“To fully enjoy ‘The Ladies Man,’ you must suspend belief and remove your hat of plausibility for a zany ride,” according to a press release from OpenStage Theatre. “Charles Morey’s free-handed adaptation of Georges Feydeau’s fast-paced and frothy French farce is set in turn-of-the-century Paris. The shaggy-poodle story tells of a physician wrongly suspected of infidelity by his youthful wife.

That is a very conventional definition but nowadays home has a wider meaning…’”

Loco-Motion Show
Poudre Studio Artists
Friday and Saturday
“What started out as an exhibit showing ‘planes, trains, and automobiles’ has morphed into a fascinating look at things that move as well as art that moves,” according to www.beetstreet.org. “Our building is located right next to the railroad tracks, so I think that’s where the idea for this exhibit originated. At one time the building was even a location for freight-damaged furniture, presumably unloaded right from the train,” said Becky Hawley, Marketing Director of Poudre Studio Artist & Galleries. “It’s a artful way to honor that heritage and present some striking pieces of art.”
