Brulé's holiday special

'Red Nativity' entertaining, educationalPlaying at the Orpheum Theatre Saturday night, the two-hour production neatly educated, entertained and enlightened.

Those unfamiliar with the group could latch onto familiar Christmas carols--"Silent Night," "We Three Kings," "O Holy Night"--and find an opening into the world of the Lakota tribe.

Paul LaRoche, founder of the South Dakota-based band, set the songs to a Native American beat, added superior dancing and augmented it all with Broadway-style lighting.
