Accent the Negative

What occupies Positive Space in the New BLK Gallery’s show may get all the attention, but its negative space is what largely gives the artwork its significance. While some of the paintings and sculpture of Justin Beller and digital prints of Daniel Muller strain a bit toward beauty and flirt with the decorative, many more excel because of their use of positive, negative space. The tactful use of negative space in...

Of Age

As Emily Litella always said on SNL, “Nev-er mind.” Forget my recent claim that Billy McGuigan offers the most fun to be had at the Omaha Community Playhouse.

Grown Woman

When Ariel Ibsen was a very little woman, a newborn babe, some assumed she was named for Disney’s then popular “Little Mermaid.” Now she’s 19 and directing Little Women, the play based on Louisa May Alcott’s novel, for Chanticleer Community Theater.

Theater Futures

* Two shows certain to have me dabbing at my eyes are Steel Magnolias at the Omaha Community Playhouse and Les Miserables, returning to the Orpheum in the Broadway Across America series. * I’ll hang around after Mary Poppins later this month to see if anyone suffers from the problem mentioned in its television commercials, namely feet that won’t stop tapping for an hour and a-half. I’d also cry for joy at its...
