    THE BEAT GOES ON

    In the 1950s, when it seemed as if every artist in America was working in an abstract style, a handful of visionaries in the San Francisco area were creating to the beat of a different drummer. The "Beats," close cultural allies of the Beat poets, de...

    DRAGGIN' THE LINE

    Cross-gender performances are not all equal. When women play male characters, we tend to take them seriously. But when men play female roles, we can't help but laugh--it always looks like parody. CityStage Ensemble director David Quinn's version of R...

    AUNTIE ESTABLISHMENT

    Something about the Roaring Twenties still seems naughty--and in the best sense of the word. Maybe it's just nostalgia for a simpler time, but even the wild flappers, the speakeasies and the social experimentation had a much more innocent feel than o...

    ALL HEART

    The first of many holiday shows, She Loves Me may well turn out to be this season's best. This delightfully quirky musical has been given a delicious, intimate staging by the South Suburban Theatre Company, with a charming cast, fine direction and a ...

    FOAM HOME

    Psycho Beach Party is yet another outrageous parody of B movies and pop psychology--and it's somewhat brighter and cleverer than most. The cast at Theatre on Broadway is right on down the line, but the show depends upon the ingenious antics of its st...

    REMEMBRANCES

    Russell Beardsley's sculptures, wall reliefs, mixed-media pieces and an installation are interspersed with Debra Goldman's photos and photo-constructions in the current show at the Mackey Gallery. Though there are few obvious similarities between Bea...

    GORGEOUS GEORGE

    George Gershwin's pop tunes hold up after all these years. Tunes like "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and "But Not for Me" have beautiful melodies and jazzy energies that are still capable of knocking your socks...

    KING ME

    Purists may blanch at director Jeremy Cole's adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, but the adventurous revision has much to say to us. It's not perfect, but this production by the Cattlecall theater troupe is intense, knowing, and never dull. As t...

    HOLY MOTHERWELL!

    If it's a taste of Manhattan modernism you're craving this fall (and who isn't?) run, do not walk, to Options 3--Robert Motherwell, the Denver Art Museum's exhibit of twenty newly acquired paintings, collages and works on paper from this modern-day g...

    UNDER A CHEEVER

    In his many short stories, John Cheever skimmed the surface of bourgeois American family life, laying bare the pretensions of suburban culture and dissecting the hopelessness of its materialism in nicely served, if thin, slices of life. In A Cheever ...

    LOVE, AMERICAN STYLE

    John Patrick Shanley's poignant Danny and the Deep Blue Sea is a three-scene argument for love--the kind of love between a man and a woman that penetrates individual isolation via mutual kindness. And it's delivered in an unusual package as persuasiv...

    TURNING THE TABLES

    The Alternative Arts Alliance Open Show, which closes this weekend, is an annual demonstration of just how difficult it is for artists to create credible installations. Thank goodness an antidote is at the ready: Vital Connections, an intelligent and...

    GONE SOUTH

    Quick--name three women artists from Latin America. Well, there's Frida Kahlo, of course, and then there's, uh...er.... That most of us know so little about the art of our neighbors to the south makes a point about how art appreciation in this cou...

    IN THE FLESH

    It's almost impossible to put on Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice today; if one excises the loathsome anti-Semitism from the play, one can't help but do violence to its original meaning. Laurence Olivier managed to virtually reconstruct the play'...

    WEDDING BELL BLAHS

    The local husband-and-wife acting team of Moira Keefe and Charlie Oates couldn't be much different from each other. Yet they have managed to stay married for nine years, and they share their often dark and mostly hilarious secrets in the show they wr...

    WESTWARD HO!

    The American frontier of the nineteenth century was a bonanza for both nature-loving romantics and the pragmatic forces of manifest destiny. And at the nexus of these two very different groups were the artists who recorded it all firsthand as members...

    MEDICINE WOMEN

    Arthur Miller appears to have gained some wisdom in his old age. A man has to mature a long way in his understanding of the world and of women to write a play as insightful and kind as The Last Yankee. And the Denver Center Theatre Company has import...

    SHAW AND ORDER

    The plays that George Bernard Shaw wrote in the late nineteenth century were popular because they were funny--and because, despite Shaw's socialist politics and Darwinian outlook, the societal conventions he appeared to flout were actually refined un...

    SECOND IMPRESSIONS

    Fads, fashion and fancy are all reflected in the historic art that is of interest to people today. And just like art itself, the study of art history is subject to change over time. One of the sea changes in the field in the last twenty years has...

    Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, many of that country's most famous contemporary artists have come to settle in the West, especially in New York City. This colony of Russian expatriates has had a profound effect on American contemporary art. A...
