    BRITTLE WOMEN

    Four women inhabit a mansion in hell (provincial France circa the 1930s), and the horror they experience there is as dark as it gets on earth. Wendy Kesselman's relentless exploration of class hatred and oppression in My Sister in This House amounts ...

    SUGAR RUSH

    It doesn't matter how sappy the music is, the kids are what sells Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic The Sound of Music. The Country Dinner Playhouse's revival features seven terrific kids, and every time they're on stage, the whole production lifts a...

    OKIE DOKE

    Humorist and movie star Will Rogers made political satire a gentle art. The Oklahoma country boy once said he never met a man he didn't like, and that kindly sentiment even governed the way he skewered politicians. The Will Rogers Follies celebrates ...

    MOVING MOUNTAINS

    The husband-and-wife team of Tracy and Sushe Felix emerged from the free-for-all that was 1980s art in Colorado. The Manitou Springs couple was associated with a hip, cartoonlike approach that was part and parcel of the neo-expressionism that dominat...

    LOCAL ZERO

    When a scumbag becomes a TV talk-show celebrity, the world is in trouble. And so English playwright Alan Ayckbourn skewers the cult of the celebrity, the mendacity of television and the public's infinite appetite for manipulative trash in Man of the ...

    KILLING TIME

    Intense, ingenious and shocking, Steven Dietz's God's Country is also appallingly timely. After the Oklahoma bombing and all the recent press about so-called patriot militias, a powerful play about the murder of liberal Jewish radio talk-show host Al...

    LOCAL COLOR

    The Mackey Gallery is as filled with color as a spring garden. But bright hues are about the only common ground shared by the two very different artists on display. Lynn Heitler's work falls readily within the tradition of abstract expressionism....

    NAKED CITY

    Two respected Denver artists, Dan Ragland and Bill Stockman, offer more reasons to respect them, with new work displayed in separate exhibits at the Grant Gallery. Most of Ragland's somber, mixed-media pieces started out as Polaroids. Although th...

    SIX APPEAL

    A lot of cultural pretensions are examined in David Ives's hilarious collection of six playlets, All in the Timing--mostly in bursts of brilliant and sometimes surreal parody. Though none too deep, this offbeat offering is still right on, and the Ger...

    THE ZECKENDORF FOLLIES

    It's hard for those who love art to understand why some would seek it out only to destroy it. What is the motive of the vandal who slashes a painting or defaces a sculpture? Is he deranged? It's different with architecture. No one would consider ...

    CAPTIVE AUDIENCE

    What books would you bring to a desert island if, heaven forbid, you were condemned to one? What single luxury would you bring to ease the loneliness and discomfort of such an imprisonment? These are the questions asked by three captives in Someone W...

    FOLLOW THE BOUNCING BALL

    Our society has never afforded organized athletics the social status granted to those things ordinarily called culture: music, dance, theater, literature or the visual arts. But that distinction was unknown in the pre-Columbian cultures of Mesoameric...

    FAMILY AFIRE

    Just when you think it's safe to go to the theater, Christopher Durang shows up somewhere and disturbs all your complacencies. Brilliant, amusing, incisive and ultimately humane, Durang's caustic assessments of American life and Catholic upbringing m...

    COSMOS TOPPER

    According to the first version of the war in heaven, Michael and his angels fought, and Satan fell like lightning from the sky. God won. Not so in Jose Rivera's apocalyptic Marisol, in which God loses, in part because he's already allowed all hell to...

    DON'T SAY "CHEESE"

    The power of still photography to inspire deep emotional response was well-demonstrated two weeks ago in Oklahoma City. Adrift in a sea of video, it was the perfectly framed image of a heroic firefighter cradling the body of a dying child that hit th...

    GHOST BUSTERS

    At the end of Hamlet, the stage is littered with bodies. Lee Blessing's Fortinbras picks up where Shakespeare left off, putting a hilarious new spin on where those bodies are buried. The wit is wry and the characters involving in this lively producti...

    GAY WATCH

    Mart Crowley's The Boys in the Band, a breakthrough drama first performed in 1968, is dated in some ways but still packs a punchy--and universal--message. The play has very definite problems, but a strong production now at the Theatre on Broadway und...

    DRESSING FOR DINNER

    Denver artist Linde Schlumbohm can't stop thinking about food--she's virtually obsessed with the topic. In What's Eating Eve?, her fourth annual exhibit at the Pirate co-op gallery, there are references to edibles everywhere: plants and animals, supe...

    HIGH NOTES

    What you want from a farce is to laugh at yourself and everyone else whose self-absorption gets them into trouble. And you want the protagonist, however ridiculous he is, to triumph in the end. The lively Lend Me a Tenor at the Aurora Fox is divertin...
