Milwaukee is a theatre city. No, it’s not London, New York or Chicago, but Milwaukee has a wonderful theatre community. Whether you are going to the Marcus Center to see a Broadway production or to one of Milwaukee’s many professional or community theatres, there is something for everyone.
This weekend brings many choices in what you can go see. American Fiesta closes its run on Sunday at the Renaissance Theatre. And while one show is closing, two are opening.
The Skylight Opera is beginning its production of Rent. This award-winning musical is a must see. This modern day version of La Boheme runs through June 20.
Also opening this weekend is the Pink Banana Theatre’s annual One Act Festival at the Off Broadway Theatre. Eight one-act plays by local playwrights are featured in this fun and entertaining collection of plays. This show runs through June 5. And by the way, look for me in the final one-act.
With the UPAF (United Performing Arts Fund) campaign in full swing, get out there and support the arts.
