    The Art of History - The Ballad of Baby Doe brings an American era to life.

    Because I grew up in London, where the ghosts of Roman soldiers, Saxon traders, Renaissance poets, Victorian merchants, Cockney fishmongers, bishops and queens and kings and murdered princes whispered beneath the pavement, it took me a long time to a...

    Mad About You - Beyond Therapy shows how crazy love can, and should, be.

    Love is hard to find. If you find anything -- anything at all -- remotely resembling it, you should hang on for dear life. Or at least take a long, thoughtful second look, no matter how absurd the thing seems initially or how tempted you are to cut a...

    Now Playing - Brief reviews of current shows

    The Caretaker. The setting is a grimy, one-room flat filled with papers, boxes and mismatched bric-a-brac. It's an appropriate mole hole for sad, befuddled Aston, who thinks he's good with his hands, tinkers constantly with a screwdriver and dreams ...

    Decades of Influence: Colorado 1985 - Present - Carol Keller Project Space

    Of the four aspects of Cydney Payton's marvelous Decades of Influence: Colorado 1985 - Present, the part on view at the Carol Keller Project Space (1513 Boulder Street, 303-298-7554) is by far the edgiest. When I first heard that the Keller spot was ...

    Flying at Half-Mast - A Folded Flag keeps a good play under wraps.

    An old woman lies dying as her son sits by the bedside. Tension vibrates between them. Each character offers a poetic monologue that feels a bit forced; when a playwright has someone gaze out above the heads of the audience and wistfully emote, the w...
