Still Very Much Alive

Minor worries aside, Cole's sensitive approach serves as a fitting tribute to both the author's enjoyable yarn--Joyce was fond of referring to the sketches in Dubliners as "epiphanies," for their insights into life--and the ensemble's accomplished interpretation. Indeed, as the play concludes, our souls swoon with Gabriel's as he stares out an imaginary window and observes, with Ibsenesque aplomb, the "snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead."

The Dead, presented by the Hunger Artists Theater Ensemble through February 13 at the LIDA Project Experimental Theatre, 80 South Cherokee Street, 303-893-5438.
