    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.

    I was really worried about contemporary art at the end of the twentieth century. Things were looking bleak, as public support was clearly on the wane. The art magazines and the art establishment were no help, either, since both were filled with the n...

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

    Marivaux's The Triumph of Love is an eighteenth-century play, but it contains elements reminiscent of Shakespeare's work, which was written more than a century earlier: the spunky heroine who dresses as a man in order to pursue her beloved; the haven...

    Masterpiece Theater - Inventing van Gogh is flooded with compelling imagery and ideas.

    Steven Dietz's Inventing van Gogh unleashes a torrent of ideas about art, possibly enough for a dozen plays. The words are so evocative and so many, the set and lighting so lusciously colored and the acting so selfless that the experience of watching...

    Not since the 1960s has there been so much aesthetic interest in popular culture. It all began a decade ago, when many contemporary artists grew tired of formalism and expressionism and began picking up on the pop-related styles of a previous generat...
