My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


A Limited Opportunity 

If you haven't had a chance to yet, and you have an ooportunity to have a night out with your spouse soon, may I suggest a wonderful production of "Les Miserables" at the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts.

As one of only 15 regional theaters licensed to produce the smash London/Broadway musical, the ACPA has done a remarkable job of taking the super-scale production and making it work for regional theater. They work with a reduced cast, a very reduced orchestra, and a stage that may be only 1/3 the size of the normal theaters that put this on. Yet, there is nothing missing from the story line or the emotional impact of the musical. It is, in a word, remarkable.

And, when you consider that 29 of the 30 cast members are Denver-based (gotta love regional talent), you really get a sense that the future of the arts in the Denver Metro region is limitless.

IF it gets the support of the community. I've seen the play twice now--once with my oldest daughter, and once with the Mrs--and both shows were sold out, and they've had to extend the run twice.
