Opening No. 85: The Avenue Theater’s “Minimum Wage”: The Happy Burger Boys of “Minimum Wage” are, from left, Damon Guerrasio, Michael Bouchard, Carter Edward Smith and Keegan Flaugh. Denver’s own Smothers Brothers — Charlie and Jeff LaGreca — created a hit on the New York fringe circuit with this endearing original musical comedy that takes you into the training ground zero for happy-time burger-flipping … Jim Jones style. The result is a cross between “Fast Food Nation,” “Saturday Night Live” and “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” — with a lot of fun a capella music thrown in. The LaGrecas have turned the reins over to iconic local director Nick Sugar — but you also know Charlie as the man who has turned Comic Con into a big-time Denver happening. Also featuring Abby McInerney. And if you are hungry, The Avenue is offering a “Burger & Fries” discount ticket in partnership with the burger-flippers next door at Park & Co. Showtimes: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays; plus 2 p.m. Sundays through Aug. 17 at 417 E. 17th Ave., 303-321-5925 or the avenue’s home page. Thanks: Steven Neale, Colin P. Elliott, Brian Freeland, Nuri Heckler and Bob Wells.
