Deathtrap in Broadway DEATHTRAP
Milwaukee Chamber Theatre
8/10-8/27/2017
What would you do for a killer idea? Acclaimed but cash-strapped writer Sidney Bruhl has an exceptional new thriller in his hands. There’s just one problem: It was written by one of his students. Sydney and his wife quickly come up with a solution -- offer to collaborate with the young writer, and they can split the profits 50/50. No need to consider more … lethal solutions. Dripping with twists and turns, Ira Levin’s Tony-nominated play is both a spellbinding thriller and a devilishly clever comedy. You won’t know whether the next sound out of your mouth will be a laugh or a scream.

All-night rap sessions produced a series of tapes containing intimate details of the dancers’ drives, ambitions, dreams, and the daily challenges of existence in the theatre. Through a lengthy workshop process (unheard of at that time), these were woven into a piece that is both conceptually and structurally groundbreaking. Never before had American audiences heard a work that so seamlessly navigates show stopping numbers, dialogue, montage, ensembles, and monologues. For those in the early audiences, it was nothing short of revolutionary. A CHORUS LINE opened at the Shubert Theatre on Broadway July 25, 1975. An unprecedented box office and critically acclaimed hit, the musical won 9 Tony Awards, in addition to the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The original Broadway production ran for 6,137 performances over 15 years, becoming the longest-running production in Broadway history. About the Production Milwaukee Opera Theatre and Theater RED lend their unique vision to this iconic musical with a cast of seasoned Milwaukee performers looking back on their careers. As they reaffirm their deep love for the performing arts, recalling “What I Did For Love”, they simultaneously continue to reinvent themselves at new auditions; their “I Hope I Get It” anthem ringing alongside the young up-and-coming artists. Getting There The Stritch Performing Arts Center is located in the northwest quadrant of the Cardinal Stritch University Campus in the Joan Steele Stein Center for Communications and Fine Arts. Ample free parking is available, follow signs for the Nancy Kendall Theater and park in Lot 5.

CANDIDE in Broadway CANDIDE
Third Avenue Playhouse
7/27-9/2/2017
Featuring a splendid score by the unparalleled Leonard Bernstein, CANDIDE is a witty and wacky satire of an operetta. Based on Voltaire’s 1759 novella of the same name, Candide takes the audience on a round-the-world romp of idealistic optimism as it clashes with a series of absurdly unfortunate events. The young and naïve title character is betrothed to the Baron of Westphalia’s beautiful daughter Cunegonde, and along with the maid Paquette and Cunegonde’s brother Maximilian, they all subscribe firmly to the doctrine that has been instilled in them by their teacher Dr. Pangloss: that everything that occurs is for the best, no matter what. They soon find out that isn’t always the case.
