Reader submitted blog DON'T Stop Giving to Komen ...LOCALLY!
...at least not based on the recent hub-ub.  After just watching the nightly news report (3-22-12), I realized that no where in the story did they mention that 75% of the money that YOU donate to the LOCAL affiliate STAYS HERE in Southeastern Wisconsin - that includes Race for the Cure (not ...

Reader submitted blog Your Heart Will Love These CRIMES
If you are of my generation (middle age-ish, OK 41), you probably remember CRIMES OF THE HEART from the 1986 movie, and not as the 1981 Pulitzer Prize winning play for drama. That will soon change. Milwaukee Chamber Theatre (MCT) just opened its season with the heartbreakingly funny play ...

Reader submitted blog Being A Homosexual Is Exhausting
Being a homosexual is exhausting. Seriously. I'm just off three days of Wisconsin PrideFest; both as a proud sponsor and representing my nonprofit, Public Allies. So, three very full days. The gay "culture," so to speak, is very active. First, you need to plan three days of...

Reader submitted blog SPIRITS TO ENFORCE a "Kick-Ass" Play
Youngblood is back in a big way. A big script, a big cast and to big accolades. What do you get when you mix 12 superheroes, a submarine and William Shakespeare? Well, it's called SPIRITS TO ENFORCE. That description alone makes this one-act play sound like a farce, and while it's funny and...

Reader submitted blog The NEW American Idol: What do YOU think?
IDOL JUDGES TURN THEIR NOSES UP AT ELLEN? The auditions were very much the same as in years past.  Familiar Idol-wannabees are representing year-to-year as always.  What's different is not four judges, but which four judges.  We know this is Simon's last year.  This is Randy's...

Reader submitted blog Go East, Young Actors!
They say “if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere” which is good news for local actors Lenny Banovez and Jake Russo.  The two Milwaukee-based actors took a chance this summer and up and moved to New York City to stage their own productions.  Banovez, along with fi...

Reader submitted blog Milwaukee's NEW Theatre Scene
Perhaps it is the rough economy.  Or a need to be heard.  Maybe it’s just the pendulum swinging back to another time in our creative history, but Milwaukee is seeing a boom in small theatre companies making a big impression on the arts.In just the past six months, two new companie...
