Cold Cream’s Busy Weekend

* The last weekend in the merry month of May more than compensates for the penultimate one that was absent new theater openings. Suddenly we get Wicked, Guys and Dolls, My Big Gay Italian Wedding, Leaving Iowa and Nana's Naughty Knickers plus the Saturday start of eight full days of drama at the Great Plains Theater Conference. You can read more about the GPTC and the Omaha Community Playhouse G&D musical elsewhere...

Brave New Worlds

(Ed's Note: GPTC-goers, be sure to pick up a print copy of The Reader, which is complete with a special insert featuring a full GPTC schedule.) The playwrights assemble, not on your average prairie, but at the Great Plains Theatre Conference, which brings the creators of brave new worlds to the middle of the country.

Spellbound

Any new art exhibit in Omaha that comes from south of the border naturally raises certain expectations of work rich in Mexican heritage and socio-political issues from such masters as Jose Orozco, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. But cultural and national issues aside, artists the world over share similar interests and concerns dealing with form, vision and process as much as content. Such is the case with Sorcery, a...

<p>Randy Danson as Madame Morrible in Broadway Across America’s production of Wicked. The show runs May 25 through June 12 at the Orpheum Theater.  </p> Quick for Wicked

* Wasn't Wicked here two years ago? That makes it the quickest comeback for any Broadway musical to return to the Orpheum. And it's by far the fastest to return with a run that stretches through three weekends, Wednesday, May 25-June 12. That doesn't surprise Randy Danson who plays the horrible Madame Morrible, who teaches both Glinda the Good and the emerald-green Elphaba as young witches. The oft-honored actress...

<p>An observer checks out a piece from Sharon Booma’s The Writing’s on the Wall, on display through Sunday at Anderson O’Brien Fine Art, 1108 Jackson St.  </p> Follow the Signs

Anderson O’Brien Fine Art has been a “go to” destination for modern and contemporary art patrons in the Omaha area for the past 30 years. The gallery’s expansion to the Old Market at 1108 Jackson St. in July, 2010, generated much excitement. The current exhibition Sharon Booma: The Writing’s on the Wall clearly demonstrates why. The Writing’s on the Wall provides 25 new works by this prolific artist,...

<p>“The Minutes and the Months,” Nicholas Bohac </p> 2011 A Space Odyssey

Landscape artists and sculptors generally have one thing in common despite their different mediums, and that is space. They either make us more aware of the space we live in or fill it up with objects that make it more livable. Much artwork from both is mostly representational, figurative or merely decorative. Less mainstream is the contemporary artist who treats said space conceptually and makes it an integral...
