Mirror Mirror in Broadway MIRROR MIRROR
Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
In a battle of beauty versus beauty, things are bound to get ugly. This is the case in Michael Pink's world premiere ballet, presented by Donna and Donald Baumgartner. A pure young beauty goes up against her sinister seductress of a stepmother. The story is inspired by Snow White. Composer Philip Feeney returns with a new blockbuster score performed live by the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra. The costumes are inspired by the brilliant Alexander McQueen. The choreography? Simply inspired. With dark, striking set design and beautiful ballerinas, appearances are everything. Which makes Mirror Mirror a must-see.

I Hear America Singing in Broadway I HEAR AMERICA SINGING
Skylight Music Theatre

Skylight is very excited to be collaborating with composer and Milwaukee native Daron Hagen on a musical revue created just for Skylight. Audiences will hear a variety of great American musical theatre numbers, art songs and opera excerpts, as Skylight entertains like no one else can!

Hair in Broadway HAIR
Skylight Music Theatre
It's the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and Skylight couldn't be more excited to close this historic season with Hair. This Tony Award-winning musical captures the spirit of the 60s hippie movement through the interactions of "the tribe". Ground-breaking in many ways, from its rock and roll score to its multi-racial cast, Hair took on such themes as pacifism, race, drug use and yes, nudity. This show contains mature themes and brief nudity. For those reasons we do not recommend this show for anyone younger than high school age.
