Coming soon! Ed Scissorhands, the “Dansical”

Those posters you’ve been seeing all along the 16th Street Mall? Featuring Johnnie Depp’s goth-painted, scarred face and lengthy-sharp fingernails? OK, so, that’s not just some nostalgic cult movie screening being advertised there.

You know that already? I didn’t know that already. I’m slow on the uptake. I had not realized that Tim Burton’s classic movie had been adapted for stage and choreographed for dance. Much like a ballet, from what I hear. No words. Just movement. Apparently we have Matthew Bourne to thank for this. Thanks, Matt!

You know you wanna see it. The Minneapolis Star Tribune thinks you should see it. I know I wanna see it. And if you do wanna see it, here’s what you need to know:

Opens: Wednesday, April 18th
Runs Through: Sunday, April 22nd
Venue: The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (click for details)

You should also know that there’s a BOGO promo going on. That’s “Buy One, Get One Free.” Order online and use the promotional code EDTOPIA to receive your free ticket.

As always, there’s a bit of fine print involved. Here it is at regular font size: Offer applicable to top two price levels only; not valid on previously purchased tickets; the 8 PM show on Sat. Apr. 21 is excluded from this offer.

Many thanks to the folks at Digital Entertainment Marketing and their generous blogger-enlistment campaign for bringing this to my attention so that I could bring it to your attention. I’ll be there opening night. If any of y’all plan to go, scroll down to the comments section and give me a holler.

    i can only pray it’s not as homo erotic as swan lake. Swans as half naked dudes running around flapping their arms getting into a bitch fight at the end, not really my cup o’ tea

    Er, “bitch fight”? Not exactly what I got out of that, but then I do like me some swanly half-naked dudes with my ballet.

    The reviewers seem to think E.S. is absolutely splendid. I’m very much looking foward to it.
