    Lust Lost - Unblinking Beirut imagines an era when AIDS poisons intimacy.

    Let's start with the obvious: It embarrasses me to see a naked guy on stage. Not when he's standing motionless, bathed in golden light and looking like a statue of Apollo, but when he's wandering around a cluttered, filthy-looking room, spooning food...

    Shepard's Ghosts - New Chasm View offers a solid Fool for Love.

    These days, I can't watch a Sam Shepard play without having my brain thronged with ghosts of Shepard viewings past. So as Chasm View's Fool for Love unfurled in front of me, I found myself clicking off the expected elements in my head. A cheap motel ...

    Prescription for Success - The MCA's drug show is not as intoxicating as its proposed new building.

    Cydney Payton plays many roles at Denver's smallish, newish Museum of Contemporary Art, including that of director and chief curator. She doesn't put together every show at MCA, but she does organize the vast majority of them. In fact, it was her rep...

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

    The redevelopment of Stapleton International Airport by mega-developer Forest City has been surprisingly successful. The town center at 29th Avenue and Quebec Street is very nice, being the best-designed of the many ersatz downtowns that have sprung ...

    Womanly Mamet - The Denver Center's Boston Marriage is fine folly.

    For the entire first act, the Denver Center Theatre Company's Boston Marriage is pure enjoyment. It's light and fast, and the language is dizzying -- clever and cleverly self-punctuating. The plot concerns two nineteenth- century women who live toget...

    Harried Holiday - The Long Christmas Ride Home is a promising work in progress.

    Paula Vogel's The Long Christmas Ride Home begins as a tart-tender look at an overworked topic -- the way family dynamics become exacerbated, for good or ill, at Christmas time -- and ends up floundering in sentimentality. The play's defining feature...

    Wings of Change - Bas Bleu's Perestroika continues the excellence of the Angels saga.

    No question, the Angel at the center of Tony Kushner's Angels in America is a tricky creature -- neither divine nor malevolent, sometimes comical, highly sexual. She's not any old angel, either, but the angel of America, which accounts for the freque...

    Separate Ways - Chuck Parson and Emilio Lobato follow different paths to formalist abstraction.

    I've been pretty tough on Jerry Gilmore, chief curator and director of the art program at the Arvada Center, because he seemed to model his behavior on that of the proverbial bull in a china shop. Soon after he took over a few years ago, for example,...

    Sketchy Stuff - Buntport's Macblank, while funny, feels like an extended skit.
