    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. ...

    HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON

    OpenStage Theatre's production of The Philadelphia Story, now running in Fort Collins, proves once and for all that unemployed rich people dashing about trying to find true love in romantic comedies are no longer interesting. Whenever their plight di...

    SCIENCE FARE

    To be an innovator in today's art world takes more than skill, knowledge and talent--it also helps to know how to focus an electron microscope or calculate the frequency of a microwave transmitter. These seemingly nonartistic techniques are only ...

    SEASON'S GRATINGS

    Reckless, now running in Boulder in a biting, smart production by the Actors Ensemble, might have been called Relentless Christmas--so much of the action takes place on consecutive Christmases and so many of the events are cataclysmic. But although C...

    WEAKLY RITA

    Education is more than it's cracked up to be. And while Educating Rita, now at the Denver Civic Theatre, suggests the traditional ingestion and regurgitation approach can be improved upon, it never says how. Playwright Willy Russell's effort may be f...

    THE NAKED PRAY

    She stares out of the canvas at the viewer--at nothing. She seems frozen in a moment of deep anxiety, preoccupied with her thoughts. Who is she? In a sense, she is the artist, for this is an intensely realistic self-portrait. But at the same time, th...

    COMMIE, CAN YOU HEAR ME?

    The McCarthy era stunk. If you don't believe that, be sure to catch Red Scare on Sunset at Industrial Arts Theatre. The satire by Charles Busch imitates the style of Red-scare films (I Married a Communist, et al.) that fed American paranoia during th...

    SWING YOUR BARDNER

    Mocking sacred cows is a venerable tradition in the arts, and as long as it's done without any discernible taste (but with a good deal of wit), it satisfies our sense of the ridiculous without betraying original works. Remember Richard Armour's Twist...

    PIECE OF THE ROCKY

    Among the Denver area's many opportunities for artists, the annual associateships at the Rocky Mountain Women's Institute are unique, offering studio space, a stipend and a supportive atmosphere to a select group of visual and performing artists and ...

    DARK VICTORY

    Sometimes the dark is safer than the light. Sometimes a blind woman can "see" more clearly than those whose eyes have not dimmed. In Wait Until Dark, at the South Suburban Theatre Company, the heroine of the story is a young woman, recently blind...

    MOB HIT

    America loves its gangsters. Not the real ones, of course: We like our gangsters safely enshrined in the movies or on stage, and we like them to be Italian (one more outrageous prejudice). But while we admire the consummate movie godfather, Don Corle...

    ALL IN YOUR MIND

    Rejecting journalistic photography while investigating the uncharted neighborhood of the unconscious, three artists turn reality-based images into weird worlds full of symbols and suggestion at Mackey Gallery this month. Although the exhibit's photog...

    CLASSICAL GAS

    Perhaps it takes an Eastern European to bring the Theater of the Absurd into the present; after all, people in that part of the world have seen so much more pointless cruelty up close. Pavel M. Dobrusky appears to be qualified, and the Czech director...

    DON'T ASK ALICE

    Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland is one of the great dream narratives of all time. There's a lot of sense behind the nonsense verse and the bizarre behavior of all those whom Alice meets on her adventure. But then, the life of a dream has a logic ...

    A PRESSING ENGAGEMENT

    The medium of printmaking still carries an Old World cachet--as well as equally exclusionary costs. The expenses involved in making a hand-pulled print on heavy paper puts the reproductive technique out of reach for many artists. To overcome this...

    SIMPLE SIMON

    Ever the sentimentalist, playwright Neil Simon nevertheless has a knack for recognizing the ordinary citizen as interesting. Despite his penchant for safe answers and shallow ideals, Simon still manages to build hilarious dialogue and create characte...
