THE DOYLE & DEBBIE SHOW plays The Garner Galleria Theatre. This new hit musical featuring all-original songs is sublime homage and parody, simultaneously idolizing and lampooning country music’s tradition of iconic duos and the battle of the sexes that accompany them.

Fresh off an eight month stop in Chicago, Nashville’s perennial favorites Doyle and Debbie venture west to take Denver audiences on a wickedly funny and freewheeling joyride. THE DOYLE & DEBBIE SHOW is sponsored by MolsonCoors. doyleanddebbie.com. Denver audiences will see a big beautiful musical make its world premiere when SENSE &
