The Millibo Art Theatre is the best small theater venue in Colo. Spgs. bar none. I have performed there several times. Jim Jackson and Birgitta Dupre couldn’t be more warm, welcoming and supportive. It has become like a second family to me. Always professional, but always benevolent. I love the place! Facebook: Charlie Ammen

I’ve been going to performances at the MAT for over 5 years and I have thoroughly enjoyed every performance. Jim and Brigitte are phenomenal! The chemistry between the two of them is amazing and I always look forward to seeing what the two of them will do. They are very welcoming and try to make everyone feel at home. They strive to introduce the audience to many forms of artistic performance in a way that isn’t intimidating. Brigitte’s character “Babette” is hilarious and always makes me laugh. My favorite performance of all time was the geriatric burlesque, my cheeks hurt from laughing. They never disappoint and every performance is an adventure. – Facebook: Lisa Bogle Virgil

“Patron Praise For “Babette’s Knock Out Opera”

“It was wonderful–funny, tasteful,  timing perfect, lines delivered perfectly, and the stage action brand new and beautifully carried off.  And as usual, all spoofs before the intermission. The 2nd act that follows always a bit more serious and thoughtful.  Madame Butterfly’s farewell aria at the end brought tears to my sentimental eyes.
As did,  even the parody of  “Death by Minor chord” –hilarious. instead of going straight to bed, I listened to the last act of La Boheme from farewell to his overcoat through those two agonizing calls,  “Mimi” and then again, “Mimi.”  and finally those slow, descending chords to the final quiet finish.  Yes, again, filled with tears of empathy for Rudolpho and Mimi and happiness of understanding.
