Imago Theatre: FROGZ!

Date: Fri-Oct-24-2014

Location: South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center

Time: 7:30 pm



FROGZ! is penguins playing musical chairs, a cat trapped in a giant paper bag, orbs running wild through the audience, and a madcap revue of illusion, comedy and fun that has inspired audiences worldwide. FROGZ! has been performed in China, Europe and at some of North America's most revered festivals. FROGZ! has been described as Cirque Du Soleil- evoking acrobatics mixed with Mummenschanz- like mime, set in unique -yet accessible- French-influenced avant-garde playground. FROGZ! is the Portland, Oregon- based IMAGO's signature work. It is an unforgettable experience for children and adults alike. The ingenious masks, mesmerizing movemet, outlandish costumes, and original music score create a carnival of the absurd, presenting universal themes with a light touch, as animals take on human characteristics and inanimate objects like orbs and slinkys engage in silly humanistic movements. FROGZ! is often recognized by fans and critics alike as a remarkable addition to the American theatrical canon.

The Viper & His Famous Orchestra play the kind of music your great-great-grandparents warned your great-grandparents about. Burdened with four strings and the truth, The Viper and His Famous Orchestra deliver a powerful blend of street-corner jazz, front-porch country, and meeting-hall agitprop. The Famous Orchestra features a unique lineup of ukulele, trombone, upright bass, toy piano, stylophone, and suitcase. Their millennial DIY sound frames The Viper’s well-crafted songs about love, theft, buildings, bus routes, life in the key of Bb, and the work of skiffle in an age of mechanical reproduction. Mississippi Sawyer plays old time songs, traditional, and original music with members playing home-made instruments and household items as musical instruments. By virtue of appearing, they will double the usual on-stage suitcase count for a Viper show.

Gothic History Tours

Date: Fri-Oct-24-2014

Location: Cedarburg Cultural Center

Time: 7:00 pm



The Cedarburg Cultural Center proudly presents the popular “Gothic History Tours,” sponsored by Eernisse Funeral Home & BMO Harris Bank.

 

This year the Gothic History Tour introduces the spirits of both joy and tragedy as the tour wends its way through times of peace and war. Meet men who speak the languages of Europe but wear an American uniform to fight for their adopted country. Laugh with women planning an Irish wake and feel for the soldier who bears the scars of battle. From photographers to cleaning ladies, soldiers to activists, the phantoms of the area have returned for this gothic experience. Cedarburg, far from a backwater, delivers a world view of the years 1860 to 1940 through the eyes of the ghosts who lived them. Of course, we never forget our “apparitional residents” who love the town so much, they just won’t leave.

The 90-minute docent-led walking tours begin and end at the Cedarburg Cultural Center with stops at mysterious sites in downtown Cedarburg’s National Historic District and the Zur Ruhe Cemetery.

Tour dates and times:
Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 6:30pm
Friday, October 24, 2014 at 7:00pm
Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 7:00pm

Doors open 30 minutes before tour time

Guests should wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the evening’s weather conditions, as the tour takes place rain or shine. Tour groups are pre-assigned, so guests may notify the Center if family and friends purchasing tickets separately prefer to participate in the same tour group. Appropriate for ages 11 and up.

The Center is grateful to its sponsors, Eernisse Funeral Home & BMO Harris Bank, for supporting its mission as a gathering place to celebrate community, the arts and local heritage.

NEXT FALL

Date: Fri-Oct-24-2014

Location: Soulstice Theatre

Time: 8:00 pm



Theatrical Tendencies, Milwaukee's only LGBT-focused theatre company, is proud to present the Milwaukee premiere of Geoffrey Nauffts' NEXT FALL

NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment, and unconditional love.  While the play's central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam (an atheist) and Luke (a Christian), NEXT FALL goes beyond a typical love story.  This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to. "The funniest heartbreaker in town!  NEXT FALL embodies something theatergoers have been sorely missing, perhaps without knowing it, for years." -The New York Times "Deeply moving and surprisingly funny." -The Hollywood Reporter

