Knee-slapping fun

Dear Editor:

OMG! LOL! LMAO! If you thought the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue was great, fun entertainment last year, wait till you see this year’s edition!

Friends, we are living in tough times, serious conditions, but every now and then you’ve just got to escape and have a good time. The corner of Colorado Avenue and 9th in Glenwood Springs is the place to do it at a pleasing price. We almost needed a seat belt so we wouldn’t fall out of our chairs laughing!

If you miss the great entertainers of the Crystal Palace, come to the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue. You will find many of those folks performing there, plus the Roaring Fork Valley’s own Song and Dance Man, John Goss, who is the creative genius behind this fantastic, frolic-filled fun.

There’s great singing from Broadway-type songs (one made funnier with the “plumber’s friend” as a prop) to TV cliches and comically interrupted opera; snazzy dancing from tap, fan dancers (of the comic male variety), Fred and Ginger-type ballroom (with, of course, a humorous twist); and laughs at least every 15 to 30 seconds from sketches featuring Hillbilly expectorate prowess, a smarter-than-the-ventriloquist dummy, and hysterical (because of their serious nature) parodies on ridiculous subjects.

You will not be able to drive home without chuckling about the Knott Family, anticipating telling your friends the one-liner jokes, and giggling about the Roadkill Rap, yet keeping a little keener eye out beyond your headlights so as not to add to those unfortunate critters.

This is all accompanied by great rag-time piano playing, tasty pub-style food and a full bar. Everything – show, food, and drinks – are very affordable, good quality, and with a wide variety from which to choose. There’s really no better fun atmosphere to take a date, your family, celebrate a birthday, anniversary, holiday, or just step away from any glum circumstance.

The GVR Summer show is presented Friday and Saturday evenings (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) and Sunday early evenings (doors open at 5:30 p.m.). And, because of popular demand, the GVR will be presenting Christmas and winter shows this coming season. Call 970-945-9699 for reservations and go to for more info.

Then get ready to have a lot of fun! We’re going back again and taking friends!

Kerry and Ricki Newman
