    The Producers sticks a thumb in Hitler's eye

    I saw the Broadway version of The Producers when the touring company came to Denver four years ago. It was one of those shows you knew you had to praise: The New York critics were so excited about it that dissenting would make you sound like a bad-t...

    The Miracle Worker works, but it's nothing special

    William Gibson, who died recently at the age of 94, is best known for his play The Miracle Worker, and for making a star of the luminous Anne Bancroft, who played the lead on Broadway and later in the movie. The play tells the story of Annie Sulliva...

    Denver sees red with "National Velvet"

    Earlier this summer, a project that was dedicated as "finished" in 2006 was finally completed. It's the 16th Street Pedestrian Bridge, by Carter & Burgess, that crosses I-25 and connects the trendy Highland neighborhood to the ultra-trendy Platte Va...

    Germinal Stage makes an off-choice with The Show-Off

    Sometimes I don't understand the decision-making at Germinal Stage Denver. I've had some of the most stimulating evenings of my life in this homey, cozy, unchanging little theater where -- as the website blurb assures us -- the actors are never more...

    Reimagining history at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

    Colorado -- and its prominent place in romantic notions about the Old West -- has achieved celebrity status. It's one of the reasons we're invaded year-round by armies of scenic paparazzi seeking to hunt down picturesque landscapes and take candid p...

    Ernest Blumenschein is on Taos time at the Denver Art Museum

    It sounds like a preposterous moment in a cheesy and sentimental Western: A couple of artists out of New York City head from Denver to Mexico by wagon, break down and start an art colony that goes on strong for the next sixty years. It really does s...

    With Anywhere But Rome, Buntport is really going somewhere

    Ovid, otherwise known as Publius, has been banished from Rome and is traveling with Tiresias, standing at a crossroads, sticking out his thumb. Actually, he's packed Tiresias in his bag, which the blind seer fiercely resents. In a fit of fury, Ovid ...

    Andrew Kalmar and Ron Judish suit Denver to a T

    Ann Hamilton: soundings at Robischon Gallery

    Performance art, which has been around since the early twentieth century, is pointedly non-commercial because it's so ephemeral. It literally comes and goes with little remaining but memories -- and a few photos and props. It's the opposite of objec...
