    The Naughty Professor

    The great thing about My Fair Lady is Pygmalion--the smash hit from 1914 that established George Bernard Shaw as England's premier playwright of the era. Lerner and Loewe's musical adaptation of that stageplay, while not quite hardcore Shaw, is saucy...

    Fully Installed

    The distinction between sculpture and installation is a blurry one--and that makes sense, given that the two mediums are both essentially concerned with artfully occupying space. Many local contemporary sculptors and installation artists test the bou...

    Come As You Aria

    Grand opera, like crime movies and modern tragedy, is largely peopled by sluts and scalawags. Big, blustery sins are committed and paid for, and the spectacle is thrilling. Often the innocent get mowed down in the process (usually as part of the naug...

    Encore

    A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. The Physically Handicapped Amateur Musical Actors League (PHAMALy) takes on Stephen Sondheim's bawdy musical with energetic glee. Some of director Don Bill's choices may offend--he goes a bit too far ov...

    Summer Vocations

    Summer is typically the time for the art world to put up its collective feet and relax. But that hasn't been the case this year, when June and July have been chock-full of exciting and interesting art events. You'd think it was October already--ordin...

    Slaves to Love

    The Physically Handicapped Amateur Musical Actors League (PHAMALy) has launched another hit--a lively production of Stephen Sondheim's bawdy musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. This time, director Don Bill's experiments get outrag...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...
