OpenStage Theatre is featuring the sophisticated comedy La Bête by David Hirson. La Bête is a dazzling production, replete with an opulent set and stunning costumes and wigs recalling France in 1654.
La Bete is best translated as “fool” or “beast” and the main character, the street performer Valere, is exactly that. Critics have called Valere “bombastic, audacious, boorish, pompous, obnoxious, annoying, and….supremely entertaining!” He is certain to leave a lasting impression on audiences when he challenges a renowend acting troupe and instigates a battle between high and low art. Directed by Peter Anthony and starring OpenStage Theatre mainstays Steven P. Sickles, Greg Clark, and Gregory J. Adams, La Bête will keep audiences of all ages laughing. Through October 3 at the Lincoln Center, 417 W. Magnolia, Fort Collins. Tickets: $10-30
