Bovine Metropolis Theater welcomes winter with new shows, drink specials and zombies




Since I’m buried under two feet of snow, I’m thinking about winter happenings – especially ones that take place indoors.  Lots of things are happening at the Bovine Metropolis Theater – home base for Denver’s improv community -- this winter.  Take a look…

Tuesday, November 3, is the premier of “Tuesday Night Throwdown.”   A lot like professional wrestling, TNT showcases two local improv groups in a head to head cagematch.  Maybe we’ll see some blood and guts flying around the stage as these teams fight it out to return the following Tuesday.  Also featured each Tuesday are two Bovine house improv teams – groups you’ll no doubt want to see again and again every week.  Showtime: 7 p.m.  Tickets: $7.

If the recession is cutting into your improv spending, then you’ll want to head to the Bovine during Denver Arts Week.  All shows on November 6, 7, 8, 13 and 14 are two-for-one which means you’ll have some dough leftover for a beer afterwards.  Be sure to order the beer of the day at Rock Bottom Brewery – it’s always fresh and always the right price.

Denver's first musical improv show -- straight from Los Angeles -- "Hit and Run" turns into "Hit and Run: Musical Holiday" on November 13.  Imagine a Broadway musical without a script – that’s “Hit and Run” … now with a holiday twist.  Showtime: Fridays at 8 p.m.  Tickets: $16.

So zombies are everywhere, right?  If you aren’t connected to a zombie in some way, then you’ve obviously been sleeping through this Halloween season.  But are you down for Christmas zombies?  Hell yes!  Bring it on.On Saturday, November 14, "Hark the Herald Zombies Sing" -- the Bovine's original holiday sketch show – opens.  Written by the performers, “Zombie” is what you get when you blend Zombies, Christmas and SNL. 

And as if all that isn’t fun enough, the Bovine has thrown in an extra treat from their friends at The Rialto Café.  Accompanying a ticket to the 4 p.m. show is a free happy hour drink or appetizer at The Rialto.  I’m getting thirsty already.  ShowtimesSaturdays at 4 and 8 p.m. through December 19.  Tickets: $12 and $16.  Reservations are strongly suggested as the Bovine’s holiday shows are usually standing room only.  One bonus … opening night falls during Denver Arts Week so tickets are half off for both shows.  Talk about a cheap date night!
