The Colorado Shakespeare Festival opens...with, according to John Moore, a slate that features the tried and the true, the black and the blue-blooded. Once again, the acclaimed repertory company in Boulder will be populated with many recognizable faces from the Denver Center who will join with notable actors from the local and national theatre communities.
Leading voice in producing Shakespeare to direct Much Ado About Nothing: Getting Jim Helsinger to come to Boulder was a coup. “Jim is well-known in the industry as a brilliant artist and leading producer of Shakespeare’s works,” says Tim Orr, Producing Artistic Director of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. “In his CSF directorial debut in Much Ado About Nothing, he brings a range of impressive directing credits, as well as first-hand experience as an actor and playwright.”

When the Colorado Shakespeare Festival opens its 58th season on June 6 (following a preview performance on June 5), audiences are sure to be charmed by sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick played by real-life couple Vanessa Morosco and Peter Simon Hilton in Much Ado About Nothing. It will be the first time the duo has performed the romantic rivals opposite one another.
On the heels of its critically acclaimed, record-breaking 2014 season, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival gets underway with two perennial Shakespeare favorites: Othello and the beloved comedy Much Ado About Nothing will open in the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre in June.
