Taking a Stab At Comedy

UNO grad Rob Urbinati has been spending time recently at his alma mater directing a new version of his comedy Death by Design, first staged in Houston in 2011.

Blue Barn Theatre houses a fresh, often hilarious, contemporized, profanity-spiked take on Henrik Ibsen’s Peer Gynt. This version, called Gnit, is written by a guy from Massachusetts, Will Eno. The skilled actors get a lot of good results out of what’s there. They especially make the best of a multitude of funny lines without ever going overboard, thanks, no doubt, to director Susan Clement-Toberer’s take on how...
