Omaha, NE – The first Black Quarterback to start a game in the NFL is getting a life sized statue in his hometown. Marlin Briscoe played at the University of Nebraska at Omaha when it was still called Omaha University. KVNO’s Brandon McDermott had a chance to sit down with Briscoe and filed this report.
Opera Omaha will show Flight, directed by James Darrah, Friday, April 21 and Sunday, April 23.
Flight tells the story of a diverse bunch of travelers trapped in an airport during inclement weather. A couple sorts out their relationship while flight attendants engage in a romantic tryst. All of their narratives are tied together by the story of a refugee living in the terminal of the airport, played by internationally performing countertenor Nicholas Tamagna.
