    Selling Souls

    Roundfish Theatre Company is off to a fast start. The new group's taut, smart production of David Mamet's scathing indictment of American salesmanship gone awry, Glengarry Glen Ross, proves the new producers have guts--and taste. In this Pulitzer Pri...

    Changing Scenes

    The reputations of Pirate and Spark have been rehabilitated in recent years owing to the hard work of their members. Both of these co-op galleries are often the place to find intelligent art shows by accomplished local artists. Surely that's the case...

    China Doll

    The Denver Center Theatre Company's production of Bertolt Brecht's Galileo earlier this year was terrific, but it wasn't really Brecht. Much truer to the spirit of the radical German playwright is CityStage Ensemble's testy, uneven production of The ...

    Panhandle With Care

    Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II wrote their first show together in 1943, and Oklahoma! has proven to be one of the most influential musicals in the history of American theater. With Hammerstein's sentimental yet memorable lyrics and Rodgers'...

    Through the Years

    For the past six months, the Mackey Gallery has presented one large and raucous group show after another--out of character for a place that made its reputation presenting in-depth displays featuring only two or three artists. But it's apparent that h...

    All Geared Up

    We don't really understand our world. Flailing about in unsuitable relationships, many people really want a perfect blend of community and independence and just can't find it anywhere--except maybe at a place like Stanton's Garage, where life unexpec...

    Birth of a Notion

    When people think today of the Victorian era--if they think of it at all--they imagine a Dickensian world populated with polite yet insufferable prigs and upright if ignorant street urchins. But the latter half of the nineteenth century also marked t...

    Everything's Relative

    Extended families can be such a blessing--sometimes a mixed blessing, as two local theater productions remind us. American playwright Paul Osborn's charming, poignant comedy Morning's at Seven and Irish playwright Brian Friel's dismal drama Wonderful...

    Waller of Sound

    One of the great things about a show like Ain't Misbehavin' is its interactive dimension: The performers play directly to the audience members, who get to clap their hands and tap their feet in time with the boisterous, life-affirming music of Thomas...

    Freedom of Expressionism

    In its relatively short history, the Center for the Visual Arts, Metropolitan State College's gallery in LoDo, has celebrated the diversity of the art world. Sally Perisho, the center's founding director, has paid special attention to art by women, g...

    Tennessee After Dark

    A troubled mind struggling for decency, the neighborly hand held out to a wretched man--these are the elements of Tennessee Williams's The Night of the Iguana, for my money the most meaningful of all the great American playwright's works. Other Willi...

    Hallelujah Chorus

    Gospel, the musical form that arose at the turn of the century with Pentecostal revivalism in African-American churches, has had a lasting and profound effect on American music during its century-long evolution. While rhythm and blues and soul took o...

    Of Pea I Sing

    Musicals seem to be the one theatrical form in which outright silliness is not only acceptable but desirable. A farce has to have some underlying intelligence, some razor-sharp insight into manners and mores, in order to satisfy. But a musical needs ...

    Junior's Achievement

    Much of what makes us laugh in comedy arises out of pain. And Dale Stewart's subversive, poignant comedy Harvey's Boy is sore all over. However, there's nothing morbid or crass about this one-man show. Stewart's reminiscences about his childhood and ...

    Go Figure

    In spite of a century of modern art jam-packed with things like abstraction, minimalism and conceptualism, the venerable tradition of depicting the human figure in art has held on admirably. As the modernist twentieth century comes to a close, artist...

    Mind Bender

    He's midway through his solo exhibit at the Close Range Gallery of the Denver Art Museum, but Phil Bender still acts embarrassed about all the attention. In fact, Bender's taken an "Aw, shucks" approach--which works perfectly with his thick Texas dra...

    Worn Souls

    The archetypal story of Beauty and the Beast has taken many, many forms in practically every culture of the world. The most common of these involves a beautiful woman falling in love with a prince who has been hexed into ugliness. In other forms of t...

    Moon Mullings

    Part myth-making, part absurdist exercise, part political allegory and part youthful hell-raising, The Eclipse of Lawry, by Gwylym Cano, is fun, stimulating theater. It's hard to follow some of the dialogue, since the repartee rips rather fast and is...

    Sweeney...Why We Miss Him

    The construction of Denver International Airport has meant many things to many people. For most of us, DIA has meant an extra hour or two of travel just to get to and from the remote facility. To many who were more intimately involved, especially in ...

    Lemon Lime

    Anthony Zerbe is one terrific character actor. He has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows, as villains or good guys, disappearing into his roles and yet always remaining distinctly himself. I remember seeing his remarkable Richard III at the Ol...
