Forbidden Broadway: Alive & Kicking Now through March 1, catch this all new view of the highs and lows of recent Broadway shows, like Porgy and Bess, Spiderman and The Book of Mormon, at the Garner Galleria Theatre in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. With outrageous costumes, hilariously rewritten songs, and dead-on impressions, you’re in for a real treat. Tickets start at $25.
Whales: Giants of the Deep Now is one of your last chances to see this exhibition at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Did you know that baby whales drink two to three gallons of milk in a few seconds?! That’s just one one of the many fun facts you’ll learn at this exhibition, which ends February 16.
