Logan Mize and Jill Martin, Thursday March 18:
Friday’s show may be sold out, but you can still get tickets for country power couple Jill Martin and Logan Mize’s Thursday night show at The Waiting Room Lounge. The pair often perform onstage together, and if you’re lucky you may catch them bringing their little ones up to harmonize as well. Omaha was fortunate to get two whole evenings of the duo on their tour across the eastern U.S., so take advantage and enjoy this family act. Get your tickets here now.

Fully Committed, Friday, March 19 to Sunday, April 11:
Omaha Community Playhouse is back in full force with yet another local performance. Fully Committed, a play by Becky Mode, features a single actor playing 40 larger-than-life characters. In Omaha Community Playhouse’s rendition, Josh Peyton plays Sam, a struggling New York actor who mans the reservation line for the hottest restaurant in NYC, one that its head chef says is “fully committed” three months out. Sam hopes for a callback to kick off his career as he takes calls from celebrities, socialites, and everyday Joes who are gunning for the trendiest table in town. Get tickets here!
