Ask For a Line

Creighton University students in jeans and sweatshirts follow director Alan Klem, shaking limbs and flexing voices with, “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? They’re not auditioning for a Geico insurance commercial, but rehearsing for Creighton’s first Irish play in Klem’s memory. Dancing at Lughnasa opened Wednesday and runs through Feb. 6 in their Studio Theatre. Why...

Blind ’Em With Science

Omaha artist Josh Powell has spent the past month wrangling close to 100 artists together for what promises to be one of the city’s more memorable shows of 2011. Powell, with help from fellow Omaha artists Joel Damon (recently named curator of the Bemis Underground) and Kevin Rooney, pulled together a group of largely unknown artists for Science Fair, which opens this Friday in a storage warehouse turned art...

Opposites Attract

Polite society has a way of telling artists where to “draw the line” or not to “cross the line” in the name of political correctness, family values or so-called community standards.

The Felix In Me

One reason the Neil Simon classic is among my favorite comedies is that I get to celebrate my inner Felix Ungar. For one night, I am reminded there are others out there who are just like me: persnickety to a fault. Have you ever...

Mind Your Q.

Mary Poppins is new to Omaha, but both the musical and the city are long familiar to one of its principal players, Q. Smith. Born here as Quiana and with the show for three years, she returns as the title character’s rival nanny. You might even say our hometown girl plays the villain. Mary sings, “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down,” but Q.’s nanny, Miss Andrew, forces “Brimstone and...

Brigit, Odd Couple, From Shelterbelt With Love

* What sounds good when it feels like you’ve been pushing snow around every few hours? Sitting snug in an Irish pub with a bartender named Dev (Scott Kurz), sipping some stout and eavesdropping on Connor (Kevin Barratt) and Maeve (Laura Leininger) as they sort out life-changing decisions. It may not be snowing when Distant Music by James McLindon opens Thursday in Brigit Saint Brigit Theater’s Downtown Space,...
