By John Wenzel, The Denver Post | Denver’s historic Oriental Theater plans to resume live concerts on June 26 with a series that shrinks audiences to no more than 50 people.

The opening lineup for the “Safe Sound” series features fewer than a dozen acts ranging from musicians to wrestlers, magicians and comics. The shows will take place on Fridays and Saturdays on select weeks, with roughly two showtimes per night, according to an email from The Oriental Theater’s owners. Showtimes vary per weekend.

Most events will cost $8-$20, while a comedy-magic show from Claire Voyant (July 25) will cost $25-$50. Details are available at theorientaltheater.com.

The reopening comes amid news that Oriental Theater owners Scott Happel and Peter Ore are now running the music venue at 60 S. Broadway, formerly 3 Kings Tavern. . . .
