    Talk, Talk

    With its battered floors and bright galleries, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is an unusual venue for theater, but in some ways a very fitting one for Lee Kalcheim's Defiled, or the Convenience of a Short-Haired Dog. In the first gallery -- w...

    Burning the Yule Log

    The Junky's Christmas (Koch) They just aren't cranking out claymation Christmas specials like they used to, which makes this a welcome one. Nicer still, it's got heroin! A mixture of stop motion with a little puppetry and live-action shots of Will...

    Peasant Dreams - With this script, Saint Joan is a Shaw bet.

    Almost everything about OpenStage Theatre's production of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan is superb, with the exception of the director's basic concept -- and that's a very big exception. The cast, led by Jessica V. Freestone as Joan -- a strange, s...
