Art festivals usually are about viewing the work of artists and, then, maybe dropping a few dollars to purchase one of their pieces to display in your own home. But visitors to this weekend’s Art Festival of Henderson also will have the chance to take their artistic leanings one step further by putting their own talent to work by painting a piece that they can take home and hang on their own walls.
Jerry Lewis always has been associated with pictures — moving pictures, that is. During his Hollywood heyday, however, Lewis also trained his eye — and camera — on another type of pictures — and they’re the focus of a new exhibit opening Friday at UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum.
Drawing room comedies are tricky things. Stylistically, nobody did them better than Noel Coward. Then along comes a modernist one by Jon Robin Baitz, with crisp rather than droll dialogue. The main plot of “Other Desert Cities,” a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, brings to mind a couple of Pat Conroy novels.
In an era of Bluetooth technology and smart phones, an evening of operas centered on the old-fashioned telephone might seem as quaint as if the singers were riding about the stage in horse and buggy. Yet, Sin City Opera’s production of “The Telephone” by Gian Carlo Menotti and “The Human Voice” by Francis Poulenc are oddly resonant with modern technology, seeming to comment upon both obsessive texting and dropped cell calls. Can you hear me now?

Sexual innuendo is high as Las Vegas Little Theatre presents its 2014 New Works Competition Winner “Little Black Book” by Thomas J. Misuraca in their Fischer Black Box. In its firstever production, the show is a keenly hilarious, often bawdy, dramedy.
The Rainbow Company Youth Theatre production of “Ozma of Oz: A Tale of Time,” a stage adaption of the third Oz novel by L. Frank Baum opens on a minimalist set that consists of a stack of rainbow-colored suitcases, a wardrobe shaped box, a bucket and mop and chains hanging from the risers. A child seated behind me asked, “What is the bucket for? What are the chains for?” The child’s father answered wisely, “I don’t know, but we’ll find out.”
