Cold Cream

* It didn't seem possible to follow the opening of Les Miserables with a completely different type of performance that provided a comparable glow of appreciation of its power and beauty. But it happened on the opening night of Tuesdays with Morrie at the Omaha Community Playhouse. I thought I'd seen Bill Hutson at his best 17 years ago in M. Butterfly. But that was before witnessing his brilliant portrayal of...

Hystery Mystery

A couple in the front row dropped out of Theatre Hystery 101 after Act One. I didn't blame them at the time. I was tempted to join them. Words like "crime against humanity" and "criminal mischief" came to mind, not to mention the thought that one of my favorite companies, Brigit Saint Brigit, had reached an all-time low. Then I noticed that the intermission featured the three actors who committed the playwriting...

<p>The set of UNO’s Twelfth Night, which runs through April 23 at the Weber Fine Arts Building on campus at 60th and Dodge. </p> A Visual Treat For the Twelfth or Any Other Night

The liltingly lyrical tresses of the weeping willow feature prominently in at least a pair of Shakespearean tragedies. Hamlet has Ophelia going to her watery grave among the “coronet weeds” of a willow by a “weeping brook … her clothes spread wide and, mermaid-like, they bore her up.” Othello echoes the motif of the tree’s poetic tentacles, this time as the equally ill-fated Desdemona (jealous Moor,...
