On this week's show:
A discovery of 20th century actor John Barrymore memboralia at CU Boulder’s Norlin Library is helping to shape the Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s upcoming production “I Hate Hamlet.” CPR’s Arts Bureau talks with the grad student who unearthed the forgotten stash as well as the actor who plays the ghost of Barrymore in the show.
Dale Chihuly is one of the best known artists in glass sculpting and, starting this weekend, 14 of his works will be on display at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The fragile pieces traveled some 1,300 miles from Tacoma to Denver. Arts reporter Corey Jones explores how the artist and his staff protect the work.
With the ninth annual Lit Fest underway at the Lighthouse Writers Workshop in Denver, arts reporter Corey Jones talks to some of the Lit Fest instructors and attendees about how they beat writer’s block.
