Bar Handled

How often do you enjoy a play so much you can’t wait to see it again? So enchanted you quickly read the entire script of Distant Music, hearing the words once more as spoken by Scott Kurz, Kevin Barratt and Laura Leininger?

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.

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...
