David's RedHaired Death

Date: Fri-Apr-18-2014

Location: Underground Collaborative

Time: 7:30 pm



David's Redhaired Death tells a story of love, life altering decisions and death. We can all relate to the story regardless of who we love or have loved in our lives. Jean and Marilyn meet through their mutual friend and quickly fall in love. The turbulent affair is confusing and complicated but their connection is undeniable. They become mirrors of each other, reflecting self-love, sisterly love, and romantic love, as their worlds transform around them into a redhead world of their own making.

At the moment of true connection, their relationship is put to the test when the phone rings. Jean's brother, David, is dead. The news comes crashing down on top of them. Now they are faced with a choice. How can this new love move forward through death? Will tragedy redefine the beauty of the moments they have shared? Or will they choose to move beyond death and embrace the present moment? Their story offers us something of ourselves, and challenges us to examine our own lives for the traumas and emotions to which we cling that prevent us from finding our own happiness.

Poppy and Jesse made a pact some years back, before retirement, before ill health. But conditions have changed and the full weight of their agreement is now upon them. If one dies, will the other willingly follow? Will husband and wife leave their lives behind while they still have the choice? With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark "concept" show, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. Company follows our anti-hero bachelor Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl who's going to marry someone else), Marta (the "peculiar" one), as well as with his married friends.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to "those good and crazy people," his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life. In the end, he realizes being alone is "alone, not alive."

We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel - son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Date: Fri-Apr-18-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 10:00 am



Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike. Josh’s expressive images capture his friend’s reactions to the situation or to what is being seen. The prospect of missing that one moment, both from the perspective of experiencing it and the possibilities of catching it on film, lures Josh back to the road.

More than thirty original photographs by Josh Kurpius will be on display. Living Lost runs from January 17, 2014 through May 18, 2014.

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Date: Sat-Apr-19-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 10:00 am



Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike.

INOVA presents the work of two emerging artists in their first major solo exhibitions. Lisa Selby pairs sculpted but unfired clay objects with found materials as she investigates the rituals and forms of domestic life. As the raw clay dries, the sculptures become meditations on time and transformation. Benjamin DeMott utilizes thin lines of extruded porcelain to build delicate, linear constructions that reflect the peculiarities of light and architecture in the exhibition space. DeMott will engage the details of INOVA gallery's architecture with this new body of work. Presented in conjunction with the 2014 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference held in Milwaukee March 19-22.

We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel - son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel - son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

Note: No performance Sunday April 20 (Easter Sunday)

Added 2:00 matinee Saturday April 19

The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark "concept" show, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. Company follows our anti-hero bachelor Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl who's going to marry someone else), Marta (the "peculiar" one), as well as with his married friends.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to "those good and crazy people," his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life. In the end, he realizes being alone is "alone, not alive."

Time: 4:30 pm



Poppy and Jesse made a pact some years back, before retirement, before ill health. But conditions have changed and the full weight of their agreement is now upon them. If one dies, will the other willingly follow? Will husband and wife leave their lives behind while they still have the choice? With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

David's RedHaired Death

Date: Sat-Apr-19-2014

Location: Underground Collaborative

Time: 7:30 pm



David's Redhaired Death tells a story of love, life altering decisions and death. We can all relate to the story regardless of who we love or have loved in our lives. Jean and Marilyn meet through their mutual friend and quickly fall in love. The turbulent affair is confusing and complicated but their connection is undeniable. They become mirrors of each other, reflecting self-love, sisterly love, and romantic love, as their worlds transform around them into a redhead world of their own making.

At the moment of true connection, their relationship is put to the test when the phone rings. Jean's brother, David, is dead. The news comes crashing down on top of them. Now they are faced with a choice. How can this new love move forward through death? Will tragedy redefine the beauty of the moments they have shared? Or will they choose to move beyond death and embrace the present moment? Their story offers us something of ourselves, and challenges us to examine our own lives for the traumas and emotions to which we cling that prevent us from finding our own happiness.

