    Capsule reviews of current shows

    Bubs. This is a play accompanied by songs, a concert yoked to a narrative, with the elements held together by the talent and energy of actor-singer Erik Sandvold. Writers Cy Frost and Doug Olson came up with the idea of showcasing a slew of differen...

    Avenue Q brings puppetry of the people to Denver

    Most of the characters in Avenue Q are college graduates in that in-between stage -- bright and literate, finished with school but not ready for the daily grind of making a living -- and they've congregated on New York's grungy Avenue Q. Idealistic ...

    In the Dairy Center's My Name Is Rachel Corrie, a peace activist's words live on

    There's a period in women's lives -- roughly the years between 18 and 24 -- that strikes me as profoundly touching. During this time, young women are often filled with inchoate plans and longings, and they haven't yet figured out the distinction bet...

    At Curious Theatre, Curse of the Starving Class leaves you hungry for more Shepard

    The moment you walk into the theater for Curse of the Starving Class, you know you're in Sam Shepard country -- a place suffused with memories of the mythic Old West, but where the breadth and purity of that myth serve only to underline the disappoi...

    Avenue Theater's Bubs should stick to music, because the plot is off-key

    Bubs is a crossover production, a play accompanied by songs, a concert yoked to a narrative, and that's not a bad thing: Crossovers attract new people to an art form that everyone seems to agree is in trouble (though we've been worrying about theate...

    The late Dale Chisman put Denver in the picture

    On September 3, I made my way to the Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver as I've done so many times since the new building opened last year. But this time I wasn't in pursuit of an art show. Instead, I was headed, along with a few hundred others, to t...

    Mark Travis: A Memorial Exhibit at Space Gallery

    The death last winter of Mark Travis, a contemporary artist who made his reputation in Denver's go-go scene of the 1980s, left a big question mark regarding a scheduled exhibit of his work. His representative, Michael Burnett of Space Gallery (765 S...

    Christo and Jeanne-Claude have Denver wrapped up

    The Electric Fountain at City Park

    I'm a political junkie, so having the Democratic National Convention here was a treat. And since Denver strategically spiffed up over the last few months in preparation, it was a delight to see our beloved city looking sensational on TV and giving u...

    Spotlight Theatre does justice to Twelve Angry Men

    The characters in Twelve Angry Men are straight-up '50s stereotypes: the wishy-washy adman; the mindless sports fanatic; the pathetic old guy whose life is lonely and filled with regret; the onetime slum kid; the paranoid racist; the Eastern Europea...

    The Eyes of Babylon reveal the thoughts of a gay marine in Iraq.

    At the very beginning of his one-man piece, Jeff Key appears in his underwear, so the first thing you find yourself focusing on is his beautifully toned body, an image to which your mind returns periodically -- and pleasurably -- throughout the cour...
