    GLAZED AND CONFUSED

    Neither rain nor smog nor threat of armed insurrection can keep any really hard-core Mexican folk art aficionado, including me (and, at one time, Nelson Rockefeller), from tracking down the objects of this insane aesthetic obsession. Recent...

    REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT

    Mutilated human corpses pile up in Port-au-Prince, severed body parts strew the roads of Rwanda, blood flows in Bosnia to cleanse Yugoslavia of ethnic impurity. Even on the eve of an invasion, ruthless dictators cling to power in the name ...

    MASQUER PIECE THEATRE

    CHILLY RECEPTION

    A play about Antarctica seems like a good antidote for the summer heat in Phoenix. But Terra Nova, the story of the 1911 race for the South Pole, trades one hell for another. Playwright Ted Tally uses the death of one of Britain's most cherished hero...

    SEND UP THE CLOWNS

    After seeing the latest version of Forbidden Broadway, I left Herberger Theater Center depressed. My reaction was like the one I had when a shock jock started telling jokes about the homeless. His routine was clever, all right, but wasn't the subject...

    CANADA DRY

    In 1992, the world celebrated--or at least acknowledged--the quincentennial of America's discovery by Italian explorer Christopher Columbus. During that glorious year, open season was declared on good ol' Chris and on those who followed in his wake. ...

    FIN AND YANG

    "Fish Out Of Water," Mesa Southwest Museum's summer art show, is about the closest I've gotten to baiting a hook in 30 years. That's when my father gave up trying to convert me to the church of fishing--and also gave up dragging me, kicking and screa...

    CARRY IT BACK TO OLD VIRGINNY

    After seeing the works on paper in the latest group show being hosted by MARS Gallery, a snide adage pops to mind: "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach." Imported from Richmond, Virginia's 1708 Gallery, a well-established artists' cooperative...

    GAEL FORCE

    The title of Widows' Peak, a comic mystery set in Ireland in the 1920s, refers to a sort of colony of happy widows. It's a high hill which overlooks the town of Kilshannon, and upon which, by some vaguely explained decree of antiquity, only widows ar...

    UNHAPPINESS IS

    Some musicals beg you to like them. They brandish their sincerity as a weapon--you're hit over the head, grabbed by the throat and throttled. If you try to resist, well, you're the kind of dour-hearted drudge who ought to stick to Eugene O'Neill revi...

    AMERICAN GRAFFITIAEROSOL ARTISTS ANSWER SCRAWL OF THE WILD

    TOTALLY BOSS!

    Everyone in the audience was laughing like crazy. I saw a man on the aisle wipe away tears. The laughter was the from-the-gut kind, and it was for a song called "A Secretary Is Not a Toy." I laughed as hard as anybody, because the experience had the ...
