    Defying the laws of physics in a murder one less

    I don't understand quantum mechanics. I tried after seeing Michael Frayn's Copenhagen, a play about a meeting between Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg during World War II, and long before that, when I was seventeen, I read Erwin Schrodinger's What I...

    These three Denver solos set the scene

    I love group shows, in particular those that are held together by a clearly defined organizational theme. At their best, these sorts of exhibits can lay out a broad-based historic, aesthetic or stylistic narrative -- sometimes all three at once. But...

    The Avenue Theater's Die! Mommy Die! is the perfect summer camp

    It's been forever since we've had really good, outrageous, dirty-minded, over-the-top camp in Denver -- pretty much since Theatre Group gave up the ghost -- so it's a joy to find it back at the Avenue Theater in the form of Die! Mommy Die! Charles B...

    The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center shows off Herb and Dorothy Vogel's collection

    One of the interesting things about the art world is how open it is. I've been at many events where the attendees ranged from the classic starving artists who lived in their studios to zillionaire donors, along with lots of people like me, whose cir...

    Estelle Parsons heats up the stage in August: Osage County

    Robischon Gallery goes hyper-local

    During the many years I've been paying attention to art in Colorado, there's one thing that's always bugged me: people in positions of power or influence who dismiss it or degrade it. There are many reasons for this, but my favorite is when these de...

    Phamaly's Man of La Mancha is impossibly good
