    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 ...

    TOP MARKS

    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...

    FULL HOUSE

    Many galleries go the route of the easy-to-do group show in the month of December, because it provides viewers with a wide variety of potential gift selections and because the holidays are overflowing with other kinds of seasonal events. Only during ...

    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...

    PROCESS THEATER, BEFORE...AND AFTER

    They're baaaack. With the just-opened Beethoven 'N' Pierrot, Czech director Pavel Dobrusky and Norwegian counterpart Per-Olav Sorensen have once again brought "process theater" to the Denver Center Theatre Company. The first of their offbeat pieces--...

    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...

    ALL HEART

    The first of many holiday shows, She Loves Me may well turn out to be this season's best. This delightfully quirky musical has been given a delicious, intimate staging by the South Suburban Theatre Company, with a charming cast, fine direction and a ...

    FOAM HOME

    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...

    REMEMBRANCES

    Russell Beardsley's sculptures, wall reliefs, mixed-media pieces and an installation are interspersed with Debra Goldman's photos and photo-constructions in the current show at the Mackey Gallery. Though there are few obvious similarities between Bea...

    GORGEOUS GEORGE

    George Gershwin's pop tunes hold up after all these years. Tunes like "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and "But Not for Me" have beautiful melodies and jazzy energies that are still capable of knocking your socks...

    KING ME

    Purists may blanch at director Jeremy Cole's adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, but the adventurous revision has much to say to us. It's not perfect, but this production by the Cattlecall theater troupe is intense, knowing, and never dull. As t...

    UNDER A CHEEVER

    In his many short stories, John Cheever skimmed the surface of bourgeois American family life, laying bare the pretensions of suburban culture and dissecting the hopelessness of its materialism in nicely served, if thin, slices of life. In A Cheever ...

    LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE

    John Patrick Shanley's poignant Danny and the Deep Blue Sea is a three-scene argument for love--the kind of love between a man and a woman that penetrates individual isolation via mutual kindness. And it's delivered in an unusual package as persuasiv...

    IN THE FLESH

    It's almost impossible to put on Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice today; if one excises the loathsome anti-Semitism from the play, one can't help but do violence to its original meaning. Laurence Olivier managed to virtually reconstruct the play'...
