Of Age

As Emily Litella always said on SNL, “Nev-er mind.” Forget my recent claim that Billy McGuigan offers the most fun to be had at the Omaha Community Playhouse. That was before three dozen of us survived Live Karaoke Broadway Night. Never mind “survived” either. For others, the fun didn’t pose much imminent danger. But when you’re used to reviewing performances at the Playhouse, and you’re sitting in...

Ralston Community Theater, More Playhouse Fun

* Ralston Community Theater brings back one of its own from Las Vegas to raise funds for next summer’s musical The King and I.

Grown Woman

When Ariel Ibsen was a very little woman, a newborn babe, some assumed she was named for Disney’s then popular “Little Mermaid.” Now she’s 19 and directing Little Women, the play based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel, for Chanticleer Community Theater.

Theater Futures

* Two shows certain to have me dabbing at my eyes are Steel Magnolias at the Omaha Community Playhouse and Les Miserables, returning to the Orpheum in the Broadway Across America series. * I’ll hang around after Mary Poppins later this month to see if anyone suffers from the problem mentioned in its television commercials, namely feet that won’t stop tapping for an hour and a-half. I’d also cry for joy at its...

2010 In Stages

If you look back at two types of triumphs in 2010, you could be arguing well into 2011 about the age-old theater question: can the most significant and challenging plays draw big crowds? In the earlier days of the 85-year history of the Omaha Community Playhouse, when they were doing O’Neill and Shaw with regularity, some would insist that the most intellectually demanding drama drew better than lighter fare....
