Skullduggery On the Move, YIR Leftovers

* When SkullDuggery lost its lease and dropped plays from its schedule, Lilyhorn/Martin Productions was born. So the play with the unprintable title will go next month at the Bancroft Street Market. That’s Shopping and F***ing (when feeling bolder, we include the k but never the horseshoe-shaped vowel). Randall T. Stevens agreed to direct when Andrew McGreevy was producing it for SkullDuggery, and didn’t want...

Paint By Numbers

It’s said in any given year in any given metropolitan community that about 25 percent of its population attends a museum or gallery at least once and 15 percent watch or listen to programs about art, artists and museums as well. That’s according to a 2008 Survey of Public Participation sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts. Interestingly, visual arts participation is greater than for, say, plays...

Countdown to Curtain

He’s the unseen master of the house, calling cues on his radio headset or flipping switches to turn on red, green and yellow cue lights. The script says, “slurp, slurp, slurp,” as Ebenezer Scrooge noisily spoons his soup, and the words tell Steve Priesman to signal the next change in lights, sound or set piece.

21 & Over

* More theater lovers have attended those “21 and Over” evenings at the Omaha Community Playhouse each month, organizer Amy Lane reports. And the Live Karaoke Broadway Night at Jan. 5 at 7:30 p.m. should bring an even bigger crowd than the 100 or so in the past. Note that it’s a Wednesday, not the usual Monday. More important, it falls in the post-holiday gap before new productions open later in January. And...

Vermin, Vermin Everywhere!

Jamie Burmeister is the type of guy who can’t stand still. The 41-year-old exercise scientist-turned-artist constantly works on new projects, whether it’s hardwiring a rocking chair to correspond with a movie projector, or modeling 4-inch men out of clay. The latter, Burmeister’s Vermin Project, is his most popular. The idea of the Vermin Project — the first of its kind — is to install miniature...

Globetrotters

Many is the man or woman who wanted to take that voyage “across the pond” — seeking one’s fortune, a new beginning or maybe just to escape with no intention of returning. Let the record show that most such movement has been east to west across the Atlantic. Yet, today, “The land of opportunity” is no longer an exclusive reference to America. Just as many Americans are rediscovering roots in their...
