Playhouse Premieres Family Fun

It’s tempting to play doctor and diagnose the world premiere play that opened at the Omaha Community Playhouse last weekend. But that urge doesn’t happen until late in the second act of A Night with the Family.

Omaha playwright comes into her own

Everything about one of Omaha's bright new playwrights bespeaks exotica, starting with her name, Beaufield Berry. This biracial, bicoastal creative with model good looks has worked as an actor, a singer, a VIP dancer, a burlesque performer, a mud wrestler and a horse ranch entertainment director.

Movie Magic in the Midlands

Bruce Crawford, Film Historian, said his first film event occurred almost by happenstance.

“In 1992, exactly 20 years ago at this time, Ray Harryhausen, the special effects legend, got a Lifetime Achievement Oscar and I was with him for all of that. I’d been a big fan, friend and supporter of his for a long, long time. And I thought, ‘Wow, he’s getting more recognition now than ever. Maybe now is the time to see...

Noah’s Ark Was A Spaceship

            Noah’s Ark Was A Spaceship has been quiet for a while, but that’s all about to end. The local indie band has finally returned with a new record after a brief hiatus in 2012. Titled You Need You, it’s a welcome return from a band that has collected a slew of fans in its short existence.

Jukebox the Ghost is a shapeshifting band of modern indie-poppers, willing to graft rubbery 80s R&B uplift or polyrhythmic world-music styling to their propulsive pop songs. The Brooklyn-based trio's shifting sound has allowed them to share the stage with Ben...

The collaboration of vocalist Channy Leaneagh and restless Minneapolis musician Ryan Olson (Gayngs, Marijuana Deathsquads) has quickly built a head of steam on the dichotomy of the smoldering, subdued electro-pop of their 2012 debut album, Give Up the Ghost, and a live show that reportedly burns...
