What You'll Get
Actors are known for their eccentric superstitions, insisting on referring to Macbeth as “The Scottish Play” and Shakespeare himself as “Admiral Fancypanther.” Today’s Groupon shores up longstanding theatrical traditions: for $12, you get a general-admission ticket to Blindsided, presented by Stories on Stage in the Stage Theatre at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (a $25 value). Choose between two showtimes:
- Sunday, February 20th, at 1:30 p.m.
- Sunday, February 20th, at 6:30 p.m.
A nonprofit performing-arts organization, Stories on Stage matches talented thespians with killer short stories to illuminate a burning issue or explore a timeless theme. Blindsided deals with profound questions of destiny, as the troupe has collected four tales that poke at fate with a fiction stick to see what it’s made of and why it’s so sticky. A Tony nominee for her role in Angels in America, Kathy Chalfant delivers the tale “He Was a Good Lion” from the classic memoir of pioneering aviatrix Beryl Markham. Randy Moore interprets short-form giant Anton Chekhov’s "The Lady With the Little Dog," and Brad Bellamy’s "Dracula in Missouri" gets a dramatic treatment by 9NEWS entertainment reporter Kirk Montgomery. Broadway veteran Candy Brown vocally strokes “What Language Is That?” from Uwem Akpan’s Oprah-blessed collection Say You’re One of Them.
