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

    Peter Illig's solo (see review) is rocking the front of Pirate: a contemporary art oasis (3659 Navajo Street, 303-458-6058), making it a hard act to follow. Luckily for us, emerging artist Warren Kelly, whose show children's games is installed in the...

    Class Dismissed - The Student Prince could use a lesson in brevity.

    I suppose if I'd done my homework, I'd have been less disappointed by Central City Opera's production of The Student Prince. Other than a vague memory of some infectiously rousing drinking songs, I knew nothing about the operetta. I thought it would ...

    Antony and Cleopatra. Director Robert Benedetti states in the program notes that he has brought a Hollywood sensibility to this text, but the CU production remains stagnant and difficult to follow, perhaps because so many of the actors garble their ...

    Tear-Jerker Ending? - The Bonfils/Lowenstein Theater, a beloved Denver landmark, may be in danger of demolition.

    Members of the Denver City Council and community leaders have been talking a lot lately about improving East Colfax Avenue. And I have to admit, even if I love the honky-tonk character of the street -- and I do -- it does look pretty shabby in places...

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

    A few years ago, University of Colorado regents made the rash decision to abandon the school's Health Sciences Center campus in east Denver and move it to the Fitzsimons campus in Aurora. As illogical as that idea was, there's no second-guessing i...

    A Pain in the Asp - Colorado Shakespeare Festival's Antony and Cleopatra stumbles.

    I'd like to write one of those judicious "on the one hand this, on the other hand that" reviews of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's Antony and Cleopatra. I'd like to draw attention to sparks of life and ingenuity, fine moments in the major perform...

    Cabaret. Cabaret is grim and distressing, and there's not a hint of redemption anywhere in it. Quite the contrary. But this is a bloody good production, the kind of production that could -- and should -- attract all kinds of people who might never t...

    New Directions - CSFAC president Michael De Marsche is shaking things up.

    There are a number of noteworthy changes under way at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Now, surely I'm not the only person in the area who cringes when the word "change" is used in the same sentence as "Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center." Other...

    Timely, Sometimes - Shakespeare Festival's Victorian-era Romeo and Juliet hits and misses.

    Joel Fink's Romeo and Juliet at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival could have been called The Nurse and Mercutio Show, because those two characters almost romped off with the play. Okay, that's a bit reductive. The production had other strengths and f...

    Dark, Yet Moving - First-rate Cabaret is not Boulder Dinner Theatre's normal fare.

    There's the occasional salacious gesture in Cabaret, a vanishing flash of naked butt, a blurring of sexual "isms" -- homo, tran, pan, hetero, who cares? -- a lost and libidinous leading lady who has an abortion. But I don't think that's what is keepi...
