You’ll love all the characters, especially Hick

April 17, 2012

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a man who’s used to being large and in charge, will have more than his moment in the spotlight when Curious Theatre Company devotes its entire seventh annual Denver Stories play to the good guv.

It’s quite a departure for the annual production, which traditionally features multiple prominent Denver types.

“If you can find that one person, it ends up being quite the tribute to that individual,” said Curious artistic director Chip Walton. “We’re well on our way to being 70 percent sold out.”

The play, written by Josh Hartwell and acted by John Jurcheck (who I’m told shares Hick’s long and lanky physical features) will have a one-night run on June 20 at the theater at 1080 Acoma St. The evening includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres by Occasions Catering (formerly Occasions by Sandy) beginning at 6 p.m. There will be a live auction and post-show party as well as the performance.

Tickets are $1,000 per person. Sponsorships are available at $5,000 to $10,000 through Diana Gatschet, director of organizational advancement at 720-258-4212 or at

Will the governor make a cameo appearance in his own play? I’d bet on it. “It’s part of what we’ve talked to him about doing without a firm commitment one way or the other just yet,” Walton said. I’m betting the condo.
