The reality of the new Blue Barn Theatre building still is sinking in for artistic director Susan Clement-Toberer.
She’s spent many late nights at the recently completed structure on 10th and Pacific Streets. But no matter how long she’s been there, she can’t resist driving around the corner on her way home to take in the beautiful new building — and to reflect on how it got there.
“I’ve been thinking about the people of Omaha who have chosen to make a difference in their community,” she said. “That’s pretty stellar.”
The public will get a chance to tour the theater’s new, permanent home Thursday night, starting with a 5:30 ribbon cutting followed by an open house until 7:30. What they will see is as eclectic and creative as the plays its owners have presented since a handful of recent graduates from the State University of New York in Purchase founded the Blue Barn in 1989
