See What’s Missing

Faceless portraits and figure paintings minus torso and head. Mountain vistas like blueberry, raspberry and lemon dribbled ice cream sundaes. RNG Gallery promised it wouldn’t lose its edge when it relocated east in Council Bluffs. For the most part, its inaugural exhibit delivers

Christmas Snow Falls on London Town

We see theater in all sorts of venues, but few can match the current opportunity to see A Christmas Carol with snow falling on a Dickensian street and Tartuffe with powdered wigs and period costumes in the splendor of the Joslyn Castle music room.

Brigit St. Brigit is blessed to present the Moliere classic surrounded by beautiful wood, whether it’s oak as described in the daily, or satinwood as I termed it last...

Durbin’s Back as Tartuffe for Brigit

John Durbin sat on stairs that descend into Joslyn Castle’s music room, as handsome a setting as you’ll find. He’s fresh from months in Hawaii with George Clooney and two dozen others he cast in Alexander Payne’s new movie, The Descendants.
