New BLK, Aeolian Ride

The guys behind New BLK are men of their word. In a story I wrote before their first show, the organization’s founding members talked about the importance of starting a monthly Omaha First Friday. It’s something any local art-goer will tell you the community wants. Lo and behold, a few weeks later Facebook users found themselves invited to a new Omaha First Friday Facebook page and could search out a website,...

Brigit’s killing Julius C.

Friends, Omahans, countrymen, lend me your ears: Brigit’s killing Julius C. at the Downtown Space this weekend. And director Cathy Kurz has Mark Scott in the title role of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. If that doesn’t stoke your theatrical fires it’s because you didn’t see him in Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre’s A View from the Bridge as Eddie Carbone. It ranks with Bill Hutson’s performance in M....

Coming ‘Round Again

Every now and then, Gordon Cantiello flies in to Omaha from San Diego and creates some musical theater. This time, he’s hired a few of the metro’s favorite vocalists to present The World Goes Round, a Kander-Ebb revue opening this weekend.

Laughter and Reflections

I wed Carol Burnett 15 years ago, so I have a number of questions for her Laughter and Reflections show which features her fielding queries from fans. Like, why haven’t we consummated the marriage? Being quick on the comeback, the performer may point out that I married a different Carol Burnett, one somewhat sweeter and lovelier but perhaps not as funny. But the rest of you might have less obvious questions, so...

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...
