Marlowe's Musings - The Nance Review   3/14/2017   by David Marlowe

Theater: Edge Serves Up a Fascinating Slice of History With The Nance   3/7/2017   by Juliet Wittman, Westword
Douglas Carter Beane’s The Nance, now seeing its regional premiere at Edge Theater, is a play about burlesque in 1930s New York; it’s a fascinating slice of history, and an equally fascinating character study. The nance, a smirking effeminate caricature, was a regular feature of these entertainments: singing funny, sexually charged little ditties, tossing out double entendres and punning like crazy. Although homosexuals suffered fierce prejudice at the time, the nance — who was often a straight guy in his private life — was viewed as acceptable and highly popular entertainment.

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.

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. After relocating two years ago into the now thriving art district on West Colfax Avenue, the Edge Theater has garnered a handful of regional awards while drawing larger audiences, especially residents from within Lakewood, who historically shied away from theater.
