    Stout Stuff - With the end of Nebula 9, Jim Stout is ready to step out on his own.

    Since 1992, Nebula 9 has been Colorado's best (and most popular) electronic-dance duo. But no more. At a time when the rest of the country finally seems to be catching up with the act's style of music, the team of Jim Stout and Julian Bradley has spl...

    I, Robert

    It's been a long wait, but the Roundfish Theatre Company is back, bold and brassy, with Bobology. These three short one-acts by Denver playwright James R. Cannon present an absurdist attack on economic, political and religious fascism. And though the...

    Grimm's Reapers

    Family entertainment doesn't have to mean mush. The Denver Center Theatre Company began the year with a smart, edgy Peter Pan and followed it with a poignant Christmas Carol, an inventive Comedy of Errors and a delightful Life With Father. Now the DC...

    Major Leagues

    Commercial art galleries rarely coordinate their shows. The normal practice for galleries, even those next door to one another, is to schedule shows according to the vagaries of artists' schedules and the idiosyncrasies of gallery directors. But view...

    Playing the Anglicans

    Anyone who's ever been to Christmas mass at St. John's Episcopal Cathedral in Denver knows that the church is what the theater wishes it were. It has drama, mystery, joy, a sense of the tragic, a joke or two and, at its best, a feeling of transcenden...

    Looking Sharp

    Sure, he'd hate it--and it's hard to imagine that he could squeeze more schmoozing time into any given day. But imagine if Denver Art Museum director Lewis Sharp were the city's omnipotent art czar. Oh, the disappointments we might have been spared. ...

    Do the White Thing

    All that bastardization of African-American music by white rock-and-rollers produced some terrific stuff. But white pop music is pasty indeed compared to original rhythm-and-blues masters like Aretha Franklin, Chuck Berry and Little Richard. The rock...

    Wed Scare

    The musical version of Jan de Hartog's Tony Award-winning play The Four Poster is called I Do! I Do!--and if it weren't for two fine performers who pump their life's breath into it at Littleton's Town Hall Arts Center, it would be a resounding I Don'...

    Road Kill

    It was in the early 1980s that many of Denver's alternative art spaces first came into being. Spark and then Pirate were founded, and within a few years, Edge and Core and other, more minor locales appeared. At first these spaces were little more tha...

    Wedding Bell Blahs

    Only Stephen Sondheim or the devil could build an entire musical around a 35-year-old bachelor spending two and a half hours trying to decide whether he's ready for marriage. Get over yourself, jackass. Come to think of it, apart from two or thr...

    Fore Play

    Jules Feiffer's Carnal Knowledge was written in the 1960s, made into a film starring Jack Nicholson and Art Garfunkel in the 1970s, and revised in the late 1980s. It may seem a bit dated today--most educated men, after all, have learned a little some...

    Spring Cleaning

    We may or may not have seen the last of the snow this year, but signs of renewal--such a part of the ritual of spring--are visible everywhere. Blossoming along with all of those tulips is the city's local alternative-art scene, where a veritable nose...

    Muller's Crossing

    East German playwright Heiner Muller is not well-known in America, so the Lida Project's production of HamletMachine presents a rare opportunity for Denver audiences to experience his wild woolliness. And what an experience: Such extravagant crazines...

    Strife on the Mississippi

    A controversy over racial stereotypes has dogged the remounting of Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II's Show Boat. But the art and soul of this 1927 musical remains the beautiful song "Ol' Man River." Sung by a character who is an ex-slave, it refl...

    Facts and Fantasies

    Painters Jack Balas and Wes Hempel are fixtures on Denver's art scene despite residing in what might be called the Outer Mongolia of the Front Range--the sleepy northern Colorado town of Berthoud. To a great extent, their in-town fame is the product ...

    Thirties Something

    It takes a little taste and a lot of guts to mount a 1920s or 1930s musical--and a keen artistic eye to keep it true to its period. The Country Dinner Playhouse's vivacious 42nd Street is truer to that dazzling dance era than most. A pretender like O...

    Sweet Bard of Youth

    The dreams of youth can be so noble, so passionate and so hard to fulfill. Without a rigorous integrity and the warm watering of inspiration, noble ideals can dry and fade away, leaving very little behind but the stain of regret. English playwright S...

    Diversity Rules

    It's been anything goes in the art world since the 1980s, and the upside of that scattershot approach to culture is that there's something for everyone in the local galleries. The current spring shows range from sophisticated contemporary expressions...

    Tapped Out

    You can't go wrong with the Gershwin boys. No matter how you stack their tunes, they still buzz after all these years. And they buzz best with a snazzy tap-dance routine to bolster them--like the bright numbers in My One and Only, a vulgarized revisi...

    Road Show

    Denver native Steven Dietz has had eighteen plays produced--several of which even made it to Denver (notably, God's Country, The Lonely Planet and Trust). That distinguished career got another boost last week in Louisville, Kentucky, where Dietz's ne...
