by Herbert Paine - Apr 5, 2016

Scott Greer delivers a stirring performance that cuts straight to the heart and gives heart to Arizona Theatre Company and Milwaukee Repertory Theater's co-production of OF MICE AND MEN. There is artistry, substance, and depth enough in Steinbeck's allegory of man's existential struggle to make this staging a must-see before it leaves Phoenix. (more...)

BWW Preview: MKE Ballet and Michael Pink Elevate Ballet Culture in World Premiere of Wilde's DORIAN GRAYBWW Preview: MKE Ballet and Michael Pink Elevate Ballet Culture in World Premiere of Wilde's DORIAN GRAY
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Feb 15, 2016

If as Oscar Wilde wrote, 'Beauty is a form of genius, indeed a higher form of genius, and needs no explanation,' the Milwaukee Ballet and Michael PInk affirm this statement with a resounding performance of their World Premiere ballet Dorian Gray. Based on Wilde's late 19th century novella, Pink and his 'dream team,'--Lighting Designer David Grill, Composer Philip Fenney and Costume/Scenic Designer Todd Edward Ivins--sparked magical genius in the first full length ballet staged in the Historic Pabst Theater. Ivins spoke the essence of the moment when he stated, 'A historic occasion in a historic theater.' (more...)

Coming this February, Milwaukee Ballet and Artistic Director Michael Pink introduce their World Premiere ballet Dorian Gray. Based on the British 1980 novel by Oscar Wilde, Pink originally debuted another version of this story in Augsburg, Germany two years ago. This year in Milwaukee, PInk commissioned a new score by Philip Feeney, scenic and costume designs by Todd Edward Ivins, and returns Emmy award-winning Lighting Designer David Grill to envision the ominous story.. Grill will be at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, February 7, and then 'after lighting Coldplay will light the Milwaukee Ballet.' This tour-de-force creative collaboration underscores fresh choreography by Pink to produce another full-length ballet performed for the first time in the Historic Pabst Theater over two full winter weekends.

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. These technical elements elevate John Steinbeck's bindlestiffs and ranch hands set in 1935 California that represent humanity's great struggles to connect to another human being and achieve lofty if sometimes, unattainable dreams.

I always say that the mark of a good story can make us alter the way we think. In attending the East Coast premiere of Five Presidents at the Bay Street Theatre, by way of the Arizona Theatre Company and Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, I actually found myself sympathizing, if slightly, for people that I, frankly, don't like… politicians.
