UNO Theatre’s Tragedy and Triumph

A lot of tragedy has filled this past week at home and abroad. It’s times like these that the importance of theatre is magnified. Our artform and the stories it tells give us a means to cope, a tool to escape, a lens to help make sense of the world, and above all, a constant reminder that we’re not alone in this adventure called life. Nowhere was this more evident than at UNO Theatre’s production of Female...

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.

For the entire first act and well into Act Two, you’re having way too much fun to even think about what it might take to make an entertaining evening even better. Playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett wasn’t...

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.

She's into body-building. She's fallen in and out of love. She's suffered broken hearts and broken a few herself....

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...
