Event Review: Motherhood Out Loud
Last night was opening night of Motherhood Out Loud at Avenue Theater and it was FANTASTIC! This show is for anyone that is, has, or is planning on being a Mother. So, I guess that means everyone (guys too.) I'm a dad, so a lot of this show I saw happen with my wife and even experienced some of what a Mother goes through as well, but this has so much more. From the massive unknown before a child comes into this world, all the way to when rolls switch and child becomes parent. The coolest thing is that all the scenes and monologues were written by a whole gaggle of different women writers from TV, stage, film, novels, you name it. And they ALL work perfectly together. I experienced everything from full-on "i-ve-been-there-before-laughs" to tears of joy on how beautiful life can be to tears of sorrow at how fragile and fleeting life can be. The cast is spot on across the board and throughout the show! You will walk away thinking wo words. "Thanks Mom!" Oh, and call her if you can. Go. See. This. Show.
A variety show like Vox Phamalia: Quadrapalooza, presented at the Avenue Theater, required a whole different set of skills from a director.

To achieve this, director Edith Weiss selected stories from those sent in by cast members, edited them and did some writing of her own, along with Jeremy Palmer. She had to learn how to work with actors... More »
Nick Sugar was born to play the raucous, all-stops-out part of Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch. In this Avenue Theater production, he got to strut, cross-dress, belt out numbers both sexy and forlorn, boast, whine, mock and beg -- and all while he held the audience spellbound. And then he went further, reaching deep into his own soul to find a redemptive dignity amid the squalor. More »
Who knows where Chris Whyde disappeared to for three years, but with Die! Mommie Die!, he made a sensational re-entry onto the Denver scene as Angela, a murderous Bette Davis/Joan Crawford-type diva. His was an impersonation that even those ladies might have liked: He had every intonation, queenly gesture, dignified turn of the head and changing flicker of expression down pat. When Whyde was gobsmacked, he still maintained his dignity (except for the occasional meltdown and a couple of... More »