Bacchus Ball - A Night of Masquerade and Mystique

Location: Club Anything

Time: 10:00 pm



Join Club Anything for our April variety act show honoring a God who knows how to party - Bacchus! A mask is requested to enter this masquerade event, as is the desire to foster a wicked hangover from the debauchery this night will inevitably bestow upon our guests. Experience comedy, performance art, and burlesque brought to you by locally loved drag queen, Jezebel LaVey; burlesque dancer Theda de Sade (from Dead Man's Carnival); cabaret performers from Chez Bouche' - Miss Aleksandra, Tyler Falco-Schott, Odari Kimani, Randy Bouche; performance art by Skully Sati and Gabrielle Hanner; and comedy by Marcos Lara and Shaleigh Fitzpatrick. Event will be hosted by comedian Jason Hillman, and DJ Ryan Bedlam from Chicago will be spinning tracks to make you dance in ecstasy, Bacchus style. Raffles will ensue throughout the night offering prizes ranging from tarot readings, free admissions to future events, t-shirts, and oddities. Get your mask and prepare yourselves to be swept away as we lose track of time and identities in honor of the God "whose wine, music, and ecstatic dance frees his followers from self-conscious fear and care, and subverts the oppressive restraints of the powerful."  This will be a night to remember, that is, unless you get too drunk on wine to forget. ;)

With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel - son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Date: Sun-Apr-20-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 10:00 am



Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike. Josh’s expressive images capture his friend’s reactions to the situation or to what is being seen. The prospect of missing that one moment, both from the perspective of experiencing it and the possibilities of catching it on film, lures Josh back to the road.

More than thirty original photographs by Josh Kurpius will be on display. Living Lost runs from January 17, 2014 through May 18, 2014.

Artists included in the show are John Ty Bender, Angela Biederman, Dana Childs, Christopher Davis-Benavides, Karin Davis, Karen Gunderman, Namim Kim, Deborah Rael-Buckley, Barbara Reinhart, Charles Timm-Ballard, and Linda Wervey Vitamvas.

The Great Depression of the 1930s caused massive personal and economic devastation world-wide.
In Wisconsin, despite many different government programs, countless people were unable to find work.
The Milwaukee Handicraft Project (MHP) employed thousands of women, teaching them to make wooden
and cloth toys, furniture, books, and more. It became a national model, boosting morale and giving its workers skills that they never knew they had.

Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Poppy and Jesse made a pact some years back, before retirement, before ill health. But conditions have changed and the full weight of their agreement is now upon them. If one dies, will the other willingly follow? Will husband and wife leave their lives behind while they still have the choice? With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

David's RedHaired Death

Date: Mon-Apr-21-2014

Location: Underground Collaborative

Time: 7:30 pm



David's Redhaired Death tells a story of love, life altering decisions and death. We can all relate to the story regardless of who we love or have loved in our lives. Jean and Marilyn meet through their mutual friend and quickly fall in love. The turbulent affair is confusing and complicated but their connection is undeniable. They become mirrors of each other, reflecting self-love, sisterly love, and romantic love, as their worlds transform around them into a redhead world of their own making.

At the moment of true connection, their relationship is put to the test when the phone rings. Jean's brother, David, is dead. The news comes crashing down on top of them. Now they are faced with a choice. How can this new love move forward through death? Will tragedy redefine the beauty of the moments they have shared? Or will they choose to move beyond death and embrace the present moment? Their story offers us something of ourselves, and challenges us to examine our own lives for the traumas and emotions to which we cling that prevent us from finding our own happiness.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as American art struggled to find its own voice separate from the classical European style that dominated the art world, an authentically American artistic expression was identified in the work of folk and self-taught artists.

The Great Depression of the 1930s caused massive personal and economic devastation world-wide.
In Wisconsin, despite many different government programs, countless people were unable to find work.
The Milwaukee Handicraft Project (MHP) employed thousands of women, teaching them to make wooden
and cloth toys, furniture, books, and more. It became a national model, boosting morale and giving its workers skills that they never knew they had.

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Date: Wed-Apr-23-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 10:00 am



Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike. Josh’s expressive images capture his friend’s reactions to the situation or to what is being seen. The prospect of missing that one moment, both from the perspective of experiencing it and the possibilities of catching it on film, lures Josh back to the road.

More than thirty original photographs by Josh Kurpius will be on display. Living Lost runs from January 17, 2014 through May 18, 2014.

Time: 12:00 pm



INOVA presents the work of two emerging artists in their first major solo exhibitions. Lisa Selby pairs sculpted but unfired clay objects with found materials as she investigates the rituals and forms of domestic life. As the raw clay dries, the sculptures become meditations on time and transformation. Benjamin DeMott utilizes thin lines of extruded porcelain to build delicate, linear constructions that reflect the peculiarities of light and architecture in the exhibition space. DeMott will engage the details of INOVA gallery's architecture with this new body of work. Presented in conjunction with the 2014 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference held in Milwaukee March 19-22.

Opening Reception: March 20th from 6-8pm.

