What a surprise to find quality theatre only the locals know about after a day of skiing in Aspen/Snowmass. A mix of high-energy comedy and sketches performed by legitimately talented and credentialed melodramatic actors played to a full house in this village up the valley. This is a fantastic way to spend an evening after skiing, while still getting a taste of local culture. Hearing the crowd laugh about things like the local civic affairs and the Italian place down the street gave such an instant and full understanding of what made them unique. As a jaded cynic of small-time theatre and a theatre degree to back it up, it was shocking to see such quality of this type at the local level.
