Canvas and Cabernet opens in Aksarben

Walking into Canvas and Cabernet, a new addition to the Aksarben area, you might not be sure what you're getting yourself into.
On one side, the walls are covered in seemingly elementary paintings. The walls on the opposite side are lined with artistic masterpieces.  There is a stage and about 20 painting stations.  Keep walking and there are shelves with eclectic items for sale. Keep walking farther, and you'll run into the bar.
At this point, you aren't really sure if you're in a bar, gallery, gift shop or classroom.
The truth is that Canvas and Cabernet is all of these things.  It is an exciting new venue that offers instructed painting "classes" to groups. But, this isn't your average painting class.


UNO theatre opens season with ‘The Government Inspector’

No one is who they seem in UNO's adaptation of "The Government Inspector," which opened this past weekend. Originally written in 1836 by Nikolai Gogol and adapted by Jeffery Hatcher in 2008, UNO's Douglas Paterson took the play one step further with an adaptation of his own. Paterson, who directed the play, moved the time and setting of the piece from Russia in the 1830s to our own familiar Omaha, Neb. in 1861.


Enjoyable, but falls short; “Stand Up Guys” doesn’t quite get there

When you're given a script which calls for obvious, impending doom and you have a cast that includes Al Pacino and Christopher Walken it's best to just get out of the way and allow the magic to happen. However, in "Stand Up Guys" there's a sense that director Fisher Stevens was overreaching for something too complex and putting too many fingerprints on a canvas better left to the brush of the actors involved.
The story revolves around two friends, Val (Pacino) and Doc (Walken) who at one time decades ago were involved in organized crime. Val is being released from prison after serving a 28-year sentence in connection to a gunfight. Doc greets him outside the prison gate and a trip down memory lane ensues.
