    Verdi Requiem

    French novelist Alexandre Dumas wrote The Lady of the Camellias as a tribute to a young lover he admired and lost when she died at the age of 22, burned out by high living and the scourge of the age, consumption. Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi kept ...

    Clever Crafting

    When ceramic artist Maynard Tischler arrived in Denver from back East in 1966 to interview for a job in the art department at the University of Denver, he came away with a mixed reaction. Though he liked the sunshine out west, he wasn't so thrilled t...

    Cro-Magnon Force

    Men are from Mars, women are from Venus, and most self-help books about the battle of the sexes are written by space cadets. Since many of these tomes are also about what losers men are when it comes to their treatment of women, comedian Rob Becker t...

    Basso Profoundo

    Playwright Joan Ackermann makes sense out of the commonplace. In last summer's biggest local hit, Stanton's Garage, she wove the eccentricities of unremarkable men and women into a thoroughly involving slice of life. Zara Spook and Other Lures, also ...

    Art of the State

    That an art collection even exists at the University of Colorado in Boulder became known to the general public only thirteen years ago. And the circumstances for the revelation couldn't have been more embarrassing: a newspaper report that CU's multi-...

    Suffer the Children

    In order to make the world safe for theater, children have to be initiated in its mysteries now. Everybody in the business knows this, and strides have been made on the local scene to create theater suitable for children and families--like the splend...

    High Notes

    Dale Chisman has long been known as an artist's artist. For proof, look to the fact that several well-known local artists are among the collectors who've snapped up Chisman originals from his new show at 1/1 Gallery. Chisman is principally known...

    The 100-Year Itch

    Sure, it's based on a loopy premise, but Lerner and Loewe's Brigadoon still attracts audiences in droves. It's most likely to appeal to family audiences: Kids under twelve go for the magic, while their grandparents appreciate the show's optimistic im...

    Hades Man

    Legendary skirt-chaser Don Juan gets his in the end--at least in most of the versions of the famous story. And after seducing all those women, he would seem to deserve to burn in hell. But what if hell is a very pleasant sort of place--a kind of cont...

    Four by Four

    There's an old joke about the University of Colorado in Boulder: A visitor to the beautiful Italian-style campus asks a student how to find the art building, and the student replies, "It's the ugly one." Ah, the contradictions of the art world. ...

    All That Chazz

    Humor doesn't get any darker than Chazz Palminteri's Faithful--at least not without getting sickening. But unlike many purveyors of black comedies, the tough-guy actor-turned-playwright manages to raise the audience's spirits by play's end, much as W...

    Frida Ole

    Industrial Arts Theatre continues to expand Denver's theatrical horizons with the first of what it hopes will be a long series of Colorado Women Playwrights Festivals. Running in repertory are two "programs"; the first features a full-length play, al...

    Enchantment Land

    Is it the bright clear light, the product of endless chains of cloudless days? Or is it perhaps the rugged scenery? Maybe it's the history, mystery and charm of the ancient indigenous peoples. Whatever the reason, New Mexico has attracted accomplishe...

    Beach Blanket Lingo

    Surf's up, Shakespeare. Tweaking the Bard is the latest rage on the stage--witness Theatre on Broadway's current compressed version of his "compleat works"--and the Denver Center Theatre Company is hanging ten with its new production of The Comedy of...

    Albee Damned

    Dealing with the death of a mother is a wrenching experience for children--to say nothing of Mum herself. And that's where playwright Edward Albee hooks you in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Three Tall Women: It's hard not to reflect on your own family a...

    Rare Editions

    It was in the fall of 1995 that Robert Motherwell, the great New York School artist who died in 1991, gained a special place in the hearts and minds of Denver art lovers. That's when the Denver Art Museum worked out a special deal with the Dedalus Fo...

    Selling Avon

    Fast and funny, The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged) skewers the Bard and honors him, too. In fact, the more you love Shake-speare, the more amused you're likely to be by this jolly nonsense, now in its regional premiere. The comedy, which re...

    Do the Wrong Thing

    True story: A young seminary instructor was discussing the nature of evil in his class when a woman raised her hand and told him she did not believe in evil. "Really?" he said. "What do you call Auschwitz?" The student replied, "Well, it's evil for m...

    No Strings Attached

    The only way to describe playwright August Wilson's Seven Guitars is with superlatives: Wilson's writing is inspired, and Israel Hicks's casting and direction is nothing short of brilliant. The night I saw the show, it received a standing ovation fro...
