Bird Watching

Joseph Broghammer’s species of birds now roosting at Anderson O’Brien Gallery in the Old Market might challenge any Ornithologist studying bird behavior. Not perched for flight, including those with wings outstretched, these birds have made their claim.

They each occupy a large amount of space. As protagonists in the depiction of the human condition they are linked to Chicago Imagism which had its beginnings in...

Rock of Ages Brings 80s Arena Hits

If you don’t count trial runs, Rock of Ages took three years to make it from Broadway to Omaha, where fans of 80s arena rock have waited patiently for its 28 songs and its love story set on Sunset Strip.

The great dome of St. Paul’s appears and Westminster Bridge marks the spot where Big Ben tolls the time beside the Houses...

Fantasticks Steam Punked

If the steampunk concept draws you to The Fantasticks at the Omaha Community Playhouse, well and good. It’s interesting and appealing.

But it shouldn’t overshadow the more surprising accomplishment of director Carl Beck and his cast. They’ve given us far and away the best treatment of this record-setting 52-year-old musical that I’ve ever seen.
