    Modern Classics - With Olitski and Rauschenberg, Denver gets a double dose of the big time.

    It's safe to say that no matter when you go to the Singer Gallery at the Mizel Center for Arts and Culture, there's always something worth seeing. But to describe the current offering as being merely worthwhile would be a major understatement, becaus...

    Plain Frayn - Alarms & Excursions serves up some sketchy comedy.

    Michael Frayn has to be one of the cleverest writers alive. He's responsible for the brain-teasing profundity of Copenhagen, a play that examines the race for the atom bomb during World War II in the context of a visit by Werner Heisenberg, then work...

    Book of Days. Lanford Wilson's Book of Days is a bitter exegesis of life in small-town America; the cast serves as narrator and chorus. At its heart is a murder. The play tells us that life in this country has been corrupted on every level and in al...

    Mexican Heritage - Paintings of colonial Mexico are showcased in the DAM's current blockbuster.

    There's an important exhibit at the Denver Art Museum that's being given the royal treatment, which makes sense, because it's filled with regal pieces. The blockbuster is Painting a New World: Mexican Art and Life, 1521-1821, a mammoth endeavor that ...

    Small Town Downer - Lanford Wilson's genius draws blanks in Book of Days.

    I've been a fan of Lanford Wilson's work ever since I saw one of his early one-acts at the legendary Caffe Cino in New York in the mid-1960s. It might have been This Is the Rill Speaking, and I think it played in tandem with Sam Shepard's Icarus's Mo...

    Badly Dated - Empty talk undercuts a serious subject in Boy Gets Girl.

    I'm absolutely mystified by the weakness of this script. Playwright Rebecca Gilman has won awards and been praised in all the right places. Although it had problems, I rather liked her Spinning Into Butter, which was produced at the Denver Center a c...

    Plaids and Solids - Post-minimalism is all the rage at + Zeile/Judish.

    Turning Tables - Germinal's stylized Triumph of Love dissects l'amour.
