Boulder Ensemble's latest is 'Survivor: Leipzig'

BETC ends seventh season on a high note with 'Bach at Leipzig'

By Gary Zeidner
After the rather lackluster The Other Place, the usually metronomically reliable Boulder Ensemble Theatre Company (BETC) comes back strong with Bach at Leipzig. If you enjoyed the movie Amadeus — and if you haven’t seen that film I can’t recommend it enough — you’ll revel in this jaunty, cheeky, fictionalized look at the cutthroat competition to assume one of the highest posts in the rarified world of music in Germany circa 1722.

Praise the Lord and pass the lefse

It’s time to get real

A drama in thriller drag

'The Other Place' is one twist short of zowie

By Gary Zeidner
To quote Public Enemy, “Don’t believe the hype.” To paraphrase the Dead Milkmen, I’m not saying that The Other Place isn’t a good play. It’s a fine play, an all-American play full of good, upstanding people.

Walking in the whimsy wonderland of 'Almost, Maine'

Love is in the cold, winter air

By Gary Zeidner
Love. It’s life’s sweetest reward. If you let it flow, it floats back to you. Love can be exciting. It can be new. And if you get on board with love, it might even be expecting you.

A clockwork beige for Boulder's Catamounts

A little bit of sci-fi lite

By Gary Zeidner
If you’ve seen even a small handful of movie commercials over the past decade or so, your mind’s ear will immediately recall the intense, slightly gravelly voice I’m referring to when I ask you to imagine an ad that starts, “In a world where mutants run the surface and pterodactyls rule the sky, the only way out is underground.”
