    SEPARATION ANXIETY

    We are all related to each other, separated by only six people--six degrees of separation. You may not think you have anything in common with a monk in Tibet, but if you could trace a path through the right six people, you'd find a direct connection....

    SNAPPY TOM

    It could have been, so easily, Cheez Whiz. But The Who's Tommy, now playing at the Buell Theatre, has evolved into a brawny rock hymn to reconciliation. "See me, feel me, touch me, heal me" is not so much the solipsistic demand of invisible youth it ...

    TAKING IT TO THE STREETS

    Spontaneity, politics and confrontation marked much of the street theater and performance art of the Sixties and Seventies. And like many artists who came of age in that free-swinging era, L.A.'s Glugio Gronk Nicadro was drawn to art that encouraged ...

    ACTOR'S BLAB

    David Mamet's A Life in the Theatre, now playing at the Boulder Art Center, might be seen as an argument against a career in the theater--sort of a parent's tool to persuade the aspiring actor in the family to go to law school or become a sanitation ...

    THE LONELY HEARTS CLUB

    Beatle boys John and Paul each loved their mum--and they each lost her. That's one of the key themes running through Lennon and McCartney: The Day They Met, a new work by Denver playwright Michael A. Miller now being performed at the Mercury Cafe. Mi...

    LET GEORGE (AND IRA) DO IT

    The production of Crazy for You at the Buell Theatre cranks up a full head of steam--and the rest of us have to run with it. Fortunately, most of the time the sprint is worth the effort. After all, the music is George Gershwin's and the lyrics ar...

    MAINLY ON THE PLAINS

    This state's prairie lands appear remote--spare, spacy, even boring. But Last Chance to Cope--photographs of Colorado's northeastern plains on which sit the actual towns of Last Chance and Cope--finds a lot to look at out where most of us see nothing...

    CONSIDER THE SORCERER

    LIFE FORCE

    One of the best jokes in playwright Jane Wagner's one-woman show The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe is found in its title. The question is, just how intelligent is life on earth? Now in an exuberant production at the Avenue Thea...

    ONE-ACT WONDER

    Everybody has a story--sometimes several stories. But a good story isn't enough; you have to know how to tell it well. So a retired sailor named Ralph discovers during the course of Ralph's Play, the first and best of two one-acts now playing at the ...

    BLAZE OF GLORY

    A great production of an excellent play can set you on fire with passion for the art form. You walk out of the theater knowing that something authentic has been uncovered about the very nature of human experience. And you realize that this particular...

    WASTED WORDS

    The siren call of stellar artists including Ed Ruscha, Red Grooms and David Hockney makes WORD, an exhibit at the Boulder Art Center, hard to resist. But this large show of text-based works fails to thrill, displaying many noncurrent (if not aged) cr...

    SOCIAL FABRIC

    So-called fine-art quilts are nothing new. Pop-art guru Robert Rauschenberg invented his famous "combine" series in 1955 by sloshing paint on a quilted bedspread. More recent high-art treatments of Granny's handmade bed coverings include Judy Chicago...

    GUYS AND DOLLS

    With about a zillion galleries in the West featuring Native American art, you'd think that many would have Native American owners or managers. Unfortunately, that isn't the case. Certainly some legitimate galleries guard artists' interests and the ar...

    FOREIGN DISSERVICE

    The difficulty in writing a play about another culture and people far, far away is bringing the characters to life. So it comes as no surprise that City-Stage Ensemble's production of Dan Hiester's new play, Family Gatherings, a thinly disguised defe...

    FIT FOR A KING

    Witchcraft, murder, mayhem, suicide, cynicism and, finally, the tyrant's head on a pike--Shakespeare really knew how to grab an audience. And despite a somewhat tedious first act, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival's production of Macbeth ultimately g...

    PROMISES, PROMISES

    In Latin America, la promesa is a sacred concept: in order for your prayers to be answered, you must promise to give something in return. This replenishing philosophy motivates much of the area's folk art as objects of beauty are made to fulfill prom...
