    IT'LL ADO

    The Compass Theatre Company's Much Ado About Nothing needs more room. The cramped space of the Dorie studio in the Denver Civic Theatre is more suited to smaller casts. But restricted as the actors are, they still manage to bustle, run, stand in elab...

    MAD ABOUT YOU

    Christopher Selbie is a lot older than any Hamlet I've ever seen, and he's more manic-depressive than melancholic. But if his performance is quirky, it's also remarkable--and it turns the Compass Theatre Company's production of Shakespeare's Hamlet, ...

    VENICE ANYONE

    The inaugural show for Pismo Gallery's new space in Cherry Creek is a splendid survey of recent work by Dale Chihuly, the prominent glass sculptor from Washington state. Chihuly is represented by many examples of his most characteristic work, groups ...

    I.M. PISSED

    I'll be as clear as glass. It is an act of barbarism to even raise the question of whether I. M. Pei's Zeckendorf Plaza is worth preserving, let alone to threaten it with destruction, as St. Louis-based absentee landlord Fred Kummer has. The plaza ra...

    DE SADE BUSTER

    The full title of Peter Weiss's Marat/Sade is The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade. A mouthful--and really a much more proper title than...

    SCREEN GEM

    The growing influence the movies have over theater has its downside. Some theatrical productions try to vie with movie spectacle, for instance, cheapening the theatrical experience, a la Miss Saigon. But Hollywood's influence can also lead to ingenio...

    HAPPY TRAILS

    Eric Zimmer, a relatively new member of the Edge Gallery co-op as well as a relative newcomer to Denver, currently fills Edge's front gallery with an ambitious display of quirky paintings and paper pieces. The paintings are closely interrelated and m...

    VOICES CARRY

    It might seem odd to find it in a theater instead of a smoky bar, but the Denver Center Theatre Company's It Ain't Nothin' but the Blues is a scintillating piece of work. The songs have been carefully chosen to illustrate the history of the blues...

    GEORGIAN ON MY MIND

    The hit movie The Madness of King George has stimulated popular interest in eighteenth-century England, which had a rich theatrical tradition of its own--witness Oliver Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer. The Industrial Arts production of this Georgia...

    BODY AND SOUL

    Current exhibits at Spark and Pirate: a contemporary art oasis each feature art that represents the human body--though you might not know it from simply looking. In Spark's front gallery, Susan Koenig shows both works on paper and works made out ...

    DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE

    Wes Hempel and Jack Balas, two painters who share a studio and an affinity for narrative content, are now sharing the Robischon Gallery with their separate but equally impressive exhibits. Hempel's paintings, on display in the front gallery, poin...

    BIBLIO FILE

    Denver city librarian Rick Ashton's been taking so many bows lately for "The Big New Library," which is on-time and on-budget, that he really ought to do an aerobics tape. Forgotten in all this excitement is the fact that had it been left up to Ashto...

    BLANK CHEKHOV

    Anton Chekhov's first play, Wild Honey, is raucous, intermittently charming, sometimes scathing and terribly clunky--the original is said to take six hours to perform. This production by Hunger Artists Ensemble Theatre is the short version, translate...

    SATISFACTORY CONDITION

    The great French playwright Moliere hated doctors, and more than 300 years after he wrote The Imaginary Invalid, his scathing ridicule of the profession still stings. The Denver Center Theatre Company's new production aims its darts at medicine's pre...

    HAM ON WRY

    What if the Big Bad Wolf wasn't really bad at all? As the song says, there are "Two Sides to Every Story," and playwright/director Pamela Clifton's interactive children's musical What Really Happened Once Upon a Time, at the Arvada Center for the Art...

    PRINTS VALIANT

    There's a good reason why Denver's Dale Chisman is frequently described as one of the most important painters in the American West. But in his latest exhibition, he demonstrates (again) that he is also a virtuoso printmaker. Chisman's One Man Sho...

    TAKE ME OUT TO THE ART SHOWS

    The clouds of the baseball strike have cast a shadow over the long-awaited opening of Coors Field on March 31. More than likely, the new ballpark will be inaugurated with replacement players instead of the real Rockies. But at the art galleries that ...

    GREAT DEPRESSION

    Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night is a difficult play, full of subtle tests of skill for those hardy souls who undertake it. But Germinal Stage Denver's new production grapples with all the challenges and wins. And though the seats turn ...

    EDGE OF NOIR

    At the Cafe Noir, everyone wears black and white--or they get picked on by the actors. The cast of this interactive theater piece, now being staged by Mystery Cabaret West at Catalano's Catered Affair, helps serve and clear a four-course dinner durin...
