Coots in Boots

Joe Coots was in Baltimore when we talked, but Kinky Boots was headed here so he was busy lining up Orpheum tickets for his Omaha cousins.

The musical that swept six Tony awards two years ago and arrives in Nebraska Oct. 20 isn’t the first job to bring the former football player to the Orpheum Theater. He played another big guy in The Full Monty, giving the ex-offensive lineman a chance to play Good Samaritan by...

We’ll Miss Trump When He’s Gone

I tried to a avoid writing about Trump and adding to the cacophony surrounding his presidential campaign, but I couldn't help myself.

There is no topic more alluring or gruesome than Trump, at least to a political junkie who approaches campaigns like sporting events. In that respect, Trump is that pro football team you always hated growing up. For me, it was the Dallas Cowboys, America's Team, which got all the...

There's an inside story to The Mynabirds' poignant new album Lovers Know, a story that begins way back in 2010 when the band's frontwoman, Laura Burhenn, still lived in Omaha.

Not quite three years ago, my boyfriend and I were invited to a wedding in Chicago. It was an intimate, beautiful affair. Only very close friends and family were invited. Everyone was flown to Chicago and put up in a stylish hotel. Every detail was planned to perfection, from meals and drinks to hair and makeup.

Eat to live or live to eat, Omaha’s culinary culture rises

If you're an Omaha foodie who believes as many do the local dining out experience has never been better, then you can thank an infusion of original chef-driven and chef-owned eateries for it.
