    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    DIALING FOR DULLARDS

    If you're going to revive a period thriller as clunky and passionate as Dial "M" for Murder, for heaven's sake don't ignore the very elements that make it interesting--go for the noir! The road-show production of the classic 1950s murder mystery now ...

    LOST AND FOUND

    The public made unprecedented expenditures on public art and public buildings last year in Denver. But you wouldn't know it to look around. The biggest plum, both in terms of cost and lost opportunity, was Denver International Airport, born of th...

    TIME WARPED

    Sometimes a play can leap through the centuries and land gracefully in our midst. But it takes a crack cast to handle antiquated language forms and old-fashioned sentiments. To work really well, a revival must speak some fundamental truths about the ...

    DEVILED HAM

    The French loved him when America all but deserted him. But who cares what the French think? Now Jerry Lewis is enjoying a revival of public favor guaranteed to increase an already endless ego--fully displayed in the slick and (mostly) charming Damn ...

    TOP MARKS

    How lucky Robin Rule must be. No sooner had she moved her namesake gallery from the Siberia of an off-street spot at the Icehouse in Lodo to her new location at Broadway and 1st Avenue, across the street from the Mayan Theater than her new neighbo...

    COMMUNITY CHESTNUT

    The most important community theater arises out of a community's need--and El Centro Su Teatro is a prime example of what the best community theater should be. Producing original plays in Spanish and English, Su Teatro draws on amateur and trained pe...

    JESUS, JOSEPH AND MERRY

    Most of the holiday shows now playing in Denver are secular pieces that capitalize on the season's frenetic nostalgia but have no commitment to its meaning. But there is one authentic Christmas piece in town: Black Nativity at Eulipions. The play...

    FRIENDLY PERSUASION

    One of the great art soap operas of the past year has been the acrimonious split between Open Press, the respected printmaking outfit, and CSK Gallery, one of the newer kids on Wazee Street. Since December 1993, the printmaker and the gallery had bee...
