    Kiss of Death

    Larry Kramer is perhaps best known as a pugnacious sort who regularly vilifies the editors of the New York Times and intimidates genteel talk-show hosts like Charlie Rose. In 1985, though, the gay activist and co-founder of ACT-UP (the AIDS Coalition...

    Bard Games

    The rising tide of William Shakespeare's popularity reached its high-water mark recently with the hit movie Shakespeare in Love, a delightful tale that reshaped the Bard's image from that of a paunchy though brilliant literary lion to one of a hot-bl...

    Coming of Age

    The Denver Art Museum has gotten good at attracting crowds. The blockbuster Toulouse-Lautrec, which just closed, brought in more than 100,000 visitors. And last year, the Berger Collection had similar success with a comparable attendance. Thousands o...

    Give My Regards

    These days, musical blockbusters are marked by their star-studded casts, syrupy storylines and truckloads of extravagant scenery. That's why a fifty-year-old ensemble piece like Kurt Weill's Street Scene seems destined to remain mothballed under...

    Sit on It

    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...

    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

    A college professor turned full-time party host purses his lips to mitigate his simpering enthusiasm. He declares that in Denver, throwing the bash of the season requires more than just careful planning, flawless execution and a politically correct g...

    The Slime of Our Lives