 Things aren't going so well for Lord and Lady Killington, are they old chap? I say, they couldn't have timed their re-entry into polite society any worse now. This being the 50th anniversary of those rather tragic deaths at the Killingtons' beloved Gloomethorne Manor Murdertowne Abbey, after all. Fifty years to the night, to be exact, but never mind all that, whot? We do hope you came prepared for a spot of fun of the lethal variety. You'll be joined by a colorful cast of characters quite possibly in cahoots with the killer as the corpses multiply alarmingly. In addition to the Killingtons, you'll endure the eccentric charms of the war veteran emeritus Colonel Ashley Longbaugh, his vulgar American ward Loretta Swank-Longbaugh, the most honorable Inspector Sergeant Barnaby Tweed of Scotland Yard, the Butler, Winfield... oh and Misses Picklefeather, the unluckiest of housekeepers whoever trod the earth (but the less said of her, the better!).

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

THEATRE GIGANTEs 27th Season opens with revival of My Dear Othello

Date: Fri-Oct-24-2014

Location: Theatre Gigante at Kenilworth Studio 508

Time: 8:00 pm



Theatre Gigante Artistic Directors Isabelle Kralj & Mark Anderson bring back their 2004, critically acclaimed, wholly original work, My Dear Othello, inspired by Shakespeare’s Othello and Jose Limon’s The Moor’s Pavane. My Dear Othello succinctly explodes Shakespeare’s final few minutes into a full-length rumination upon power and ego. Like The Moor’s Pavane, My Dear Othello revolves around the four main characters -- Othello, Desdemona, Iago and Emilia.

Gigante, known for their unique theatrical innovation and originality, deconstructed and reconstructed this centuries-old tale, focusing not on the original themes of race, young innocence, and Venetian politics, but on our society’s contemporary themes – such as the power of lies, the hatred of the foreign element in society – and the destructive power of ego.

October 23, 24, 25 8pm, Nov 1 8pm, Nov 2 2pm, Nov 7 & 8 8pm

Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

Stitching History From the Holocaust

Date: Fri-Oct-24-2014

Location: Jewish Museum Milwaukee

Time: 10:00 am



Visit this new and profound exhibit about the impact of the Holocaust. In 1939 Hedwig and Paul Strnad of Prague sent a letter to Milwaukee cousin Alvin Strnad pleading for help to come to the United States.  They included 8 of Hedwig’s dress designs to show that they would be employable here.  Despite Alvin’s best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust. The Museum has had Hedwig’s dresses actually created to honor her legacy and to remember all of the talent lost in the Holocaust. Visit www.JewishMuseumMilwaukee.org for information about this special exhibit and exhibit programming.

Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

THEATRE GIGANTEs 27th Season opens with revival of My Dear Othello

Date: Sat-Oct-25-2014

Location: Theatre Gigante at Kenilworth Studio 508

Time: 8:00 pm



Theatre Gigante Artistic Directors Isabelle Kralj & Mark Anderson bring back their 2004, critically acclaimed, wholly original work, My Dear Othello, inspired by Shakespeare’s Othello and Jose Limon’s The Moor’s Pavane. My Dear Othello succinctly explodes Shakespeare’s final few minutes into a full-length rumination upon power and ego. Like The Moor’s Pavane, My Dear Othello revolves around the four main characters -- Othello, Desdemona, Iago and Emilia.

Gigante, known for their unique theatrical innovation and originality, deconstructed and reconstructed this centuries-old tale, focusing not on the original themes of race, young innocence, and Venetian politics, but on our society’s contemporary themes – such as the power of lies, the hatred of the foreign element in society – and the destructive power of ego.

August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Wine Social Tasting At The Milwaukee County Zoo Hallo-Wine Edition

Date: Sat-Oct-25-2014

Location: Milwaukee County Zoo

Time: 4:00 pm



Trick or treat give me something good to drink..... Choose from two event times: 4:00PM-6:30PM or 7:30PM-10:00PM. Costumes encouraged but nothing above PG-13 to avoid being on the next when animals attack tv episode. Did we mention express entry for those in costumes!!!

