BLACK STOCKINGS is a Brechtian styled morality play about sex and war set in a brothel in Manchester England. Two prostitutes tell stories and jokes about their lives and livelihood. Donna is older and maybe tired of it all but has few other options. Trish is younger and still optimistic for the future. It is her story about her relationship with her Granddad, a decorated WWII bomber pilot, which gives the show moral substance. The audience is asked to consider disparages in morality of war using prostitution as a measuring stick. How do you define morality? While BLACK STOCKINGS uses an example from WWII, not much has changed over the years. Have you paid any attention to what is happening in Syria lately? The audience is also asked to consider the victims of war, who are often not so easily apparent.
Why take "Black Stockings" to the Orlando Fringe Theater Festival?
Winnie got her start in theatre all thanks to the Orlando Fringe. 2014 is the 23rd Orlando Fringe. For the first 10 years the Orlando Fringe existed, she volunteered at the festival and fell in love with Fringe style theatre. This is also where she met Peter McGarry, who wrote BLACK STOCKINGS. The first theatre space Winnie opened was Performance Space Orlando (1998-2000); a small venue near downtown Orlando where she rented to anyone who needed a stage. She moved to Denver, Colorado in 2001. She opened Denver's Dangerous Theatre in 2006. It was not until she opened Dangerous Theatre that she started producing, directing and acting. Peter McGarry is one of her favorite playwrights, and a good friend and mentor. She has produced a number of his plays. Peter McGarry brought his Eyewitness Theater Company to the Orlando Fringe for many years. His productions were always fringe favorites. Peter originally produced "Black Stockings" at the Orlando Fringe in 2002. Winnie is super excited to bring this challenging play back to Fringe and experience the festival from the "other side". She is also suitably terrified to be performing in front of family and friends in Orlando who have never known her for this. This is why BLACK STOCKINGS is having a short 3 week run in Denver BEFORE heading to Orlando.

BIG INDIEGOGO SWAG SEND OFF PARTY!
Sunday, May 4th – 2:30 – 6:30
Free to attend if you see the show at 1:00 or have made an Indiegogo donation.
The Orlando Fringe is from May 14 – 26, 2014. Winnie and Brit will be driving down to Orlando for the festival. The festival itself was not cheap to get into. Of course there are travel, marketing and beer tent expenses as well. So Winnie and Brit have an Indiegogo.com fundraising campaign with some interesting swag offered for donations. After their final Denver performance on Sunday May 4th they are hosting a big send off party as a last ditch effort to beg for money! There will be lots of food and hard cider from the Colorado Cider Company. We will also have a silent auction, raffle and other fun ways to give us money, or just come party and wish us well! People who donate through Indiegogo will be able to collect their swag at this party!
Every 3rd Thursday at 7:30
NEXT SHOW: April 17th!!!
Hosted by Winnie Wenglewick
Every 3rd Thursday Dangerous Theatre owner Winnie Wenglewick attempts to emulate her favorite late night talk show host, Craig Ferguson, with her own brand of live talk show. Winnie pontificates about world events, guests will be interviewed, Madame Delores will answer audience questions about relationships and there will be a special sweet tooth intermission. Audience members 21+ welcome to bring wine/beer to enjoy during the show. Other refreshments available at the theatre.
Come on out for a most interesting evening of comedic, interactive entertainment and dessert.
April's show will feature comedy and burlesque! Winnie's guests are Abby Alt and Charmen Ghia!
Abby Alt is one of Denver's newest hot comedy acts. She may look like your girl next door, mini van driving PTA mom, that all changes once you hear her take on raising a family of 7 in this economy (can you say Brady Bunch on steroids) marriage, and life mixed in with a few dirty martinis. Abby's act is funny, honest and irreverent.
Carmen Ghia a little sporty, a little classy, a little cheap and a little trashy, just like the 1970's Volkswagen of the same name. She has been doing burlesque for a little over a year. She describes her burlesque style as a romantic comedy. She encourages people to laugh with her when I'm performing and not at her (unless she falls flat on her ass). She's a Colorado native, former gymnast and current runner. When she is not dancing she spends her time behind a chair as a barber.
At intermission there will be sweet treats to nosh on. Winnie hasn't figured out yet what she is in the mood for.
Come on down. Door opens at 7:00, show starts at 7:30.
Tickets are only $5.00.
Every 4th Thursday at 7:30

“Junk is king.” - Jeremy Grantham
Hell Toupee Cabaret presents our first ever Hell Toupee sequel, Junk 2. Our first Junk show was such a huge success, that we felt that we had no choice but to revisit the theme. So if you would like to see a show which is well endowed with humor, if perhaps a little low on good taste, this is the one for you! Featuring Xeno Sex Ed, Urologist Ghost Stories, Live Cover, What the Hell Does Yours Look Like and more!
Come on down. Door opens at 7:00, show starts at 7:30.
Tickets are only $7.00..
Hell Toupee Cabaret is sponsored by Planet X Tattoo & Supply, featuring $20 piercings and $100 per hour custom tattoos every day of the week. Bring your show program for 25% off tattoos and piercings!
