    Present Joy - The Denver Center's annual Christmas Carol is sublime.

    The conversion of Scrooge at the end of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol always delights, whether you're reading about it or seeing it on a stage. I remember Alistair Sim in the iconic 1951 movie, capering around the room in his nightgown, startli...

    For a Song - Patsy Cline is light entertainment.

    Always...Patsy Cline is a light, mildly entertaining evening. You get an efficiently evocative set that's divided into three parts: a down-home apartment; an old-fashioned country bar, complete with jukebox; and, in the center, the stage of the Grand...

    Boston Marriage. For the entire first act, Boston Marriage is pure enjoyment. It's light and fast, and the language is dizzyingly clever and cleverly self-punctuating. The plot concerns two nineteenth-century women who live together in an arrangemen...

    View Masters - Karen Kitchel and David Sharpe record the Western landscape in solos at Robischon.

    Over the past few decades, the contemporary-art world has gotten so vast that no single approach can characterize our era in the way that abstract expressionism represents the '50s or pop art evokes the '60s. Now, just about anything goes, as long as...

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

    Though Spark Gallery (900 Santa Fe Drive, 720-889-2200) has been in its new digs since this past summer, the members have yet to figure out what to do with the new spot. I have an idea: Wheel some of those temporary walls into the generously sized st...

    Voices That Carry - The 1940s Radio Hour bathes the stage in refreshing nostalgia.

    You're familiar, of course, with the old theatrical plot line in which the lead gets sick, the understudy is forced to go on in her place, and, after a hesitant start, the young woman wows the audience and becomes a star overnight. Something like tha...

    Simple Truths - Hearts to God struggles to convey the Shaker religion.

    The Shakers were a utopian, egalitarian religious group, originally an offshoot of the Quaker community in eighteenth-century England, whose adherents dedicated themselves to God by separating themselves from the world and giving up all worldly pleas...

    Changing Views - Additions to downtown's built environment and possible subtractions in the hinterlands.

    Daniel Libeskind must be happy with Denver since, unlike in New York, the Polish-born American architect has been allowed to follow his vision to its logical conclusion. In New York, Libeskind's Freedom Tower, which will be erected on the site where ...

    Im-purr-fect - Boulder Dinner Theatre's Cats can't overcome the show's built-in sentimentality.

    No one goes to see a play in a vacuum, so let me put the evening I attended Cats in context: It came at the end of a week spent alternately reading student papers (in my other life, I teach writing at CU) and conferencing with the authors of those pa...