Did you know the lion prefers Cabernet Sauvignon, while tigers and cougars (not those) prefer Chardonnay? Ok, maybe our research isn't 100% accurate, but think about this—What kinds of wine do you prefer? Although they are a priority, we are not just about animals at Milwaukee County Zoo. Join us for The Wine Social hosted by GrapestoBottles. This not-so-regular wine tasting event with lions, where you will be able to visually interact with animals while tasting wine. Just don't offer to share!

Acquiring a taste for good wine is easier than you think, whether you are a novice or experienced wine drinker. It's mostly a matter of sampling a variety of wines, letting your taste buds become accustomed to the flavors of wine characteristics, and discovering what you like. With many different wines from variety of different regions and different countries, there will be something out there for everyone!

We also encourage you to take advantage of our wine social photo area. To capture embarrassing pictures of your friends, or maybe just of you and yours enjoying a delightful evening of wine tasting. Take snap shots of your favorite wines to check out for your next dinner party. But most importantly join our community by posting your favorites to your Instagram using the hashtag #grapestobottles

Other than a superb variety of wines, grapestobottles will wow you with a fabulous cheese bar. But please eat a hearty meal before attending the tasting as the only food available at the zoo is for the Big Cats. And just like humans with their wine, the animals don't like to share.

One last note: Parking: Currently, we have 190 parking spots available; therefore we strongly recommend car-pooling with your friends. Parking is on first-come-first-serve bases. Zoofari Conference Center is located one block east of Milwaukee County Zoo Entrance

Have a glass of wine with a lion and release your inner animal. It's like a wine tasting safari!


A few common FAQ:

Q: Is this a seated event?
A: No, Once you have checked in you are free to roam around and sample any of our great tables on hand at your own pace.

NEXT FALL

Date: Sat-Oct-25-2014

Location: Soulstice Theatre

Time: 8:00 pm



Theatrical Tendencies, Milwaukee's only LGBT-focused theatre company, is proud to present the Milwaukee premiere of Geoffrey Nauffts' NEXT FALL

NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment, and unconditional love.  While the play's central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam (an atheist) and Luke (a Christian), NEXT FALL goes beyond a typical love story.  This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to. "The funniest heartbreaker in town!  NEXT FALL embodies something theatergoers have been sorely missing, perhaps without knowing it, for years." -The New York Times "Deeply moving and surprisingly funny." -The Hollywood Reporter

Gothic History Tours

Date: Sat-Oct-25-2014

Location: Cedarburg Cultural Center

Time: 7:00 pm



The Cedarburg Cultural Center proudly presents the popular “Gothic History Tours,” sponsored by Eernisse Funeral Home & BMO Harris Bank.

 

This year the Gothic History Tour introduces the spirits of both joy and tragedy as the tour wends its way through times of peace and war. Meet men who speak the languages of Europe but wear an American uniform to fight for their adopted country. Laugh with women planning an Irish wake and feel for the soldier who bears the scars of battle. From photographers to cleaning ladies, soldiers to activists, the phantoms of the area have returned for this gothic experience. Cedarburg, far from a backwater, delivers a world view of the years 1860 to 1940 through the eyes of the ghosts who lived them. Of course, we never forget our “apparitional residents” who love the town so much, they just won’t leave.

The 90-minute docent-led walking tours begin and end at the Cedarburg Cultural Center with stops at mysterious sites in downtown Cedarburg’s National Historic District and the Zur Ruhe Cemetery.

Tour dates and times:
Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 6:30pm
Friday, October 24, 2014 at 7:00pm
Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 7:00pm

Doors open 30 minutes before tour time

Guests should wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the evening’s weather conditions, as the tour takes place rain or shine. Tour groups are pre-assigned, so guests may notify the Center if family and friends purchasing tickets separately prefer to participate in the same tour group. Appropriate for ages 11 and up.

The Center is grateful to its sponsors, Eernisse Funeral Home & BMO Harris Bank, for supporting its mission as a gathering place to celebrate community, the arts and local heritage.

