Mine is a mixed review. The talent was good but the first half of the show did not match that talent. The content was superficial and left me and my companion with eyes rolling and the feeling of "so what". Luckily, we stayed for the second half where the content began to match the talent. Here there was emotion, self-exploration, and internal conflict that made for interesting theater. So, don't expect much from the "set up" but be prepared to be surprised by the followup.

In English with English supertitles
The names of Baby Doe, Horace Tabor, and Augusta Tabor have become mythical, but they are actual figures in Colorado history.
A star vehicle for the late Beverly Sills, the role of Baby Doe will be sung by soprano Jillian Khuner.
