Buffalo Bill Strides Again

The Rose Theater has a brand-new work by Omaha’s Max Sparber calling forth images of this city and the nation’s past. It’s Buffalo Bill’s Cowboy Band, a primarily verbal, theatrical review of some of that icon’s adventures, Cody doing the telling.

The Long on the Shorts

As Violet from “Willy Wonka” or someone who just saw a spider will tell you, bigger isn’t necessarily better. An afterthought for most normals until Oscar night, short films are often bite-sized bits of delightful wonder.
