    Song of the Sleuth

    Agatha Christie's wonderful murder mystery Ten Little Indians showed up in the movies as And Then There Were None to creep out several generations of fans. The 1970s musical spoof of Christie's original, Something's Afoot, adds another dimension of m...

    Earthly Delights

    It may be tempting for viewers to lump all abstract paintings that feature drips, runs, scratches and splashes into the abstract-expressionist camp. But look before you leap to any conclusions. Making the point that not all expressionist abstracts ar...

    London Galling

    Inside a moral vacuum is a bad place to be: Not only is it fraught with violence and suffering, it's boring, too. But somehow that boredom is conveyed without boring the audience in The Lida Project's consuming production of Edward Bond's notorious...

    Free Willy

    Materialism is destructive, especially when its false ideals lodge in the breast of a man who is too good for them. In director Jeremy Cole's beautifully realized staging of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman's wrenching descent into ma...

    Repertory Glory

    However extravagant it may seem to say so, Ad Hoc's production of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters is simply fabulous--hauntingly beautiful and ultimately even inspiring. It's not perfect, because not all the actors are equally gifted. But those imperfe...

    Down New Mexico Way

    Given Colorado's relatively small population and isolation from the centers of American culture, the high level of art the state has supported over the years is nothing short of amazing. In fact, there's only one thing that prevents Colorado from dom...

    Wizards of Schnoz

    The archetypal tale of Beauty and the Beast takes many cultural forms. In all of them, a "beast" loves a "beauty," wins her love and is then saved by her love from the curse that turned him into a beast. Edmond Rostand's flagrantly romantic version o...

    BOLDER BOULDER

    So recently has the Boulder Art Center been renamed the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art--it was only last spring--that the new metro phone books still list it by its former moniker. That's a shame, because we should try to forget about the BAC as ...

    BLOWN OFF COURSE

    The issues described in Inherit the Wind, now at the Arvada Center, continue to lurk in the news. There are still religious zealots all over America who would like to censor and control those who disagree with them about a wide variety of issues--inc...

    NAKED TRUTHS

    Sweetly sardonic, Ronald Harwood's The Dresser takes as its subject the whole world of the theater. And from the abused and neglected support staffers to the stars in all their megalomaniacal glory, Harwood tells it like it is. The truths he uncovers...

    PARIS ON BROADWAY

    Our local cultural institutions do a mostly inadequate (and sometimes dreadful) job of nurturing the art of our region. It's not as though there isn't enough exhibition space--not when the vacant The End show by Edward Ruscha has had five months to b...

    GHOUL CRAZY

    The ghostly and the ghastly haunt two stages at the Plex just now--one a folk tale metamorphosed into coolly intellectual high art, the other a literary classic mutated into a pop musical. Tony Kushner's adaptation of S. Ansky's A Dybbuk offers a rar...

    THE GUYS HAVE IT

    All-male theater--what a concept. The feminist thing has got a number of guys confused, so they're rethinking issues like the meaning of sports and male bonding, science and metaphysics and, in some instances, the use of profanity. At least that's th...

    ANOTHER PASSAGE TO INDIA

    A good journey makes a heroic tale--especially when the protagonist ultimately arrives at new insight. Terrence McNally's A Perfect Ganesh, though flawed as drama by its own heady ambitions, is one such quest story. And the sterling production at The...

    TOUCH TONES

    Nothing in history has saturated the world like American pop culture. For the past fifty years, American movies, television, graphics, and especially advertising have profoundly influenced the way the whole world looks. American fine arts have ha...

    DRAWN TO IT

    A common perception within Denver's alternative scene is that everyone has an equal right to participate--and that that's what "open" or "outsider" shows are all about. I've even heard it said during a panel discussion linked to an Alternative Arts A...

    I LOVE LUCIFER

    Angels and devils hover in the local theater this season--and it's about time. First the Broadway road show Angels in America graced the Auditorium Theatre last fall with its tale of God in retreat. Now we have Lucifer Tonite, by Denver's most intens...

    LONESOME WHISTLE

    August Wilson is one of America's great playwrights. His rage, his humor and his humanity find their deepest expression in the construction of character; plot is not the point. Yet each of his plays tells a compelling story, and each story moves us b...

    COLD COMFORT

    The dead of winter is the last time one would expect to find an art show with most of the work exhibited outdoors. Surely only a lunatic--or, at the very least, an oddball--would schedule such an event in the coldest and darkest time of the year. ...

    SHLOCK AROUND THE CLOCK

    You'll want to run through Shake, Rattle and Roll, the Colorado History Museum's--excuse the expression--"exhibit" on the 1950s. And then you'll want to run away as fast as you can. To say that this show is a total disaster barely hints at how ba...
