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

    Along with a lot of other people in Denver, I had my heart broken last winter when Skyline Park was bulldozed. The decision to destroy the park, which runs for three blocks along Arapahoe Street between 15th and 18th streets, was the last of many ter...

    Naked Emotion - Martin Moran's The Tricky Part becomes uncomfortably intimate.

    When I was in my early teens and an aspiring actress, I read a book by Richard Boleslavsky titled Acting: The First Six Lessons. As I remember, one of these lessons is about a young actress who's been cast as Ophelia. Although she has found the neces...

    Mind Over Matter - The University of Denver salutes architect emeritus Cab Childress.

    Though it's a block or so to the south, there's no missing the University of Denver campus while driving along I-25. For that matter, you can't miss it from South University Boulevard or Evans Avenue, either. It's all those recently built, eye-poppin...

    A Simple Tale, Well-Told - Central City's The Juggler of Notre Dame achieves a quiet grace. By Juliet Wittman

    Jules Massenet's The Juggler of Notre Dame (Le Jongleur de Notre Dame) was first performed in 1902, and until Central City Opera took it on, it hadn't been staged in the United States for half a century. It's a medieval tale, with an essentially time...

    Mixed Messages - There's change and neo-modernism at + Gallery, and new realism at Pirate.

    It's the biggest art news of the summer -- but don't get excited, because it's not necessarily a good thing: The + Zeile Judish Gallery is now minus Judish and has changed its name to + Gallery. Both the story and the new name strike me as ridiculous...

    Peter Illig's solo (see review) is rocking the front of Pirate: a contemporary art oasis (3659 Navajo Street, 303-458-6058), making it a hard act to follow. Luckily for us, emerging artist Warren Kelly, whose show children's games is installed in the...

    Talent Triumphs - PHAMALy rolls a winning Guys and Dolls.

    Class Dismissed - The Student Prince could use a lesson in brevity.

    I suppose if I'd done my homework, I'd have been less disappointed by Central City Opera's production of The Student Prince. Other than a vague memory of some infectiously rousing drinking songs, I knew nothing about the operetta. I thought it would ...

    Tear-Jerker Ending? - The Bonfils/Lowenstein Theater, a beloved Denver landmark, may be in danger of demolition.

    Members of the Denver City Council and community leaders have been talking a lot lately about improving East Colfax Avenue. And I have to admit, even if I love the honky-tonk character of the street -- and I do -- it does look pretty shabby in places...
