By the Waters of Babylon

Final Performance October 19

Final Performance Today - 10/19! Note: if online ticket sales have ended, worry not! We have plenty of seats at the door. Beginning October 9, we bring you the regional premiere of By the Waters of Babylon, by the 2014 Tony Award® winning playwright Robert Schenkkan.

Catherine, a widow, is the object of gossip and suspicion about her husband's death. Arturo is a Cuban refugee with a tragic secret, hired for the day to tame Catherine's overgrown back yard. Haunted by their previous lives, the two journey through their deepest fears and desires to find themselves on the shore of a new beginning. Our production – the East-of-the-Rockies premiere – features Corrie Miller as Catherine and René Millán as Arturo.

"Haunting and romantic . . . Miller and Millán are fascinating to watch." – Amy Stumpfl, The Tennessean
" . . . a fervently humane valentine to midlife, soul-scarred love." – Seattle Times
". . . [the] theme is nothing less than the possibility of redemption by both love and art." –  Crosscut
