Parabasis: That's Live Theatre For You:
The first act of This Beautiful City is largely devoted to creating the world of Colorado Springs, following around various citizens of the town, including high ranking members of Ted Haggard's church (New Life), a transgendered Christian woman, a few atheists, members of other churches etc. The second act is largely devoted to the fallout of the Haggard revelations on the various characters introduced in the first.
SO here's the thing... Ted Haggard was in the audience last night with his wife, Gail. I found out at intermission, before the show's focus had shifted to being about Haggard and the fallout of his outing.