There are three different mysteries; each is performed on a different weekend. Choose one, two or all three; each story is independent and can be enjoyed without seeing either of the others.

• Sherlock Holmes and a Most Irregular Tea Party; October 10-12. Join the Baker Street Irregulars at the home of Sherlock Holmes for an action-packed party hosted by Mrs. Hudson. You'll help Sherlock and Watson solve the unexpected mysteries of the evening and keep the streets of London safe!

• Sherlock Holmes and a Regrettable Engagement; October 17-19. It's supposed to be a quiet night at 221-B Baker Street for Mrs. Hudson and the Irregulars. But Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are about to get more than they bargained for when Professor James Moriarty stops by with a trick or two up his sleeve. Help Sherlock and Watson face off against their most legendary and notorious foe. The game is afoot!

• Sherlock Holmes and the Final Vow; October 24-26. Irregulars: You are cordially invited to the wedding of Dr. John Watson and Ms. Mary Morstan. It's supposed to be a day of celebration and joy, but nothing ever goes quite according to plan inside the storied walls of 221B. Join us for an unforgettable farewell to Sherlock Holmes at Old World Wisconsin. Written and directed by Elizabeth Shipe. Best enjoyed by ages 12 and up.

 (Sophie Hyde, Australia, 109 min., 2013)

A year of Tuesdays accumulate into a beautiful drama of the evolving relationship between a teenage girl and her gender-transitioning mother in this award-winning new film from Australia.

A remarkable family story in a festival of remarkable family stories, 52 Tuesdays is a year – truly 52 consecutive Tuesdays – in the relationship between a mother and a daughter. These Tuesdays comprise the year the mother starts to gender transition and sends her daughter, 16 year-old Billie, to live with her father, the two agreeing to reserve Tuesday afternoons as regularly scheduled time together.

The year brings changes for both of them: James, the transitioning parent, working to declare his identity while maintaining a sense to the relationship with the daughter he loves, and Billie, unmoored a bit, and maybe somewhat defiant, beginning to explore her own sexuality, making clumsy stabs at adulthood in the process. Both stumble towards new declarations of identity, and the balance the two work to sustain between their own relationship and their emerging sense of self makes for a compelling, quite moving dance.

The film-making itself worked to meet the dictates of the characters’ relationship. Filmmaker Sophie Hyde shot the film over the course of a single year also, in chronological order -- and only on Tuesdays. The non-professional cast got their scripts, and only their own lines, one week in advance. No gimmick this: 52 Tuesdays accumulates powerfully, the aches and triumphs of the characters genuinely felt.

Winner: Sundance 2014: Best Director, World Cinema

Berlin Film Festival 2014: Crystal Bear award, for best film about young people.

A ghostly tale as powerful and mysterious as the sea itself. A tormented ship's captain is condemned to endlessly sail the seas for eternity, only to be released of his curse by the true love of one woman.

Bass-baritone Wayne Tigges (Olin Blitch in Susannah, 2012) returns as the tormented Dutchman, opposite British soprano Alwyn Mellor making her Florentine debut as Senta. Florentine favorite bass Peter Volpe (Don Giovanni in Don Giovanni, 2006; Timur in Turandot, 2011; and Zuniga in Carmen, 2012) returns as Senta’s father, Daland. Danish tenor David Danholt makes his debut as Erik, and mezzo-soprano Jenni Bank (Marcellina in The Marriage of Figaro, 2013) sings Mary. Maestro Joseph Rescigno (conducting for Florentine productions dating back to 1981) conducts the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra in this new production directed by Paula Suozzi.

Sung in German with English supertitles projected above the stage.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Milwaukeeans: YOU asked for it, and now you've got it! Each and every year, we receive requests from our tour guests asking that we create routes around particular types of food. Per your requests, we've decided to host a series of special tours doing exactly that.

