BWW Review: Milwaukee Rep Stages Beautiful, Breathtaking OF MICE AND MENBWW Review: Milwaukee Rep Stages Beautiful, Breathtaking OF MICE AND MEN
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jan 26, 2016

In a beautiful, breathtaking evening at Milwaukee Rep, Artistic Director Mark Clements reprises his critically acclaimed production Of Mice and Men. On stage, Todd Edward Ivins' elegant, grand set design creates a wooden bunkhouse where shadows flow onto the stage and complements Jesse Klug's sensual lighting.

Greenway Court Theatre to Present World Premiere of SWARM CELLGreenway Court Theatre to Present World Premiere of SWARM CELL
by BWW News Desk - Jan 15, 2016

Greenway Court Theatre Presents the World Premiere of SWARM CELL, written by Gabriel Rivas Gomez (Chasing Monsters, Scar Tissue, Thisability), directed by Robert Castro (Se Llama Cristina, Before the Revolution). Written by Gabriel Rivas Gomez, with contributions from Los Angeles' Fairfax High School.

In an economy turned on its head, the duo - one deaf, the other pregnant and undocumented - find work in a questionable warehouse intent on preying upon its roustabouts.

by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 1, 2015

In Of Mice and Men, writer John Steinbeck relates the tale of two lifelong friends whose hard-scrabble lives are played out against the backdrop of the Great Depression: two men whose bleak existence is made even more challenging by the cruel realities of the world at that time. Since its publication in 1937, Steinbeck's slim novella has inspired artists to offer different interpretations of the story - to varying degrees of success, to be certain - including numerous film versions, a Carlisle Floyd opera, ballets and stage productions, including a recent Broadway run and, closer to home, a production now onstage from Middle Tennessee's oldest community theater organization.
