Ruined- Denver

{Ruined Denver- Review}
Tonight Jason and I attended the opening night performance of Ruined at the Ricketson Theater in Denver. If you read my blog then you know that I love seeing shows at any of the Denver Center theaters, they are always fabulous! The Ricketson Theater is one of the cozier venues and it was perfect because no matter where you sit you are close enough to the stage to feel, see and hear everything. 

{About the Show}
In this Pulitzer Prize winning play you see the war in Africa through the windows of a bar/brothel. You see the pain of the women in the Democratic Republic of Congo amidst the bloody civil war going on around them. The show is based on Mama Nadi, the owner of the bar/brothel and two of the girls who work for her. She provides refuge, food and a good time for men on both sides of the battle and all they have to do is leave their bullets at the bar.

{My Opinion}
This show was very good, I had a great time and I was drawn in and focused on each moment of the show. Learning the stories of the characters pasts and following them in their present. The story was full of drama but also had plenty of comedy to lighten the mood when things were getting a little heavy.

The actors were very good and you could feel the true emotion of the story through their portrayal. When they hurt, you could feel it. I am sure you have heard many times “it will make you laugh, it will make you cry” and this time it is true; I did both and so did the people around me.

If you love a good, genuine drama that is heartfelt and full of true emotion this is the show for you. I would recommend this show, I think it was great and I would see it again.

Wow, that sounds very heart-wrenching. One that would drain you emotionally. In other words sounds like an interesting show.
