Heritage Square has earned its name: Although the attraction -- tucked into the foothills in Golden -- has some modern draws, such as the alpine slide and bumper cars, people flock to this little corner of the metro area for the old-timey soda shoppe and stores hawking handmade wooden toys (among other wares). And the Music Hall is one of the reasons Denverites keep heading west throughout the year. It offers fun in down-home style -- first with food in a large, friendly dining room, then with an outrageously hammy melodrama acted by seasoned, talented performers who are clearly enjoying themselves. These productions aren’t weighted with high concepts or the huge costumes or over-miked sound of the commercial variety. Rather, they’re funky, funny and unpretentious. Sing along or heckle if you want -- but be prepared to find yourself on stage or with a cast member perched on your lap if you sit too close to the front.
The quality of the food varies, and the shows range from hilariously creative to the occasional damp squib. But over its 25 years, Heritage Square Music Hall has always been worth a visit.

Event Review: The Abbey Roadshow
This is a great show for Beatles fans or anyone else who loves great music. It's not a "tribute band" (nobody wears wigs or tries to do impersonations)- it's a group of really good musicians who pay their respects by playing the Beatles' music very, very well. The songs range from classics like "Please Please Me" to deeper cuts like "Dear Prudence" and "Hey Bulldog." And their rendition of the whole Abbey Road album is well worth the price of admission alone! It's a terrific show for the whole family. Go see it!
The usual crew was on stage for A Musical: In Perfect Harmony: impresario T.J. Mullin, Rory Pierce, Annie Dwyer, Johnette Toye, Alex Crawford, Eric Weinstein and Randy Johnson, whose nimble piano playing is always a large part of the pleasure of... More »
For the past two decades — ever since T.J. Mullin took over the space where William Oakley had been mounting melodramas — Heritage Square has produced some of this town's most consistent entertainment. Over the years, Mullin and his actors have... More »
