    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.

    I've been pretty tough on Jerry Gilmore, chief curator and director of the art program at the Arvada Center, because he seemed to model his behavior on that of the proverbial bull in a china shop. Soon after he took over a few years ago, for example,...

    A Classy Classic - The Misanthrope has both vision and visuals.

    Wings of Change - Bas Bleu's Perestroika continues the excellence of the Angels saga.

    No question, the Angel at the center of Tony Kushner's Angels in America is a tricky creature -- neither divine nor malevolent, sometimes comical, highly sexual. She's not any old angel, either, but the angel of America, which accounts for the freque...

    Beneath the Beast - A tile mural by Martha Daniels aims to ennoble an ignoble public space.

    Art displayed in public places dates back to the very start of civilization. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Persians, the Chinese, the Romans and many other ancient cultures adorned their buildings and streets with art. And the situation has chan...

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

    Mark Brasuell's solo at Edge Gallery (3658 Navajo Street, 303-477-7173) has the bizarre title of Difficult Abstraction. I say it's bizarre because the four paintings that make up the show are not the least bit hard to look at. The artist apparentl...

    Love-Hate Relationship - Dirty Story is a rich exploration of the conflict in Palestine.

    Sketchy Stuff - Buntport's Macblank, while funny, feels like an extended skit.
