 Aspen Historical Society, Aspen Times Collection. Bill Shorr, Kent Reed, and Barbara Shaw in Theatre Under the Jerome’s incubator space in the basement of the Hotel Jerome on June 27, 1985 2018.002.0497- Aspen Historical Society, Durrance Collection. Volunteers pause for a break during construction of the Aspen Community Art Park, with the rst incarnation of Theatre Aspen’s tented performance space, at Rio Grande Park in May 1989.

The lobby of the Hurst Theatre will also include a display throughout the season with memorabilia (comprised of news articles, programs, photos, and posters) documenting the company’s history. The people who carried the theater from the Jerome to its rst leaky tent in the city-run “Art Park” to its current vaunted status will be the stars.

LOCAL SPOTLIGHT

While the theater draws Broadway talent and stars to its stages for buzzy and high-caliber shows—most recently Oscar nominee Judd Hirsch starred in a one-night winter bene t production of Love Letters—Bernstein notes that community-focused programs and educational o erings are among its most important. Last year, Theatre Aspen partnered with the Aspen School District to launch a performing arts curriculum and theater classes for students from fth grade through high school. This year’s expansion to Parachute will make it among the broadest regionalreaching Aspen-based arts o erings for kids.

“We’ve been privileged to have so much community support,” Bernstein says. “With that comes a big responsibility not only to deliver quality but to make sure that we are serving all the audiences in the valley that we possibly can.”

LOOKING AHEAD

With the next 40 years in mind, the organization is proposing to build a permanent year-round theater on the idyllic riverside site where its tent is currently housed. Along with a larger venue—increasing capacity from the current 199 seats to 276—the new space would add amenities such as dressing and green rooms to replace the trailers and gravel lot that cast and crew currently use beyond the tent aps. Renderings by architect Charles Cunni e include an auditorium that would be built partially belowgrade beneath an expanded grass plaza, retaining the alpine aesthetic of the postcard-worthy site bordering Rio Grande Park and the John Denver Sanctuary. Still early in the process, the plan received a positive response in its rst public airing before the Aspen City Council in August 2022. “Adding a traditional theatrical venue to Aspen’s already formidable list of venues would be a real advantage to the community,” Bernstein adds.

“We want Theatre Aspen to be an important part of the national theater ecosystem. We’re making great strides, and I promise it’s not going to take another 40 years to get there.

“WE WANT THEATRE ASPEN TO BE AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE NATIONAL THEATER ECOSYSTEM.”

When it’s time to promote, support, and embrace our community,

we act.

E VEN IN A SPEN , with its cultural riches and world-class everything, it is community members of all sorts who provide the daily support to keep things humming, singing, playing, and dancing. That’s a year-round effort, whether on the stage, in the boardroom, or at the front of the house.

We’re theatre people, and we can’t imagine not giving our time and effort to keep the curtain open and the quality, well, Broadway. But we’re house people, too. And the reason we help our clients find their homes in this town is because we can’t imagine finding ours anywhere else.
