Review: Burn This Sizzles at Edge Theater   1/17/2017   by Juliet Wittman, Westword
Burn This begins in grief as Anna, a dancer turned choreographer, mourns the loss of her roommate and dance partner, Robbie, who died in a boating accident with his lover, Dom. Anna’s own lover is Burton, a low-key and pleasant-spoken screenwriter, somewhat ashamed of his wealthy background and struggling to write a meaningful rather than commercial screenplay.

Edge Theater's "A View From the Bridge" is a powerful foray into American & family tragedy, through Dec. 31   12/08/2016   by Patrick Dorn, Playwright, Author, Reviewer
The first hour and a half of The Edge Theater Company’s masterful production of A View From the Bridge demonstrate Miller’s genius for creating complex characters, naturalistic yet lyrical dialogue, and compelling themes that start very personal and become universal by extension.

Edge Theater Scorches the Stage with Premiere of "Murder Ballad"   9/5/2016   by Craig Williamson, Denver North Tribune
Going to see a new, unfamiliar musical can be a risky proposition. With the classics, and even the newer megahits, the story and the music are both familiar, we know we love the story and songs, and it is just a question of how well a show is produced. But something completely unfamiliar, like the regional premiere of Murder Ballad, showing this month at The Edge Theater in Lakewood, offers a clean slate. No expectations, some potential for disappointment, but also potential for an unexpected surprise. The Edge’s production of Murder Ballad is definitely the latter. It is powerful and moving, filled with raw emotion and passion communicated potently through word, movement, and music.

Risky productions hallmarks of successful Edge Theater in Lakewood   04/26/2015   by Austin Briggs, YourHub Reporter, The Denver Post
From the outside, the Edge Theater may look bare bones, but the theater company has slowly gained a reputation — and respect — for offering gritty, risky performances not typically seen in established theater companies.
