    Hard Luck of the Irish - The Crimson Thread falls a wee bit short in its epic presentation of immigrants.

    The first scene of The Crimson Thread, currently showing at the Arvada Center, is somewhat promising, though it does have a bit of that golden-sunlight, Hallmark-card feeling about it. Mary Hanes's writing is lyrical but rarely revelatory. The year i...

    Blah Bas Bleu - The Fort Collins company fails to squeeze any juice from Death of a Salesman.

    In the last few years, Bas Bleu has become a beacon of theatrical inventiveness and energy in Fort Collins. Play selection is always intelligent and sometimes daring, and execution is usually exemplary. The company began this season with an ambitious...

    Cyrano. The trouble with Heritage Square's Cyrano is that the company has abandoned the hybrid style that's all its own -- one that involves wild improvisation and lots of audience participation -- and decided instead to play the story of the long-n...

    Firing Line - A salute to the late, great James McKinnell, a master of Colorado ceramics.

    It's hard to think of James McKinnell, whom everyone called Jim, without also thinking of his wife and artistic collaborator for more than fifty years, Nan McKinnell. Nonetheless, we are going to have to get used to the idea of one without the other,...

    Jolly Good - Germinal's Habeas Corpus is a rollicking British sex farce.

    I think of Alan Bennett as a chronicler of the lives of those inhabiting a certain stratum of British society: lonely, middle-class people, conventional, self-conscious and always slightly embarrassed at themselves, like the monologuists of Talking H...

    War: What Is It Good For? - Not About Heroes offers a timely dose of combat's horrors.

    In a culture where popular definitions of manhood are as rigid and narrow as they are in the United States (real men chop down trees, play sports and don't drink lattes), the age-old ideal of the warrior-poet seems a contradiction in terms. Without q...

    Fresh Start - Looking back at the Central Library, looking ahead at the Civic Center.

    Although Denver has long been the largest city in Colorado, historically it was not the art-making center of the state. No, that distinction was held by Colorado Springs -- even before the launch of the Broadmoor Academy in 1918, which transformed th...

    Watered-Down Fun - Pinnacle's version of Rocky Horror is sour despite Sugar.
