    Enchanted Evening - Denver Center gives Blithe Spirit an airy outing.

    In many ways Noel Coward's life's work was being a blithe spirit -- and an intensely elegant one at that. An actor, writer and composer of songs, he was as much known for his suave persona as for his hilarious plays. He wrote Blithe Spirit in 1941, w...

    Tragic Comedy - Uneven direction adds flaws to risky Merchant of Venice.

    Although it's a comedy, The Merchant of Venice is far darker than such sunny Shakespearean offerings as Much Ado About Nothing and A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's also a difficult piece for modern audiences because of the central figure of Shylock. S...

    Land Minds - The environment has inspired some of the state's best artists.

    Putting together a coherent art show is difficult, and so many of the shows I see -- even some of the good ones -- don't exactly make sense. Imagine, then, how rare it is to find not one, but three shows that all make sense. And not only that, but th...

    Shooting Blanks - Columbine-based Bingo Boyz targets the obvious.

    The massacre at Columbine High School has been so intensively covered in the media -- minutely dissected when it first occurred, rehashed with every newly uncovered fragment of information and on every yearly anniversary -- that it's hard to figure o...

    Deaf Jam - Wiggy Hairspray is pleasing to the eye, but hard on the ear.

    It was too loud. That was, I'm afraid, my prevailing impression of Hairspray. It was so loud that periodically I stuck my fingers in my ears. So loud that when a performer began one of those songs that starts low and intense, I found myself coweri...

    No More Wussies - Or, why Tom Hanks isn't Steve Guttenberg

    Tom Hanks is who Tom Hanks is today because of something he did about 14 years ago. One afternoon, Hanks walked into his agent's office and told the man who takes 10 percent, "I don't want to play pussies anymore." He had spent the better part of the...
