Hopping aboard the BX to Boulder, Colorado’s university capital, I stopped off at the campus proper to get my fix of undergraduate goodness.
After checking out the historical society’s exhibits on sports, theatre and famous alumni (think Robert Redford), I headed to the library for a preview of an upcoming theatre performance. Two minutes (and three pastries) into the gathering, I realised that I was in the wrong place. Apparently, the performance had been relocated at the last minute (without posting the change on the website).
Saying sayonara to the tutor’s group meeting, I made my way to the theatre building (a much more logical place for it to be..) for some more free food, singing and discussion. The piece: RENT, Jonathan Larson’s master musical, based on Puccini’s La Boheme. Interesting fact: Larson died on the eve of the first performance from an aneurysm, after being dismissed from three hospitals as ‘fine’.
A quick stop at the CU Art Museum, filled with works from resident professors, lecturers and the like, plus a fascinating collection of Warhol’s personal polaroids, came next.
The town, which lies just north of the sprawled campus, had its own unique charm, from the sandstone courthouse building to the myriad little boutiques that lined Pearl Street.
Dedicated to one of the most beautiful cities on Earth - Boulder, CO.
