    Mob Hit Misses - The Godfather game isn't personal. It's strictly business.

    Marlon Brando sleeps with the fishes. But before the legendary actor died, he worked one last job. Curiously, it was for a videogame. In The Godfather: The Game, Brando attempts to relive his Oscar-winning role as Don Vito Corleone. From the raspy ...

    Hit Parade - It's business as usual for the Civic Center, Denver's premier urban space.

    Though my workaday life is filled with the high-minded pursuit of looking at exhibitions, I do have more than a few guilty pleasures. I love Peeps, for example, those marshmallow chicks rolled in yellow sugar available this time of year. I also love ...

    Skyline Park, which runs along Arapahoe Street between 15th and 18th streets, was once a world-class example of modernist landscape design. It was created in 1970 by Lawrence Halprin and featured a multi-level topography created with cast-in-place co...

    Spit and Polish - The Clean House looks good at the start but gets soggy.

    The first act of Sarah Ruhl's The Clean House is about as perfect a piece of theater as I can imagine. On a stunningly evocative, elegantly gray-and-white set, with cool, beautiful lines and an abstract but vaguely human-looking sculpture lurking in ...

    Ticket to Ride - Private Eyes is a sight well worth seeing.

    Private Eyes is a very smart play. For a while I tormented myself trying to decipher the plot, but I couldn't do it. Some critics have compared the story to a set of nested Russian figures, but I think it's more like a drawing by M.C. Escher. An eve...

    Cowboy Up - We just can't quit this countrified Karaoke.

    With scrappy warblers like Kellie Pickler and Bucky Covington trying to out-twang each other on American Idol, country music is hotter than a corn dog at a county fair. One reason is that almost anybody can sing it. Even mopes who argue that NASCA...

    Naomi Then and Now

    Ellie Parker (Strand) This extremely raw portrait of an actress trying -- and failing -- to make it in Hollywood showcases Naomi Watts in a wrenching and sympathetic performance. Writer-director Scott Coffey shot the movie over nearly six years, b...

    Blithe Spirit - Phantom of the Music Hall is full of fun, not frights.

    "Poor Wandering One" is among the loveliest of Gilbert and Sullivan's many lovely melodies, but you haven't really lived until you've heard Johnette Toye singing it -- as she does in Phantom of the Music Hall. Toye preens and staggers and makes her m...
