<p>  Children Of Eden</p> Will Eve Listen to Snake This Time?

I don’t want to spoil the suspense if you’re attending Children of Eden this weekend at the Bellevue Little Theatre, but I suspect you know how this one comes out.

            Maybe director Julian Adair has a few tricks up her sleeve, but I’m afraid Eve’s apt to let the serpent talk her into eating the apple and Adam won’t have much luck when he tells God to blame “that woman you gave me.”

            There’s...

Top Talents Return for Chicago’s Razzle-Dazzleing

A star was born when Kirstin Kluver played Adelaide last spring in the Omaha Community Playhouse musical Guys and Dolls. She's back as Roxie Hart in Chicago and sharing top billing with two long-proven performers, Melanie Walters and Seth Fox.

            When Melanie plays the other homicidal hoofer, Velma Kelly, it becomes “my first show back” after giving birth 11 months ago to baby Leo. Her infant son could...

Timely Arrival of End Days Play

So why am I touting a staged reading of End Days on a weekend when Jersey Boys just opened at the Orpheum and Babes in Toyland is underway at Chanticleer in Council Bluffs, not to mention that Chicago and Children of Eden add to the musical menagerie next weekend at the Omaha Community Playhouse and Bellevue Little Theatre?

            For starters, you can read more about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons...

Can’t Take Eyes Off Jersey Boys Frankie

 

No one has been one of the Jersey Boys longer than Joseph Leo Bwarie, now into his fourth year as Frankie Valli. He’s appeared with at least five different actors as each of the other Four Seasons.

            He keeps it fresh, thanks to audiences that go wild when the boys from the wrong side of the tracks make it big on every one of the more than 1,000-plus nights he’s played the iconic rocker. And it...
