Et Tu, Brigit?

If he would be crowned king, Julius Caesar must come to the Roman Senate, despite all warnings. But his coming will reinforce the claims of his conspirators that he is far too ambitious. Thus unfolds the climactic action of Will Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and sets the stage for the most famous public speeches in all his plays. Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre’s director, Cathy M.W. Kurz, presents a...

Orlan

I’ve been waiting the better part of the summer for French performance artist ORLAN to arrive in Lincoln for a week-long stint at the Sheldon. (Full disclosure: I work at Sheldon.) ORLAN’s finally arrived and Friday, Nov. 5, at 5:30 p.m., as part of the Sheldon’s monthly First Friday celebration, she’ll lead a “round chair discussion” in her installation at the museum. Her piece ORLAN: The Harlequin Coat...

Send In The Clowns

Ben Adams, 12, shows Nick Zadina, who is 12 at heart but plays Ben’s uncle in A Thousand Clowns, the proper placement of his fingers on a ukulele.

After all, he quit work and looks at life as a comedy populated by the title’s clowns. On the...

Body and Soul

Bellies, backs and feet make for unique portraits at Moving Gallery We have all posed for that proverbial portrait photo whether for travel, license, family, job or glamour with mixed results. A little makeup, some flattering light and shadow and a Photoshop edit or two, as we hope the photo artist will help us put our best face and figure forward. It’s not just vanity. It’s about identity. We know the lens...

21 And Over, Nogg’s Class, Katie’s Fury

In a season with such unprovocative titles as The Odd Couple, Nunsense and Steel Magnolias running consecutively at the Omaha Community Playhouse, here comes a striking contrast: Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the OCP’s Howard Drew Theatre, its new “21 and Over” program offers a free reading of Peter Nachtrieb’s Boom, involving a global catastrophe that occurs after a graduate student’s online personal ad lures a...
