    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...

    Biercesome Foursome

    A whole section of seats has been removed at the Theatre at Jack's to make way for the Civil War as only American journalist and author Ambrose Bierce could envision it--and as only CityStage Ensemble would stage it. Bitten by a Snake is creator/dire...

    Little Rickeys

    It was in mid-March that Paul Hughes, director of the venerable, twenty-something Inkfish Gallery, announced that he would mount an in-depth exhibit of thirty mostly small works by New York-based kinetic sculptor George Rickey. That fine exhibit, Geo...

    Hills-a-Poppin'

    It's the music that matters most in Appalachian Strings. But the vibrant production now at the Denver Center Theatre Company is also a history, both of "hillbilly" music and of the people of Appalachia. The writing in this engaging piece is sometimes...

    Lady in Waiting

    There may be more people on stage than in the audience, but the crowded space in the small Dorie Theatre is alive with ferocious goofiness in The Madwoman of Chaillot. Dated and simplistic as Jean Giraudoux's 1945 tale may be, it still carries the mo...

    ...and Tuning In

    And now for some socially redeeming theater: Ojibwa Indian poet and playwright Tomson Highway's poignant contemporary exploration of Native American life, The Rez Sisters, at the Ralph Waldo Emerson Center. Once in a while a play comes along tha...

    Tuning Out ...

    Film critics used to grouse about how stage plays never really transfer well to the screen--at least until Kenneth Branagh started transforming Shakespeare into cinema. And yet a well-written play provides smart dialogue, even when the setting is too...

    Heavy Metal

    Denver's really starting to look and act like a big city. The traffic in town is getting worse by the day. There's no place to park either downtown or in Cherry Creek. And we now have a Mark di Suvero sculpture, "Lao Tzu," sited on Acoma Plaza at the...

    Garden Pests

    Unlike in many American cities, just about every tree, shrub, plant and vine in Denver has been planted and cared for by someone. As early as the 1880s, people were bringing blue spruce trees down from the mountains and planting them among the scrub ...

    Doing Reps

    "Two planks and a passion" is how Christopher Selbie describes the kind of theater he believes in--theater that emphasizes the art of acting, the imagination of the actor, and the imagination of the viewer. Four years ago Selbie formed the Compass Th...

    Spaces Loaded

    Spring is here, and that can mean only one thing in the art world--you can't find a parking space on gallery row in LoDo. When the Rockies take over Wazee Street, plenty of fans park at the two-hour meters that line the street. They can count on...

    Yanks for the Memories

    We've had a lot of little devils hoofing it on the Denver boards recently--Beethoven 'N' Pierrot, Lucifer Tonite and the Jerry Lewis rendition of Damn Yankees have come and gone from local theaters since December. Beethoven's devil was a sophisticate...

    Big Babies

    Movies about parenthood tend to exaggerate the icky-diaper issues. Over the last few years, a new emphasis on Dad's role in a baby's life have produced a slew of sentimental foolishness like Look Who's Talking, Three Men and a Baby, Junior and the in...

    My Baloo Heaven

    A terrific set and wonderful lighting design help set the mood in the Arvada Center's Jungalbook, a worthy adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling children's story. In a mysterious green jungle somewhere in India, a little man-cub is born and abandone...

    Love Hangover

    Men are incapable of fidelity, integrity or profound affection--and they're shallow to boot. Frantic for validation, women backstab each other over worthless guys, dump and are dumped over the slightest cause and would be better off learning to make ...

    Western Expansion

    It's an unexpected stroke of luck to find three of the most important cultural institutions in the mountain West conveniently lined up in a row along Denver's Civic Center complex. And you could hardly miss the Colorado History Museum, the Denver Pub...

    Sam's Club

    If only Sam Shepard had never gone to Hollywood. He was such an amazing playwright before fame, fortune and Jessica Lange got ahold of him. Why area theater companies don't produce his early plays more often is a mystery; they're beautiful, weird and...

    Star Attraction

    Bertolt Brecht remains one of the few great geniuses of twentieth-century theater. Marxist didacticism notwithstanding, his best plays set up contradictions upon contradictions that shake us awake and require us to think poetically. Because finally, ...
