    The Rice Stuff - Sugar energizes the Avenue's remounted Rocky Horror Show.

    My friend Julia, 24 years old, tall and striking and a one-time ballet dancer, was wearing rhinestone-encrusted stiletto heels for the occasion. When she rose to her feet, put her hands to her hips and did "The Time Warp," I knew the Avenue Theater's...

    The Good Guys' Goods - The Full Monty's striptease is more rousing than arousing.

    This was the most fun I've had at the Arvada Center -- in fact, the most fun I've had at the theater for a while. This venue generally attracts a pretty staid crowd, many of them middle-aged and older, and it was clear that some people were offended ...

    Sticks and Stoneware - A guide to Denver ceramics, and Maynard Tischler at DU's Myhren Gallery.

    Colorado has a strong tradition of producing ceramics. During the early decades of the twentieth century, this was due in large part to the abundance of natural clay. But there's no simple explanation for why the post-World War II era was such a gold...

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

    Typically, the show in the main room at Pirate: a Contemporary Art Oasis (3659 Navajo Street, 303-458-6058) has nothing to do with the one in the associates' space. That's not the case this time, though. Pirate member Marie E.v.B. Gibbons is a friend...

    Glass Menagerie - The spectacular Dale Chihuly solo sparkles at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.
