    Oy Story

    Exuberant musicals are the Country Dinner Playhouse's stock-in-trade, though sometimes that exuberance can seem forced. The most recent show at the Playhouse, 42nd Street, was a terrific, bouncy re-creation of a 1930s extravaganza and the best thing ...

    Holy Moly

    The frailties of human nature were meat and drink to Moliere. His comedies live on because they so cleverly skewered hypocrisy, pretentiousness and ego-driven stupidity, and his sense of the absurd is just as relevant now as it ever was. This year th...

    Curtains

    Since last year, New York-based conceptual guru Christo and his sidekick Jeanne-Claude have virtually taken up residence on the Front Range. First there was that show of drawings and collages at One/West in Fort Collins in the summer of 1995. Then, i...

    Dead on Arrival

    Capital punishment is on everybody's mind these days, what with Timothy McVeigh's conviction and JonBenet's murderer still on the loose. So the regional premiere of Colorado playwright David Hall's The Quality of Mercy is timely enough. And CityStage...

    Wings and a Prayer

    Playwright Tony Kushner took on an astounding feat when he wrote Angels in America. The six-and-a-half-hour play consists of two parts--"The Millennium Approaches," in which everything begins to come undone, and "Perestroika," in which all of the pla...

    Above the Fray

    The current revival of 1920s and '30s academic surrealism has grown into an international school of contemporary painting, and it has local legs that stretch back to the 1970s. Its adherents employ traditional painting genres such as landscapes, port...

    On the Rise

    Chip Walton is one of the brightest young talents to crash the Denver theater scene in years. He's an accomplished actor who made an elegant, riveting Salieri two years ago in the Aurora Fox's Amadeus. But Walton's special gift is for directing. He h...

    Crack Pots

    The fine arts almost never get sucked into mass culture's real Internet--television. And when art does land in the TV spotlight, it usually suffers. Typically, there are three circumstances in which an event in the world of the visual arts will ...

    Czar Talk

    The best comedies are serious business. The whole spectrum of human frailty is meat and drink for the great comic writers, and it takes a profound intelligence to make us laugh at human beastliness. Nikolay Vasilyevich Gogol, a nineteenth-century Rus...

    Costume Drama

    Theatre on Broadway's Whoop Dee Doo! is a lot like a good fat-free dessert: Flavorful while you're tasting it, but so light it doesn't stay with you. This cheeky musical revue from the late Broadway costume designer Howard Crabtree is well-done--the ...

    In Living Black and White

    It's quite unusual for Denver's gallery-goers to be treated to more than one good photography show at a time. But this spring, interesting shows are popping up the way dandelions are sprouting on lawns. At Camera Obscura--where good things are always...

    Stout Stuff - With the end of Nebula 9, Jim Stout is ready to step out on his own.

    Since 1992, Nebula 9 has been Colorado's best (and most popular) electronic-dance duo. But no more. At a time when the rest of the country finally seems to be catching up with the act's style of music, the team of Jim Stout and Julian Bradley has spl...

    I, Robert

    It's been a long wait, but the Roundfish Theatre Company is back, bold and brassy, with Bobology. These three short one-acts by Denver playwright James R. Cannon present an absurdist attack on economic, political and religious fascism. And though the...

    Playing the Anglicans

    Anyone who's ever been to Christmas mass at St. John's Episcopal Cathedral in Denver knows that the church is what the theater wishes it were. It has drama, mystery, joy, a sense of the tragic, a joke or two and, at its best, a feeling of transcenden...

    Do the White Thing

    All that bastardization of African-American music by white rock-and-rollers produced some terrific stuff. But white pop music is pasty indeed compared to original rhythm-and-blues masters like Aretha Franklin, Chuck Berry and Little Richard. The rock...
