    Life's a Cabaret - Jacques Brel really is alive in this splendid Theatre Cafe revival.

    These are brilliant songs. They're wonderfully performed at the Theatre Cafe by four singers and three musicians. And that's all you need for an evening of pleasure and insight -- along with a glass of wine, a table with a white cloth, and a single r...

    Beirut. In Alan Browne's play, Beirut is the name given to New York's East Village, where, in a futuristic dystopia, HIV-positive people are quarantined (the play doesn't use the terms "AIDS" or "HIV," but the references are clear). Outside of this ...

    Mile-High Masters - Herbert Bayer is feted at Emil Nelson, while Vance Kirkland will be featured at the Newton Auditorium.

    The definitive art history of Colorado has yet to be written, but even without a scholarly guide, it's not hard to list the great ones. In terms of mid-century-modernist abstraction, for instance, it is widely known that Herbert Bayer, who lived in A...

    Lust Lost - Unblinking Beirut imagines an era when AIDS poisons intimacy.

    Let's start with the obvious: It embarrasses me to see a naked guy on stage. Not when he's standing motionless, bathed in golden light and looking like a statue of Apollo, but when he's wandering around a cluttered, filthy-looking room, spooning food...

    Shepard's Ghosts - New Chasm View offers a solid Fool for Love.

    These days, I can't watch a Sam Shepard play without having my brain thronged with ghosts of Shepard viewings past. So as Chasm View's Fool for Love unfurled in front of me, I found myself clicking off the expected elements in my head. A cheap motel ...

    Prescription for Success - The MCA's drug show is not as intoxicating as its proposed new building.

    Cydney Payton plays many roles at Denver's smallish, newish Museum of Contemporary Art, including that of director and chief curator. She doesn't put together every show at MCA, but she does organize the vast majority of them. In fact, it was her rep...

    Womanly Mamet - The Denver Center's Boston Marriage is fine folly.

    For the entire first act, the Denver Center Theatre Company's Boston Marriage is pure enjoyment. It's light and fast, and the language is dizzying -- clever and cleverly self-punctuating. The plot concerns two nineteenth- century women who live toget...

    Harried Holiday - The Long Christmas Ride Home is a promising work in progress.

    Paula Vogel's The Long Christmas Ride Home begins as a tart-tender look at an overworked topic -- the way family dynamics become exacerbated, for good or ill, at Christmas time -- and ends up floundering in sentimentality. The play's defining feature...

    Separate Ways - Chuck Parson and Emilio Lobato follow different paths to formalist abstraction.
