THEATRE PERFORMANCES THIS WEEKEND
Closing weekend of Fool for Love
Wendie Malick and Dan Lauria perform The Guys at the Community Concert Hall, Sept 10
Fool for Love Closing Weekend
Surreal and searing Sam Shepard's, Fool for Love is an explosive tale of love, hate and the dying myths of the Old West. Reality and dream; truth and lies; past and present mingle in a raw and emotional experience. More info.
LOCAL REVIEWS "...the production uncoils in explosive stops and starts. [Actors, Jason] Lythgoe and [Joy] Kilpatrick convincingly stalk each other, alternating as predator and prey. Goading, seducing or mocking, they mutually taunt and tease until an emotional bomb explodes, often with physical consequences."
"Those who know Shepardâ€™s plays have come to expect intensity and biting commentary about relationships; the DAC production is no different... There are just four actors in the play, and the intuitive [Theresa] Carson, DAC's Artistic Director, was fortunate to find and cast performers with extraordinary talent."
Thursday-Friday, September 8-9 at 7:30pm

New Face Productions, a fundraising committee of the Durango Arts Center, will present a special performance of THE GUYS on Saturday, September 10, starring TV and Broadway famed actors Wendie Malick and Dan Lauria.Proceeds will benefit DAC and local first responders.
Written by Anne Nelson, THE GUYS, which is based on a true story, revolves around Lauria's fire captain, who is grappling with the deaths of eight of his men; and an editor, played by Malick, who helps him write their eulogies for a memorial service.
PREVIEWS "[The play] is really is about the indomitable human spirit... you see how [the characters] work through, together, a way to honor the fallen heroes and to celebrate their lives as well as mourning their death. So it really is a celebratory piece, and a cathartic one and itâ€™s a great way to pay tribute to all of the first responders all over the country."
