Opera Omaha’s 2020-21 season announcement offers an intriguing surprise.
Wonderful music, a talented cast and a story of redemption make this Broadway musical worth seeing at the Orpheum. Other than a couple of missteps, "Les Misérables" is everything they say it is.
"A Raisin in the Sun" and "Murder on the Orient Express" premiere this week at metro area theaters. If you're in a Broadway mood, "Les Misérables" is playing at the Orpheum through Sunday.
Hercule Poirot, played by Jon Flower, is the central character in "Murder on the Orient Express," a play by Ken Ludwig that's based on a novel by legendary mystery writer Agatha Christie.
Retiree Karen Fox is portraying one of theater's signature roles in her very first play. She said she went to the audition mainly because she fit the age range. "There are not a lot of parts for people in their 60s, women especially," she said.
The program will include Florence Price's Piano Concerto in One Movement, Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 and George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue."
