Cold Cream: Rediscovering Jane Noseworthy

Jane Noseworthy, the former Miss Nebraska who starred often at the Omaha Community Playhouse and the now-departed Dundee Dinner Theatre, plays Portia these days at the Colorado Springs TheatreWorks.

If you’re not up to driving that far for Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, consider this description of the venue: “The idyllic environs of the Rock Ledge Ranch near the Garden of the Gods.” Wish Brigit Saint...
