Good Vibrations

A staged reading of In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play reminded of a famous review of the film Citizen Kane. The critic apologized for telling readers how great it was because he feared they’d never get to see for themselves. They did, of course, when William Randolph Hearst failed to shut it down. The problem last Monday at the Omaha Community Playhouse was similar in some ways, different in others. Like the...

Final Project, Space for More

The face of Lincoln’s gallery scene is changing in two big ways this spring. Craig Roper’s Project Room Gallery is closing its doors in May after a three-year run; it was one of the founding galleries in the now wildly successful Parish Studio.

<p>Young Frankenstein, the next in line in Omaha Performing Arts’ Broadway Across America series, kicks off next Tuesday and runs through Sunday, April 4. </p> Tall Tale

It gave new meaning to March Madness when the little guy and the big guy in the crowd at the Duke game turned out to be Igor and the Monster from the Mel Brooks musical Young Frankenstein. Of course Igor (Cory English) wasn’t wearing his hunchback and the Monster wasn’t greenish with the zipper in his neck. For Preston Truman Boyd, a 6-foot-3 Minnesotan, it was an afternoon of basketball instead of his usual...

<p>Neil Greiss, “Untilted” </p> Win! Place! Show!

Ask any gallery director, private or public, what “job one” is and they are likely to tell you it’s organizing exhibitions that meet their mission and satisfy the needs of their artists and patrons.

It must also...
