Cold Cream

* My first awareness that Andy Rannels was starring in the hit Broadway musical Book of Mormon, by the “South Park” creators, came when a unidentified photo looked familiar. You couldn’t miss that gleaming smile of the fuzzy-cheeked kid who always looked like he’d just been hatched. Now, of course, everybody knows it’s the young man we saw in such Omaha shows as On Golden Pond and 110 in the Shade. Raised...

Wild at Art

The RNG Gallery and its partnership with Dixie Quicks Restaurant is leaving town sometime this summer to set up new residence across the river but not before making a strong statement about what Council Bluffs can expect via contemporary art. Last Friday, members of CB’s Chamber of Commerce lunched on Chef Rene Orduna’s Southern and Cajun fare while getting an earful from Orduna’s partner, gallery owner Rob...

The Witching Hour’s Bitch worth staying up for

When the French want to “shorten her,” we’re spared the head of Marie Antoinette rolling from the guillotine. But the Witching Hour’s original production, Bitch, doesn’t flinch when it comes to questioning four famous executions. Directed by Jennifer Pool, who co-wrote the one-hour play with Kirstin Kluver and Kathleen Lawler, Bitch boldly risks a fast-paced, highly-choreographed treatment of the French...

Good Vibrations

A staged reading of In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play reminded of a famous review of the film Citizen Kane. The critic apologized for telling readers how great it was because he feared they’d never get to see for themselves. They did, of course, when William Randolph Hearst failed to shut it down. The problem last Monday at the Omaha Community Playhouse was similar in some ways, different in others. Like the...

Final Project, Space for More

The face of Lincoln’s gallery scene is changing in two big ways this spring. Craig Roper’s Project Room Gallery is closing its doors in May after a three-year run; it was one of the founding galleries in the now wildly successful Parish Studio. And two new gallery spaces — both operated by University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty — are likely to take Roper’s place in continuing to bring challenging,...
