Fast cars. True crime. Live music. Come celebrate all things urban with Bovine Metropolis' new show: THE CITY: An Improvised Musical. Inspired by the music, dance, and style of the Jazz Age and musicals such as Cabaret and Chicago, THE CITY explores both the high-energy and dangerous sides of life in a metropolis through improvised scenes and music.
“You get the experience of seeing a musical in Denver’s theater district,” says Director Kat Bond, “But you have the joy of seeing the only performance created by your suggestions. It’s your private performance of a one-time show."
Be careful, though—not everything in THE CITY is coming up roses. People also come to the city for anonymity. And all those passing strangers, those narrow alleyways, those high-rise shadows mean that danger lurks in the urban jungle.
“THE CITY is a dangerous musical," says Bond. "While it is a comedy, we will not shy away from scarier or grittier subject matter. . . . Our characters will be on the fringe of society, the oddballs that can only exist in a city. You can be a murderer or a starlet in this show, even if you work at the dog groomer. Expect to laugh. Expect a story. Expect to see deeper themes and social commentary in a fun way.”
THE CITY plays on select Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets for 7:30 p.m. shows: $10 online*, $12 at the door, and $5 at door for College Students with valid ID (space permitting).
