EPITHETICALLY VOLATILE

It’s been nearly 40 years since David Mamet pounced onto the stage with his salty verbosity in American Buffalo. Since then he’s acquired a major rep for showing tough guys in screwy schemes, wheeling and dealing like all get out. 

The production at Blue Barn, superbly directed by Susan Clement-Toberer encapsulates that essence, with a rock solid cast socking it to us definitively, simmering with personality and...

A CHILD’S GARDEN OF INNOCENCE

The playing space is dominated by a massive fence. It surrounds the only territory for Mickey and Sage, currently revealed at Shelterbelt Theatre. There is another interior territory, however, covering more than what is immediately visible and audible. Two children, contained and restricted within that wall, remain sweet, charming and amusing while other parts of their lives beyond their physical boundaries harbor...

<p>The Fred Simon Gallery features the personal abstraction of Kim Reid Kuhn in her show, ‘The Sacraments of Domesticity’

The thirteen works by Omaha-based artist Kim Reid Kuhn currently on display at the Fred Simon Gallery (a great space tucked within the offices of the Nebraska Arts Council at 1004 Farnam) are rewarding to the eye in ways that are not easy to capture in prose. 

Formally inventive, whimsical, and psychologically involving all at the same time, Reid Kuhn’s images are made even more interesting by her clear desire to...
