    Rare Sightings - Jeff Starr and Margaret Neumann riff off their idiosyncrasies.

    Denver artist Jeff Starr became famous locally in the '80s, but in the late '90s, he took a powder and disappeared. Last year he made a big comeback when his work was selected for the 2003 biennial at Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art. Artists step...

    Present Joy - The Denver Center's annual Christmas Carol is sublime.

    The conversion of Scrooge at the end of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol always delights, whether you're reading about it or seeing it on a stage. I remember Alistair Sim in the iconic 1951 movie, capering around the room in his nightgown, startli...

    For a Song - Patsy Cline is light entertainment.

    Always...Patsy Cline is a light, mildly entertaining evening. You get an efficiently evocative set that's divided into three parts: a down-home apartment; an old-fashioned country bar, complete with jukebox; and, in the center, the stage of the Grand...

    Boston Marriage. For the entire first act, Boston Marriage is pure enjoyment. It's light and fast, and the language is dizzyingly clever and cleverly self-punctuating. The plot concerns two nineteenth-century women who live together in an arrangemen...

    View Masters - Karen Kitchel and David Sharpe record the Western landscape in solos at Robischon.

    Over the past few decades, the contemporary-art world has gotten so vast that no single approach can characterize our era in the way that abstract expressionism represents the '50s or pop art evokes the '60s. Now, just about anything goes, as long as...

    Voices That Carry - The 1940s Radio Hour bathes the stage in refreshing nostalgia.

    You're familiar, of course, with the old theatrical plot line in which the lead gets sick, the understudy is forced to go on in her place, and, after a hesitant start, the young woman wows the audience and becomes a star overnight. Something like tha...

    Simple Truths - Hearts to God struggles to convey the Shaker religion.
