    SIMPLY SIMON

    Sometimes a guy is better off when his wildest dreams don't come true. After all, when real life intrudes on fantasy, it can be most disappointing. So the hero finds out in Last of the Red Hot Lovers, playing at the RiverTree Theatre through Saturday...

    LOSING THE SPIRIT

    Charles Dickens understood the fine art of tearjerking. Nobody before or since could sentimentalize human virtue, family life or the death of a child with such unabashed exploitation and get away with it. But Dickens loved the rarer pleasures of ...

    WINGING IT

    Thieves and murderers can turn into comic heroes--even guardian angels. The result in My Three Angels at the Westminster Dinner Theatre is an intermittently divine comedy. The play proposes three miscreants as benevolent figures who watch over a ...

    BODY LANGUAGE

    The phrase "read you like a book" has some basis in fact: Most observers will agree that the human body can be read for meaning, much like a text. Some artists have taken the metaphor literally, concentrating on the direct representation of body part...

    THE MURAL MAJORITY

    Years before LoDo was a dull gleam in a developer's eye, northwest Denver's Highlands neighborhood shone as the city's unofficial arts district. Artists flocked to the area, drawn by cheap rent, urban convenience and choice hangouts like My Brother's...

    LADIES AND GENTLEMAN

    Beneath a thin (yet sturdy) veneer of respectability lies a nasty little secret at Ravenscroft manor. And when the handsome young footman of the house dies suddenly, falling to his death down the main stairway, it looks suspiciously like murder. The ...

    (CHRISTMAS) NIGHT COMING TENDERLY

    'Tis the season, yet very few professional theater companies take up the religious significance of Christmas. A good thing, too, since the majority would muck it up with insincere pretensions. But the fact that most theater companies can't do Christm...

    NATURE BOY

    Rivers have always presented a challenge for landscape artists. Their majesty, their mystery and, especially, their movement all resist a flat, two-dimensional rendering. Enter German artist Mario Reis, whose recently completed North American Nat...

    CHRISTMAS CHEERS

    They're baa-ack--the original cast (save one) of Denver's long-running Murder Most Fowl, that is. The play returns to the Avenue Theater this season as (A Very Merry) Murder Most Fowl. The plot's the same, but the jokes are all new, and the interacti...

    THE FEMINIST MISTAKE

    No matter where you stand on feminist issues, David Mamet's Oleanna at the Denver Center Theatre Company will tick you off. This is the kind of theater that sends you furious into the night--masterfully manipulative and absolutely scary. It's sca...

    GENDER FLEX

    The fad of pigeonholing art into politically correct categories has created a multitude of interesting genres. Some are lively and welcome inventions, such as Outsider Art, Latino Art or the recent Reclamation Art, where environmentally contaminated ...

    LET'S DO THE TWIST

    Whenever a great novel is turned into a play, something inevitably will be lost in the translation. When the play is also a musical, a lot more of the original evaporates into thin air to make room for the song and dance routines. The most one can ho...

    HYPOCRITICAL MASS

    Moliere's Tartuffe, now in a searingly funny production by CityStage Ensemble at Jack's Theater, takes on religious hypocrisy with such fervent zeal that it laid its original audience to waste. But then Moliere's patron, the "Sun King" Louis XIV, was...

    MIRROR IMAGES

    Denver artist Louis Recchia's raucous, jam-packed style has changed only slightly since he burst onto the Denver art scene in the early Eighties. And in Recchia's case, that's a positive: His trademark mirror-filled backgrounds, found-object tableaux...

    COLE, COLE HEART

    It may not run as smooth as brook water, but the production of Cole Porter's Anything Goes at the Country Dinner Playhouse sparkles with the sophisticated nonsense that made all those great Thirties musicals so endearing. Andrew Lloyd Webber and his ...

    OPERA STARS

    Gilbert and Sullivan turned comic opera into an extraordinary form of satire in their time. Tarantara! Tarantara! at the Denver Civic Theatre is a gleeful yet oddly dark tribute to the great team. Plays like H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance a...

    FINDERS' KEEPERS

    When Marcel Duchamp found an industrial bottle rack and proclaimed it art, he transformed fine art from an activity for a privileged few to one that everyone--and almost everything--can play. Almost eighty years later, people still delight in "fo...

    STUDENT BAWDY

    Farce can be insipid drivel or sublime madness, depending on the play and the wit of the director. Fortunately, Georges Feydeau's A Flea in Her Ear at the University of Colorado-Boulder is more sublime than insipid, more caustic madness than silly dr...

    ANCIENT HISTORY

    Lanford Wilson's The Mound Builders, now at the Theatre at Muddy's, exposes the murky side of scientific inquiry. Even professors of archaeology, we learn, can be despicable and put their egos before the well-being of others. It's a dirty job, but so...

    ALL TOGETHER NOW

    After a decade spent isolated in a Highlands barrio, Spark Gallery, the oldest of Denver's cooperative art spaces, gained a new lease on life two years ago with its move to the industrial-grunge neighborhood near the Paris on the Platte coffeehouse. ...
