<p>Roving photograher Rob Walters documents unkown Metro in Driving Omaha at Sweatshop Gallery</p> Drive by Shooting

I spent my first three years here waking to school and work and to parties. I made the decision to get a bike and quickly switched back to the ped lifestyle because Omaha is, as we all know, hillier than The Sound of Music and hard to pedal. Sadly, this truth leaves one reasonable choice to get around our beloved metro, which is over 30 miles across: drive the hell out of it.

EPITHETICALLY VOLATILE

It’s been nearly 40 years since David Mamet pounced onto the stage with his salty verbosity in American Buffalo. Since then he’s acquired a major rep for showing tough guys in screwy schemes, wheeling and dealing like all get out. 

The production at Blue Barn, superbly directed by Susan Clement-Toberer encapsulates that essence, with a rock solid cast socking it to us definitively, simmering with personality and...

A CHILD’S GARDEN OF INNOCENCE

The playing space is dominated by a massive fence. It surrounds the only territory for Mickey and Sage, currently revealed at Shelterbelt Theatre. There is another interior territory, however, covering more than what is immediately visible and audible.
