    At Lit's End - Humble Boy stumbles with its Hamlet references.

    There's a lot that's good about Humble Boy, currently showing at the John Hand Theater. The play is literate, with eccentric characters, some absorbing scenes, occasional unexpected moments -- but somehow the structure eluded me. And all the esoteric...

    Mad Mama Drama - Germinal's Independence offers a credible look at a smother.

    Seeing Thinks - Smart conceptual solos are on view at + Gallery and Capsule@Pod.

    Although its roots go back almost a century, to the World War I-era work of Marcel Duchamp, only in the past thirty or so years has conceptual art become a common approach. Today the Denver area has many proponents of conceptualism; key among them is...

    Artbeat - Brief sketches of what's happening in the Denver art scene.

    There are so many talented representational painters in the area, it's a wonder that no curator of some local museum or art center has thought to put a group of them together in a show. The next best thing might be a duet, which is essentially what's...

    Con Game - Shadow Theatre's Topdog/Underdog plays a winning hand.

    Topdog/Underdog features two brothers in a dingy, inner-city room. Lincoln and Booth -- their names were given to them by their feckless father as a joke -- tell tall tales, spar and play tricks on each other. For a while their bickering seems lighth...

    Smear Factor - Fresh, painterly riffs on abstraction star at Havu and Sandy Carson.

    I think it's easy to comprehend why artists have been so taken with the ethos of abstract expressionism. As the late philosopher king Andy Warhol once noted, it's easier to be sloppy than it is to be neat. Well, that explains abstract expressionis...
