    Show and Tell is in the house

    I've been rooting around big piles of press releases looking for what lies between the lines for two years short of twenty here at Westword in my longtime role as calendar editor, and after all that time, I think I can safely say that Denver has plen...

    There's torture, but The House of the Spirits isn't torturous

    The power of The House of the Spirits, playwright Caridad Svich's take on Isabel Allende's celebrated novel, lies in the accumulation of images, actions and passionate words that the play pours out into the audience, as well as the bitter sadness at...

    American adaptation of France's The Ladies Man is a magnum farce

    Charles Morey adapted The Ladies Man from a farce by Feydeau -- pretty loosely, by Morey's own account. In the original, Tailleur des Dames, the beleaguered protagonist is guilty of adultery; Morey, surmising that the more puritanical American audie...

    Brilliant imagery saves a script that falls short in Hot + Wax

    This version of The 39 Steps is an uninhibited romp

    The 39 Steps is uninhibitedly silly -- a romp, a trifle, a takeoff on a 1930s Hitchcock film (which, in turn, was based on a novel by John Buchan) The plot, which didn't make much sense in the previous versions, has something to do with an attempt b...

    Despite its cuteness, Dead Man's Cell Phone fascinates throughout

    I wasn't interested in the discussion about the uses and abuses of cell phones in Sarah Ruhl's Dead Man's Cell Phone. To begin with, the theme is dated. Most people don't use their phones to talk these days; they're too busy checking e-mail, playing...

    Cavalia is a sensory experience and a galloping triumph
