    Now Playing - Brief reviews of current shows

    The King and I. Some of the problems with this production are inherent in the show itself. With its emphasis on strong women and abhorrence of anything resembling slavery, The King and I was progressive for its time, but no artist can entirely escap...

    The Impossible Bomb

    Serenity (Universal) Joss Whedon's film version of his TV series Firefly came and went like a lightning bug in October; the predicted phenom stuck around the multiplex just long enough to lose millions. But like Firefly, which sold enough boxed se...

    Loaded GUN - Activision brings the neo-western to videogames, genocide included.

    The myth of the Wild West has mutated over the past half-century. Where once we thrilled to the wholesome exploits of the Lone Ranger, now we wallow in the mesmerizing depravity of HBO's Deadwood. Film geeks can argue about when it started to chang...

    Unfolding Realities - There's new realism at the Mizel Center, a new spot for the Mizel Museum, and news at the DAM.

    Popera Songs Are Forgettable - The Arvada Center's well-staged Aida is sumptuous eye candy.

    There are two things to be said about this production of Aida, a rock-pop version of the Verdi opera with music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice. The first is that it's a shlocky, sentimental piece of theater, with sappy music and idiotic book an...

    Now Playing - Brief reviews of current shows

    A Christmas Carol. Written by Richard Hellesen with music by David de Berry, this Christmas Carol has its strengths. It's respectful of the novel, using much of Dickens's original dialogue and description to tell the tale of the miserly businessman, ...

    Marks-A-Lot - Dale Chisman's impressive career is on display at Rule.

    Many people -- if not most -- think of art and art writing as subjective enterprises. It's all a matter of taste; one person's trash is another's treasure. This thinking is partially right -- but mostly wrong. Like it or not, art is part of the objec...
