“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”
Music and Lyrics by William Finn, Book by Rachel Sheinkin,
Conceived by Rebecca Feldman, additional material by Jay Reiss,
Directed by Colin Roybal
February 5 – 27, 2016
Winner of the TONY and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” is about an eclectic group of six mid-pubescents who vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.
“SILENCE! The Musical”
The Unauthorized Parody of The Silence of the Lambs
Book by Hunter Bell, Music and Lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan
Directed by Deb Flomberg
April 8 through 30, 2016
This regional premiere was selected by Time Magazine as one of the Top Five Musicals of 2011, and it’s finally coming to Denver. In the Academy Award-winning film The Silence of the Lambs, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter’s clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill. The laugh-out-loud raunchy satire, “Silence! The Musical,” features a singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin. Even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life he’d like to lead someday outside the prison walls.
“Evil Dead: The Musical”
Book and Lyrics by George Reinblatt
Music by George Reinblatt, Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond and Melissa Morris
Directed by Deb Flomberg
June 10 through July 16, 2016
In 2013, Equinox presented “Evil Dead: The Musical” to sold-out crowds and packed the full four-week run, winning multiple awards, including the Broadway World award for Best Comedic Musical. Now, it’s back by popular demand with an extended six-week run of even bloodier song and dance. Based on Sam Raimi’s 80s cult classic films, “Evil Dead: The Musical” unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp” takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.”
“The Toxic Avenger: The Musical”
Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro
Music and Lyrics by David Bryan
Based on the film by Lloyd Kaufman
Directed by Colin Roybal
August 12 through September 3, 2016
Another regional premiere and winner of the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, “The Toxic Avenger” is a charming love story and laugh-out-loud musical that has it all — an unlikely hero, his beautiful girlfriend, a corrupt New Jersey mayor and two guys who play… well, everyone else … bullies, mobsters, old ladies, and stiletto-wearing back-up singers, plus the show also features the most memorable and unbelievable duet you’ll ever see on any stage. Melvin Ferd the Third wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey. Foiled by the mayor’s bullies, Melvin is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero. Affectionately known as Toxie, our new hero is a seven-foot mutant freak with superhuman strength who is out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.
“One Death, Please?”
By Christian Munck
Directed by Patrick Brownson
November 11 through December 3, 2016
In keeping with their mission of presenting new works to the audiences of Denver, Equinox is thrilled to present this world premiere play by local playwright Christian Munck. “One Death, Please?” is about a young pop-star named Olive Warren who seems to have it all, however no amount of fame or stardom can make her truly happy. Warren decides enough is enough and sets out to take her own life with the help of an assisted suicide clinic run by Daniel and Erin Muscarelli. However, just like her Hollywood lifestyle, Warren soon finds out that nothing is truly as it seems. This smart new work is equal parts funny and captivating while shining a harsh spotlight on the brutality of the popular media.
