Does thinking about the holidays this year make you feel a bit like a Scrooge? We understand the feeling. It can be hard to stay merry when there’s so much going on in the world. For the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, the inability to produce our annual tradition of A Christmas Carol this year came as a disappointment. The Wolf Theatre renovations are nearly complete, but with current CDC and city guidelines in place for slowing the spread of COVID-19, it simply wasn’t possible to make it happen this year. We found ourselves saying, “Bah, humbug,” more times than we care to admit.
Earlier this week, PHI Studio, Legendary Entertainment, and Emerson Collective announced an ongoing partnership to take acclaimed director Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s virtual reality exhibition CARNE y ARENA (Virtually present, Physically invisible) on a multi-year, international tour, set to debut in Aurora, Colorado.
The Denver Center for the Performing Arts is one of a select group of national nonprofit arts organizations participating in a three-part virtual concert series, Live from the West Side: Women of Broadway featuring two-time Tony Award winner Patti LuPone on October 24, Tony Award winner Laura Benanti on November 14, and critically acclaimed actress and singer Vanessa Williams on December 5.