And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

Poppy and Jesse made a pact some years back, before retirement, before ill health. But conditions have changed and the full weight of their agreement is now upon them. If one dies, will the other willingly follow? Will husband and wife leave their lives behind while they still have the choice? With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

Poppy and Jesse made a pact some years back, before retirement, before ill health. But conditions have changed and the full weight of their agreement is now upon them. If one dies, will the other willingly follow? Will husband and wife leave their lives behind while they still have the choice? With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

David's RedHaired Death

Date: Thu-Apr-24-2014

Location: Underground Collaborative

Time: 7:30 pm



David's Redhaired Death tells a story of love, life altering decisions and death. We can all relate to the story regardless of who we love or have loved in our lives. Jean and Marilyn meet through their mutual friend and quickly fall in love. The turbulent affair is confusing and complicated but their connection is undeniable. They become mirrors of each other, reflecting self-love, sisterly love, and romantic love, as their worlds transform around them into a redhead world of their own making.

At the moment of true connection, their relationship is put to the test when the phone rings. Jean's brother, David, is dead. The news comes crashing down on top of them. Now they are faced with a choice. How can this new love move forward through death? Will tragedy redefine the beauty of the moments they have shared? Or will they choose to move beyond death and embrace the present moment? Their story offers us something of ourselves, and challenges us to examine our own lives for the traumas and emotions to which we cling that prevent us from finding our own happiness.

Time: 7:30 pm



We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel - son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as American art struggled to find its own voice separate from the classical European style that dominated the art world, an authentically American artistic expression was identified in the work of folk and self-taught artists.

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Date: Thu-Apr-24-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 10:00 am



Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike. Josh’s expressive images capture his friend’s reactions to the situation or to what is being seen. The prospect of missing that one moment, both from the perspective of experiencing it and the possibilities of catching it on film, lures Josh back to the road.

More than thirty original photographs by Josh Kurpius will be on display. Living Lost runs from January 17, 2014 through May 18, 2014.

In Wisconsin, despite many different government programs, countless people were unable to find work.
The Milwaukee Handicraft Project (MHP) employed thousands of women, teaching them to make wooden
and cloth toys, furniture, books, and more. It became a national model, boosting morale and giving its workers skills that they never knew they had.

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Living Lost Photographs by Josh Kurpius

Date: Fri-Apr-25-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 10:00 am



Rider and photographer Josh Kurpius’ work reveals the many contradictions embedded within his experiences on the road with friends; quiet reflections among the noise of vintage choppers, broken-down standstills after rolling with the throttle wide open for miles, camaraderie while surrounded by the solitude and emptiness of the endless horizon. A sense of timelessness runs throughout the photographs. References in the images look just as plausibly 1970s as they do modern, from the riders and their bikes to the landscape.

Taken during a series of road trips, Josh’s photos not only expose the beauty of America, but the beauty that can be captured in off-moments-those that he regularly finds himself wrapped up in. Often, the moment reveals itself in the most serendipitous way. The machines Josh and his friends ride can only go so far without refueling or needing a repair. While riding across the country, they find themselves stopping in places one might barely notice if they were in a car, or even on a new bike. Josh’s expressive images capture his friend’s reactions to the situation or to what is being seen. The prospect of missing that one moment, both from the perspective of experiencing it and the possibilities of catching it on film, lures Josh back to the road.

More than thirty original photographs by Josh Kurpius will be on display. Living Lost runs from January 17, 2014 through May 18, 2014.

INOVA presents the work of two emerging artists in their first major solo exhibitions. Lisa Selby pairs sculpted but unfired clay objects with found materials as she investigates the rituals and forms of domestic life. As the raw clay dries, the sculptures become meditations on time and transformation. Benjamin DeMott utilizes thin lines of extruded porcelain to build delicate, linear constructions that reflect the peculiarities of light and architecture in the exhibition space. DeMott will engage the details of INOVA gallery's architecture with this new body of work. Presented in conjunction with the 2014 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference held in Milwaukee March 19-22.

We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel - son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman's creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel - the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War ll, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.

Cinderella: The First 30,000 Years

Date: Fri-Apr-25-2014

Location: Inova/Kenilworth Square East

Time: 7:30 pm



A devised work written by Robin Mello and cast, Director: Robin Mello

Her story has been told since Paleolithic times. Writers love her too. Starting with Strabo [2,800 years ago] and Hazar Afsan [1st Century CE] to Perrault [1600s] and Disney, her classic saga continues. Our Cinderella asks you to decide an essential question: Is she a heroine or a passive victim? We explore ‘her’ story, following it through time and across cultures in this original dynamic production that uses improvisation and creative story-theatre to explore a world-wide archetype.

