    I LOVE LUCIFER

    Angels and devils hover in the local theater this season--and it's about time. First the Broadway road show Angels in America graced the Auditorium Theatre last fall with its tale of God in retreat. Now we have Lucifer Tonite, by Denver's most intens...

    LONESOME WHISTLE

    August Wilson is one of America's great playwrights. His rage, his humor and his humanity find their deepest expression in the construction of character; plot is not the point. Yet each of his plays tells a compelling story, and each story moves us b...

    COLD COMFORT

    The dead of winter is the last time one would expect to find an art show with most of the work exhibited outdoors. Surely only a lunatic--or, at the very least, an oddball--would schedule such an event in the coldest and darkest time of the year. ...

    SHLOCK AROUND THE CLOCK

    You'll want to run through Shake, Rattle and Roll, the Colorado History Museum's--excuse the expression--"exhibit" on the 1950s. And then you'll want to run away as fast as you can. To say that this show is a total disaster barely hints at how ba...

    DIALING FOR DULLARDS

    If you're going to revive a period thriller as clunky and passionate as Dial "M" for Murder, for heaven's sake don't ignore the very elements that make it interesting--go for the noir! The road-show production of the classic 1950s murder mystery now ...

    LOST AND FOUND

    The public made unprecedented expenditures on public art and public buildings last year in Denver. But you wouldn't know it to look around. The biggest plum, both in terms of cost and lost opportunity, was Denver International Airport, born of th...

    TIME WARPED

    Sometimes a play can leap through the centuries and land gracefully in our midst. But it takes a crack cast to handle antiquated language forms and old-fashioned sentiments. To work really well, a revival must speak some fundamental truths about the ...

    DEVILED HAM

    The French loved him when America all but deserted him. But who cares what the French think? Now Jerry Lewis is enjoying a revival of public favor guaranteed to increase an already endless ego--fully displayed in the slick and (mostly) charming Damn ...

    How lucky Robin Rule must be. No sooner had she moved her namesake gallery from the Siberia of an off-street spot at the Icehouse in Lodo to her new location at Broadway and 1st Avenue, across the street from the Mayan Theater than her new neighbo...

    COMMUNITY CHESTNUT

    The most important community theater arises out of a community's need--and El Centro Su Teatro is a prime example of what the best community theater should be. Producing original plays in Spanish and English, Su Teatro draws on amateur and trained pe...

    JESUS, JOSEPH AND MERRY

    Most of the holiday shows now playing in Denver are secular pieces that capitalize on the season's frenetic nostalgia but have no commitment to its meaning. But there is one authentic Christmas piece in town: Black Nativity at Eulipions. The play...

    FRIENDLY PERSUASION

    One of the great art soap operas of the past year has been the acrimonious split between Open Press, the respected printmaking outfit, and CSK Gallery, one of the newer kids on Wazee Street. Since December 1993, the printmaker and the gallery had bee...

    THE BEAT GOES ON

    In the 1950s, when it seemed as if every artist in America was working in an abstract style, a handful of visionaries in the San Francisco area were creating to the beat of a different drummer. The "Beats," close cultural allies of the Beat poets, de...

    DRAGGIN' THE LINE

    Cross-gender performances are not all equal. When women play male characters, we tend to take them seriously. But when men play female roles, we can't help but laugh--it always looks like parody. CityStage Ensemble director David Quinn's version of R...

    AUNTIE ESTABLISHMENT

    Something about the Roaring Twenties still seems naughty--and in the best sense of the word. Maybe it's just nostalgia for a simpler time, but even the wild flappers, the speakeasies and the social experimentation had a much more innocent feel than o...

    Psycho Beach Party is yet another outrageous parody of B movies and pop psychology--and it's somewhat brighter and cleverer than most. The cast at Theatre on Broadway is right on down the line, but the show depends upon the ingenious antics of its st...
