    The Wild West - Flaming Guns colors the stage a raucous red.

    Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage is a manic, farcical take on the myth of the West, mixed with a large dollop of gothic horror. Best of all, it's a genuinely clever, funny and outrageous script. Bits and pieces of things you've seen before float to th...

    Power Pinter - Puzzling No Man's Land remains emotionally grounded.

    We go to a play by Harold Pinter with certain expectations. We expect ambiguity, eloquent silences, language used like a scalpel or to parody literary convention and ordinary use. There won't be a plot, and the action will be puzzling, but it will in...

    Political Cartoons - African-American art is up at DU, while Mizel surveys the Jewish roots of the comics.

    Using politics to create art requires a skill for balancing aesthetics with philosophy, since political artwork must be visually successful while also conveying a message. The problem is that most artists can't pull it off -- something that's very ap...

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

    It's no secret that the alternative scene in Denver has been pretty flat for the past couple of years. But it looks as though Edge Gallery (3658 Navajo Street, 303-477-7173), an artists' cooperative, is forging a path out of these woods. Since the be...

    Blast From the Past - DCTC's adaptation of John Brown's Body stands tall.

    John Brown's Body isn't exactly a play; it doesn't have one absorbing plot line. Instead, it's an adaptation of Stephen Vincent Bent's famous 1928 epic poem about the Civil War, and, like all epics, it's a kind of episodic tapestry. There's chanting...
