Confessions and Premonitions

In an age of continuously expanding and popular new media art—digital, computer graphics, animation, virtual art, internet art, interactive art, robotics, even biotechnology as art– how can easel painting, traced back to the ancient Egyptians, possibly be new or challenging for artists and their audiences?

The answer is merely in the question, really, and artists Jessie Fisher and Julie Farstad take on this...

<p>  Children Of Eden</p> Will Eve Listen to Snake This Time?

I don’t want to spoil the suspense if you’re attending Children of Eden this weekend at the Bellevue Little Theatre, but I suspect you know how this one comes out.

            Maybe director Julian Adair has a few tricks up her sleeve, but I’m afraid Eve’s apt to let the serpent talk her into eating the apple and Adam won’t have much luck when he tells God to blame “that woman you gave me.”

Top Talents Return for Chicago’s Razzle-Dazzleing

Timely Arrival of End Days Play

So why am I touting a staged reading of End Days on a weekend when Jersey Boys just opened at the Orpheum and Babes in Toyland is underway at Chanticleer in Council Bluffs, not to mention that Chicago and Children of Eden add to the musical menagerie next weekend at the Omaha Community Playhouse and Bellevue Little Theatre?
