    Comedy and Errors

    There's not much point in staging a stodgily reverential, doublet-and-hose version of William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. The slapstick piece about two sets of twins separated at birth is patterned after a Roman-comedy model that was hackneye...

    Ride 'Em, Cowgirl

    Brimming with the ingratiating sentiment of a John Ford movie and radiating with the honeyed elegance of an Albert Bierstadt painting, The Girl of the Golden West works its charms gradually, culminating in a touching finale that lends a heartwarming ...

    Insults and Injuries

    Mary Chenoweth, who died on January 14, at the age of eighty, was one of the most important and accomplished artists to ever have worked in Colorado. But that's not the impression you'll get from the ineptly arranged and incompetently organized memor...

    Critical Exclaim

    London Calling

    The Slime of Our Lives

    A few years before the entertainment business became the state religion, off-Broadway playwright Sam Shepard wrote Angel City, a surreal satire about Hollywood's gangrenous grip on the American national character. A wicked and prescient take on the s...

    Mother of Confusion

    The Shock of the Now

    As we near the end of the 1900s, it's interesting to notice that the world of the visual arts is wide open, with a staggering profusion of artistic visions. Quite literally, anything goes. There are so many competing styles, ranging from straight tra...

    To the Max

    The Rule Modern and Contemporary Gallery is currently featuring the compelling show Carl Andre and Melissa Kretschmer, which pairs a handful of Andre's recent sculptures with Kretschmer's hard-edged tar-on-glass paintings. Both artists share basic ae...

    The Mother Load

    Although this year's Colorado Women Playwrights' Festival explores unsettling and disturbing subjects, the first of two festival programs marks a significant improvement over last season's feeble offerings. Despite a few logistical headaches (like st...

    Mind Over Manor

    The Morrison Theatre's unflinching production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest starts the minute theatergoers enter the cozy town hall that serves as the community group's performing space. As Lawrence Welk-like tunes play in the background, the pa...

    Don't Flinch

    Much of the public discussion concerning the Columbine High School massacre has swirled about in a cauldron of controversy. The memorial service was too secular, too religious or too political. Howard Stern's incendiary (and stupid) remarks were seen...

    A Day at the Scheme Park

    Midway through Act One of Kingdom, it becomes clear that Richard Hellensen's play about a corrupt theme-park company is as much an indictment of popular taste as it is a rebuke of the soulless purveyors of mass-merchandised shlock. Bringing to mind t...

    They Have His Number

    Guido Contini's inability to separate his art from his personal life is what both tortures and inspires him--at least that's what he maintains throughout the musical Nine. The brilliant Italian filmmaker freely admits that his insatiable appetite for...

    The Hollywood Shuffle

    Star-Crossed Blunders

    Mud and Guts

    More than any other medium, ceramics has achieved a high level of artistic development in Colorado. The glorious early history of ceramics here was partly determined by the availability of high-quality clay. Beginning in the 1890s, potters from ...