These limited edition tours are different than our traditional routes because:

- They are offered on a very limited basis. Be sure to snap up your tickets now before the particular food genre is "retired" from this special tour series.
- During the tour, we will sample only that genre of food, for example - we'll visit 4 BBQ locations.
- This tour is light on history. Instead, use this tour as an opportunity to sample a particular food with like-minded individuals.
- Please don't confuse this tour as a "Best of" or "Top Places" list. We'll be featuring a unique compilation of our tour guide and fellow Milwaukeean favorites, in no particular order.
- These 3-hour bus tours will depart from downtown Milwaukee and feature stops at 4 - 5 locations throughout the area. Guests on this special tour will be treated to generously sized samples of the featured food item at each of the 4 - 5 stops.

FALL 2014 FEATURE: BBQ

Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

 Things aren't going so well for Lord and Lady Killington, are they old chap? I say, they couldn't have timed their re-entry into polite society any worse now. This being the 50th anniversary of those rather tragic deaths at the Killingtons' beloved Gloomethorne Manor Murdertowne Abbey, after all. Fifty years to the night, to be exact, but never mind all that, whot? We do hope you came prepared for a spot of fun of the lethal variety. You'll be joined by a colorful cast of characters quite possibly in cahoots with the killer as the corpses multiply alarmingly. In addition to the Killingtons, you'll endure the eccentric charms of the war veteran emeritus Colonel Ashley Longbaugh, his vulgar American ward Loretta Swank-Longbaugh, the most honorable Inspector Sergeant Barnaby Tweed of Scotland Yard, the Butler, Winfield... oh and Misses Picklefeather, the unluckiest of housekeepers whoever trod the earth (but the less said of her, the better!). All right now, who turned out the lights?

The artists ask how our ongoing relationships to digital culture continuously change what we move and think and feel.

Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

Acro-Cats Celebrate Halloween in Spooktacular Style

Date: Thu-Oct-30-2014

Location: Theater Unchained

Time: 8:00 pm



Theater Unchained (1024 S. 5th Street in Milwaukee, WI) welcomes the Amazing Acro-Cats for Halloween purr-formances from October 30 –November 2, 2014! A 1st quarter moon will be making ghostly shadows when the Acro-Cats open on Thursday, October 30 at 8 pm. Shows continue on Halloween Night, Friday, October 31 at 8 pm, Saturday, November 1 at 2 pm, 5 pm and 8 pm and Sunday, November 2 at 1 pm, 4 pm and 7 pm. Tickets are $18 each – General Admission. There’s a CASH BAR with a one drink minimum.

Just in time for Halloween, Samantha Martin adds special thrills and chills to her one-of-a-kind Acro-Cats purr-formances with cat-marish tricks including jumping through skeleton wreaths, rolling pumpkins, jumping over tombstones and more! There will be a special appearance by The Rock Cats (or for these purr-formances, The Skele-Cats) playing seasonally themed selections such as “Don’t Purr the Reaper,” “Ooh, Ooh, WitchyKitty,” and “Cat-ster Mash.”

Samantha Martin, Chief Executive Human for this troupe of Frightful Felines, fully disproves the notion that “cats can’t be trained.” What you’ll see these Count Cat-ulas do is no ap-purr-ition, but real household cats - trained using the clicker training method of which Martin is an advocate. Most of the Acro-Cats are strays, orphans and rescue cats and kittens fostered, adopted and trained by Martin. A portion of Acro-Cats ticket sales benefits cat and kitten rescue.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Time: 8:00 pm



Theater Unchained (1024 S. 5th Street in Milwaukee, WI) welcomes the Amazing Acro-Cats for Halloween purr-formances from October 30 –November 2, 2014! A 1st quarter moon will be making ghostly shadows when the Acro-Cats open on Thursday, October 30 at 8 pm. Shows continue on Halloween Night, Friday, October 31 at 8 pm, Saturday, November 1 at 2 pm, 5 pm and 8 pm and Sunday, November 2 at 1 pm, 4 pm and 7 pm. Tickets are $18 each – General Admission. There’s a CASH BAR with a one drink minimum.

