Set Design Genius

You don’t need me to tell you about the excitement called Eurydice that’s underway at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The daily’s Bob Fischbach drew a delicious sketch Sunday of the plans by designer Robbie Jones for Sara Ruhl’s twist on the classic story of Orpheus in the Underworld.

West Side Story opens Tuesday at Orpheum West Side Story’s Sharks are killers, says Arthur Laurents, who wrote the original book and directed the latest revival of Leonard Bernstein’s classic musical.

Two Giants

Fences and Talk Radio in review by Warren Francke Neither is tall, but both men tower like stage giants in starkly different roles. In Fences, John Beasley plays Troy, scarred by an abusive father and the mid-century bigotry that denied his baseball talent. In Talk Radio, Jerry Longe is far removed from his annual Scrooge role. In sunglasses and Led Zeppelin T-shirt, he’s Barry Champlain, a rock-star radio jock...
