After 34 years of laughs, chills, songs and comedy sketches, Denver also could be losing one of its precious few remaining downtown theater spaces
Denver’s Avenue Theater, as we have known it for 34 years, is history.
The Avenue Theatre Group, which runs the uncommonly resilient little boutique theatre at 17th Avenue and Logan streets, has dissolved, said Dave Shirley, who has acted as the theatre’s Executive Director since 2017.
“We hung in there for a really long time, but we were just barely getting by,” Shirley said of the mighty little theatre that has had more near-death experiences than Harry Houdini. “It just got to the point where we were all tired.”