Just in time for Halloween, Samantha Martin adds special thrills and chills to her one-of-a-kind Acro-Cats purr-formances with cat-marish tricks including jumping through skeleton wreaths, rolling pumpkins, jumping over tombstones and more! There will be a special appearance by The Rock Cats (or for these purr-formances, The Skele-Cats) playing seasonally themed selections such as “Don’t Purr the Reaper,” “Ooh, Ooh, WitchyKitty,” and “Cat-ster Mash.”

Samantha Martin, Chief Executive Human for this troupe of Frightful Felines, fully disproves the notion that “cats can’t be trained.” What you’ll see these Count Cat-ulas do is no ap-purr-ition, but real household cats - trained using the clicker training method of which Martin is an advocate. Most of the Acro-Cats are strays, orphans and rescue cats and kittens fostered, adopted and trained by Martin. A portion of Acro-Cats ticket sales benefits cat and kitten rescue.

“Harris Cashes Out”
Comedy by Londos D’Arrigo

Forty years ago, Harris Wellborn wrote an off-Broadway musical which infamously closed after just one performance. We find the now-elderly tunesmith down on his luck, living in a run-down apartment building dependent on the charity of his domineering sister- yet still dreaming of making it on Broadway.

The laughs unfold when the witty Harris is thrown together with the flaky young woman and her scheming boyfriend who live down the hall. Thanks to the magic of the internet, Wellborn’s life takes a hilarious and unexpected turn when his neighbors come up with a devious plan to cash in on Harris’ past.

Winner of the 1971 Pulitzer Prize as Best American Play of the season, this powerful and moving study of an embittered, vindictive widow and her two young daughters has been hailed as one of the most significant and affecting plays of our time. The timeless lesson of the play – that something beautiful and full of promise can emerge from even the most barren, afflicted soil – is the root of its moving power and truth.

Directed by Mallory Metoxen

With Niffer Clarke, Kat Wodtke, Megan Kaminsky, Eva Nimmer and Marilyn White

This production is made possible through generous support from David Paris Dentistry.

Gallery Night & Gallery Day: October 17 & October 18

In his unique and now well-known printmaking process, Nathaniel Stern straps a desktop scanner, laptop and custom-made battery pack to his body, and performs images into existence. He might scan in straight, long lines across tables, tie the scanner around his neck and swing over flowers, do pogo-like gestures over bricks, or just follow the wind over water lilies in a pond. The dynamism between his body, technology, and the landscape is transformed into beautiful and quirky renderings, which are then produced as archival art objects for exhibition.

For the latest in his series, Stern has worked with a team at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to design and construct a custom, open-source, depth-rated waterproof rig, so as to scuba while scanning sub-aqueous terrain – including a live coral reef on the Gulf Coast. Here the artist folds not only time and space into his printed images, but also the impacts of water and land, life and non-life, that we perform with every day: as individuals, and as a people. The resulting artworks are full of care, thought, and wonder.

Through her colorful series The Ladies, Nancy Mladenoff explores the lives of American women who have found significant roles beyond that of wife and mother. Often unknowingly acting as mentors for other women, the heroes depicted in The Ladies are from all walks of life: science, the arts, sports and more. Mladenoff earned her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and teaches painting at the University of Wisconsin. She has exhibited her work internationally, and The Ladies were included in the 2014 Wisconsin Triennial. The Ladies 2 is her first solo exhibition with Tory Folliard Gallery.

Time: 10:00 am



Ten Chimneys is the estate lovingly created by theatre legends Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Those who visit, like guests of the Lunts, are welcomed into the Lunts' extraordinary home without the fuss of ropes or barriers. Guests are placed in small groups and are led through the estate by knowledgeable docents, who share stories that interpret not only the objects and decor of the estate, but also the lives and values of its remarkable creators, Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne. Often considered “the center of the theatrical world,” luminaries such as Noël Coward, Laurence Olivier, and Katharine Hepburn were all frequent and devoted Ten Chimneys guests. Tours are available from 10:00am-2:30pm, Tuesday through Saturday and 12:00pm-2:30pm on Sunday. Call (262) 968-4110 to make your reservation.
