Arts briefs: Theater, art and film




How much do they love Broadway?

Enough to come hard with an exclamation point all up in here.

Hence, we have "Broadway! One Hundred Fabulous Years" presented by the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society.

The revue will be performed by the 60-voice Musical Arts Chorus and guest soloists, accompanied by pianist Eric Eichorst.

What to expect?

A showcase of classics from the music of Tin Pan Alley to contemporary favorites, including "Hello, Dolly," "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin," "Send in the Clowns" and many more.

The program will also spotlight the career of Jerome Kern with selections from "Showboat" and "Roberta."

Clearly, "Everything's Coming Up Roses" for all you Broadway types.

See the show at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Nicolas J. Horn Theatre at the College of Southern Nevada, 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave., North Las Vegas. Tickets are $12 for adults, $9 for seniors, students, military personnel and disabled individuals; call 651-5483.



Fashion is art, on many levels, so can a fashion designer really become an artist if he or she already is one?

Well, it's all about the medium, we suppose, but still, it seems like a natural transition for Marcia Friedman.

A former fashion designer whose works were featured in publications such as Bazaar, Vogue and The New York Times, Friedman then delved into photography and impressionist paintings.

Her works are bold and striking, a combination of photography and acrylic painting or photos that have been altered, ranging from urban scenes to images of the countryside and many points in between.

See them at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and by appointment on Saturday and Sunday at the gallery at Brand, 8860 W. Sunset Road, Suite 200. Call 257-2345.




What were you doing when you were 12 years old?

Kind of embarrassing, huh?

Well, at that very age, Liz Taylor was establishing herself as a future queen of the silver screen in "National Velvet," which many consider to be her breakout role.

The film revolves around two kids (Taylor and Mickey Rooney) and their quest to win the Grand National horse race.

Check it out and see a pre-teen Taylor refuse to act her age. Watch it at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Main Theater at the Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Road. The show is free; call 507-3459.
