Progressive Theater Brings Regional Premier Belleville to Denver Theaters

Posted: September 5, 2017 at 10:25 pm by , in Metro Arts

Progressive Theater in Denver is breaking the conventional mold for theater by featuring the regional premiere of Amy Herzog’s Belleville at multiple theater locations throughout the Denver area. Belleville is a slow burning drama about the lies we tell ourselves to keep the people we love. It follows two young married Americans, Zack and Abby, living in Paris in a “funky bohemian apartment in up-and-coming Belleville”, as revelations slowly begin to unravel their lives.  By collaborating with Denver theater companies, Progressive Theater is presenting Belleville as a fundraiser to each theater space that serves as a host space. They’ve already raised over $1,100 for Vintage Theater in Aurora, and next up, they’ll be at the Buntport Theater in Denver.  KGNU’s Veronica Straight-Lingo spoke to Elizabeth Nye, the Director of Belleville and Candace Joice, the co-founder of Progressive Theater about the company and the show.
