None of Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies and histories are safe from the hilariously unpredictable and fast-on-their-feet improvisers of "Makeshift Shakespeare". Each week, Denver's brainiest improv troupe creates new Shakespearean plays on the spot, based solely on an audience member's suggestion for a title. The unlimited possibilities of improvisation combine with the richness of William Shakespeare's legacy, turning the language, characters and stories from the greatest playwright who ever lived into something totally new -- and totally hilarious.
Get ready for a spontaneous Broadway-style, song-and-dance spectacular courtesy of Colorado's premier unscripted musical comedy team. Each week, audience members throw out suggestions, and the performers of Hit and Run create an hourlong musical comedy on the spot with live music. From the melodies to the lyrics and choreography, every show is different. You'll see flashy dance moves, soaring ballads and more emotional outbursts than "Rent" and "The Phantom of the Opera" combined. While Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber may take years to write a musical, Hit and Run thinks fast on their feet and sings whatever pops into their heads, debuting a hilarious new show every time they step on stage.
Nashville country artist Chris Cagle is one of the premier country artists to emerge in the early 2000s who took the United States by storm with his self-titled 2003 album. Cagle went through some challenging vocal problems not long after, making it difficult for him to tour. But never mind the setbacks, Cagle's 2011 album Back in the Saddle, says it all.
