Always Patsy Cline - Boulder Dinner Theatre, 5501 Arapahoe Ave, Boulder CO 80303
Having first heard Cline on the “Arthur Godfrey Show” in 1957, Seger became an immediate and avid fan of Cline’s and she constantly hounded the local disc jockey to play Cline’s records on the radio. In 1961 when Cline went to Houston for a show, Seger and her buddies arrived about an hour-and-a-half early and, by coincidence, met Cline who was traveling alone. The two women struck up a friendship that lasted until Cline’s untimely death in a plane crash in 1963. Focusing on the fateful evening at Houston’s Esquire Ballroom when Seger hears of Cline’s death in a plane crash, Seger supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous–Anytime, Walkin’ After Midnight, She’s Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy–to name a few.

Native Gardens - Space Theatre - DPAC, 994 14th St, Denver CO 80202
Dealing with neighbors can be thorny, especially for Pablo and Tania, a young Latino couple who have just moved into a well-established DC neighborhood. Though Frank and Virgina have the best intentions for making the new couple feel welcome next door, their newly budding friendship is tested when they realize their shared property line isn’t where it’s supposed to be. Frank is afraid of losing his prized garden, Pablo wants what is legally his, Tania has a pregnancy and a thesis she’d rather be worrying about, and Virginia just wants some peace. But until they address the real roots of their problems, it’s all-out war in this hilarious and heartfelt play about the lines that divide us and those that connect us.

A Picasso - Mizel Arts and Culture Center, 350 S. Dahlia, Denver 80246
Pablo Picasso (Logan Ernstthal) has been summoned from his favorite café by German occupation forces to a storage vault across the city for an interrogation. His questioner is Miss Fischer (Susie Roelofsz), a beautiful "cultural attaché" from Berlin. Her assignment: discover which of the three Picasso paintings recently "confiscated" by the Nazis from their Jewish owners are real. The ministry of propaganda has planned an exhibit, and only the great artist himself can attest to their authenticity. What Miss Fischer finds leads to a cat-and-mouse drama about art and politics; sex and truth; and a twist at its climax.
Tad Pfeffer: Ice in the World - Communicating the Reality of Climate Change - Chautauqua Auditorium, Boulder, 900 Baseline Rd, Boulder CO 80302
Glaciers are, paradoxically, the epitome of slow motion, and today, among the fastest-changing parts of the Earth’s natural environment. Glacier and ice sheet changes worldwide indicate the power and speed of environmental change, and foretell human consequences ranging from sea level rise to loss of local and regional water resources. Witnessing these changes first-hand is a privilege few of are granted; with that privilege comes the responsibility to study and understand the processes of change and to report our knowledge accurately and completely.
