Openings galore!

* It takes some creative planning to catch all seven theater openings originally scheduled in the week starting Thursday, Nov. 11, and that assumes you’ve already caught Brigit’s Julius Caesar, the Playhouse social comedy A Thousand Clowns and Bellevue Little Theatre’s The Philadelphia Story, my favorite as you’ll see elsewhere on this page. Noises Off at the University of Nebraska at Omaha poses no...

Bemis Auction Results Are In ...

* The 12th Annual Bemis Art Auction set a high goal last Saturday night: Raise a half-million dollars in support of art in Omaha. And though the multi-day event didn’t quite reach it’s goal, it still beat the record of past auction sales, raising more than $460,000. The sales break down like this: $40,200 worth of art sold in “buy it now” pre-auction sales and $29,400 worth of work sold in the Thursday night...

New BLK, Aeolian Ride

The guys behind New BLK are men of their word. In a story I wrote before their first show, the organization’s founding members talked about the importance of starting a monthly Omaha First Friday.

Lo and behold, a few weeks later Facebook users found themselves invited to a new Omaha First Friday Facebook page and could search out a website,...

Brigit’s killing Julius C.

Friends, Omahans, countrymen, lend me your ears: Brigit’s killing Julius C. at the Downtown Space this weekend. And director Cathy Kurz has Mark Scott in the title role of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. If that doesn’t stoke your theatrical fires it’s because you didn’t see him in Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre’s A View from the Bridge as Eddie Carbone. It ranks with Bill Hutson’s performance in M....

Coming ‘Round Again

Every now and then, Gordon Cantiello flies in to Omaha from San Diego and creates some musical theater. This time, he’s hired a few of the metro’s favorite vocalists to present The World Goes Round, a Kander-Ebb revue opening this weekend. If composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb aren’t popping up on your screen, think such musicals as Cabaret, Chicago, New York New York and Kiss of the Spider Woman. Add...
