    THEIR AIM IS TRUE

    Here in Colorado, we get more than our share of "pretty" photographs of the West. These brilliantly colored fantasies portray a land full of unspoiled scenery, snow-capped peaks, green forests and crystalline lakes. But longtime residents know anothe...

    MAMA CAST

    The texture and nature of intimacy is the texture and substance of Shay Youngblood's potent Shakin' the Mess Outta Misery at Eulipions Theatre. The story about a twelve-year-old girl and the eight "Big Mamas" who raised her reveals the hidden threads...

    VITAL SIGNS

    Hard as it is to admit, Denver's alternative scene is aging. Well-established cooperative galleries such as Pirate and Spark are celebrating anniversaries well into the double digits, and many of their members now enjoy elder-statesman status. Housed...

    A GOOD IMPRESSION

    When I was around six years old, my mother took a class in oil painting at Emily Griffith Opportunity School. I have vivid memories of her bringing home boxes of smelly paint and handfuls of those tiny books filled with child-sized reproductions of t...

    THAT'S THE SPIRIT

    Beware the ghost with a bargain: The price for the ethereal gifts he offers may be too high. The hero of Charles Dickens's The Haunted Man, now in a splendid new production by CityStage Ensemble, discovers just how high a price when he's offered rele...

    PAST IMPERFECT

    Any curator looking to find the best women artists from the Front Range over the last twenty years would do well to read the roster of the Rocky Mountain Women's Institute. Begun in 1976, RMWI's annual search for female (and, since 1993, male) artist...

    SIMPLY SIMON

    Sometimes a guy is better off when his wildest dreams don't come true. After all, when real life intrudes on fantasy, it can be most disappointing. So the hero finds out in Last of the Red Hot Lovers, playing at the RiverTree Theatre through Saturday...

    LOSING THE SPIRIT

    Charles Dickens understood the fine art of tearjerking. Nobody before or since could sentimentalize human virtue, family life or the death of a child with such unabashed exploitation and get away with it. But Dickens loved the rarer pleasures of ...

    WINGING IT

    Thieves and murderers can turn into comic heroes--even guardian angels. The result in My Three Angels at the Westminster Dinner Theatre is an intermittently divine comedy. The play proposes three miscreants as benevolent figures who watch over a ...

    BODY LANGUAGE

    The phrase "read you like a book" has some basis in fact: Most observers will agree that the human body can be read for meaning, much like a text. Some artists have taken the metaphor literally, concentrating on the direct representation of body part...

    (CHRISTMAS) NIGHT COMING TENDERLY

    'Tis the season, yet very few professional theater companies take up the religious significance of Christmas. A good thing, too, since the majority would muck it up with insincere pretensions. But the fact that most theater companies can't do Christm...

    THE MURAL MAJORITY

    Years before LoDo was a dull gleam in a developer's eye, northwest Denver's Highlands neighborhood shone as the city's unofficial arts district. Artists flocked to the area, drawn by cheap rent, urban convenience and choice hangouts like My Brother's...

    LADIES AND GENTLEMAN

    Beneath a thin (yet sturdy) veneer of respectability lies a nasty little secret at Ravenscroft manor. And when the handsome young footman of the house dies suddenly, falling to his death down the main stairway, it looks suspiciously like murder. The ...

    NATURE BOY

    Rivers have always presented a challenge for landscape artists. Their majesty, their mystery and, especially, their movement all resist a flat, two-dimensional rendering. Enter German artist Mario Reis, whose recently completed North American Nat...

    CHRISTMAS CHEERS

    They're baa-ack--the original cast (save one) of Denver's long-running Murder Most Fowl, that is. The play returns to the Avenue Theater this season as (A Very Merry) Murder Most Fowl. The plot's the same, but the jokes are all new, and the interacti...

    THE FEMINIST MISTAKE

    No matter where you stand on feminist issues, David Mamet's Oleanna at the Denver Center Theatre Company will tick you off. This is the kind of theater that sends you furious into the night--masterfully manipulative and absolutely scary. It's sca...

    GENDER FLEX

    The fad of pigeonholing art into politically correct categories has created a multitude of interesting genres. Some are lively and welcome inventions, such as Outsider Art, Latino Art or the recent Reclamation Art, where environmentally contaminated ...

    LET'S DO THE TWIST

    Whenever a great novel is turned into a play, something inevitably will be lost in the translation. When the play is also a musical, a lot more of the original evaporates into thin air to make room for the song and dance routines. The most one can ho...

    HYPOCRITICAL MASS

    Moliere's Tartuffe, now in a searingly funny production by CityStage Ensemble at Jack's Theater, takes on religious hypocrisy with such fervent zeal that it laid its original audience to waste. But then Moliere's patron, the "Sun King" Louis XIV, was...

    MIRROR IMAGES

    Denver artist Louis Recchia's raucous, jam-packed style has changed only slightly since he burst onto the Denver art scene in the early Eighties. And in Recchia's case, that's a positive: His trademark mirror-filled backgrounds, found-object tableaux...
