BWW Review: ONCE is Enough at Omaha Community Playhouse
February 28, 2020

Once in awhile a musical comes along that strikes the right chord. Irish musician Glen Hansard and Czech pianist Marketa Irglova collaborated on a stage version of the 2007 film by John Carney. This deceptively simple story won a Tony Award for Best Book by Enda Walsh along with 7 more wins out of 11 Tony nominations in 2012, including Best Musical, Best Orchestration, and Best Direction. Its most familiar song, 'Falling Slowly,' won an Academy Award and the cast album captured a Grammy.

BWW Previews: HOWIE D: BACK IN THE DAY at The Rose Theater
January 28, 2020

Which one is he? He is Howard Dorough, known as 'Howie D,' a member of the multiple Grammy nominated, gold and platinum selling boy band, the Backstreet Boys. Because of the frequency with which he has been mixed up over the years with singers from NSYNC or Menudo, Howie has written a song entitled, 'Which One Am I?' which humorously pokes fun at the mixups. Howie, however, knows who he is.

BWW Review: MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS is a Fun Ride at Bellevue Little Theatre
January 20, 2020

Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (Jon Flower) needs to catch the Orient Express during a heavy snowfall. That train is never filled during this time of year, but for some reason, today is an exception. Monsieur Constantine Bouc (Gene Hinkle) exerts his authority to book his friend Poirot into his first class cabin. During the ride to London, Samuel Ratchett (Justin Eller), an insufferable American business man, is found murdered. He has been stabbed 8 times. Super sleuth Poirot undertakes solving the mystery, knowing the murderer must be one of the passengers onboard. Everyone is present and accounted for. There are no footprints in the snow. Rumors of seeing a man stalking about the train dressed in a conductor's uniform compounds the mystery. The clues are dealt one at a time begging for solution.