Rocky Mountain High: A John Denver Tribute

Date: Fri-Apr-25-2014

Location: Marcus Center for the Performing Arts

Time: 8:00 pm



The legendary John Denver evokes memories of an era in music, which was both inspiring and influential. He recorded nearly 300 songs, 200 of which he composed, which led to 12 gold and 4 platinum albums; he was also awarded an Emmy and two Grammy's. He was a brilliant song writer and a truly gifted performer. Ted Vigil, a man who, according to long-time Denver guitar accompanist Steve Weisberg, closely resembles John both physically and musically, is carrying on the tradition honoring this colossal music icon. Steve now accompanies Ted and is happy to once again be bringing the great compositions and hits of John Denver to audiences via a quality interpreter of Denver’s music.

Ted is not an impersonator, but rather sings a tribute to this great man. People miss John Denver; Ted Vigil is doing his best to pay homage. His gift for the music and polished and energetic performing style presents a warm and delightful evening through some of the world’s most popular music.

Originally Produced and Directed on Broadway by Harold Prince

Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick

April 11-27, 2014

Note: No performance Sunday April 20 (Easter Sunday)

Added 2:00 matinee Saturday April 19

The clashing sounds and pulsing rhythms of New York City underscore this landmark "concept" show, considered by many to have inaugurated the modern era of musical theatre. Company follows our anti-hero bachelor Robert as he makes his way through a series of encounters with April (the stewardess), Kathy (the girl who's going to marry someone else), Marta (the "peculiar" one), as well as with his married friends.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. In vignette after hilarious vignette, we are introduced to "those good and crazy people," his married friends, as Robert weighs the pros and cons of married life. In the end, he realizes being alone is "alone, not alive."


Theatre Unchained is located 2 minutes from downtown, one block off the National Ave. exit on I 94/43. 1024 S 5th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53204.

David's RedHaired Death

Date: Fri-Apr-25-2014

Location: Underground Collaborative

Time: 7:30 pm



David's Redhaired Death tells a story of love, life altering decisions and death. We can all relate to the story regardless of who we love or have loved in our lives. Jean and Marilyn meet through their mutual friend and quickly fall in love. The turbulent affair is confusing and complicated but their connection is undeniable. They become mirrors of each other, reflecting self-love, sisterly love, and romantic love, as their worlds transform around them into a redhead world of their own making.

At the moment of true connection, their relationship is put to the test when the phone rings. Jean's brother, David, is dead. The news comes crashing down on top of them. Now they are faced with a choice. How can this new love move forward through death? Will tragedy redefine the beauty of the moments they have shared? Or will they choose to move beyond death and embrace the present moment? Their story offers us something of ourselves, and challenges us to examine our own lives for the traumas and emotions to which we cling that prevent us from finding our own happiness.

Poppy and Jesse made a pact some years back, before retirement, before ill health. But conditions have changed and the full weight of their agreement is now upon them. If one dies, will the other willingly follow? Will husband and wife leave their lives behind while they still have the choice? With humor, imagination and tenderness, playwright Murray ingeniously weaves together three versions of this story. Three possibilities of living, of loving, of leaving - one powerful play about the preciousness and fragility of life.

Late April in Wisconsin is when we switch from winter coats to spring jackets. Many animals shed their natural winter coats in spring, such as Bactrian camels, Dall sheep, and moose. Comparing animal coats is the theme this year at Zootastic, a Zoological Society family fundraising event filled with animals, food, and fun. Sunset is at 7:46 p.m. So there's plenty of light for guests to walk to the giraffe exhibit and compare Rahna's light-colored coat to Marlee's much darker spotted coat. Or visit the big cats and compare snow leopard spots to jaguar spots. Get insider facts from Zoo staff and volunteers. Kids can create animal-themed crafts. Everyone can indulge in cheesy Palermo's® Pizza and an ice cream sundae from the make-your-own sundae bar. Dance past dusk to a kid-friendly DJ. Commemorate the night with a collectible family photo. All guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

David's RedHaired Death

Date: Sat-Apr-26-2014

Location: Underground Collaborative

Time: 7:30 pm



David's Redhaired Death tells a story of love, life altering decisions and death. We can all relate to the story regardless of who we love or have loved in our lives. Jean and Marilyn meet through their mutual friend and quickly fall in love. The turbulent affair is confusing and complicated but their connection is undeniable. They become mirrors of each other, reflecting self-love, sisterly love, and romantic love, as their worlds transform around them into a redhead world of their own making.

At the moment of true connection, their relationship is put to the test when the phone rings. Jean's brother, David, is dead. The news comes crashing down on top of them. Now they are faced with a choice. How can this new love move forward through death? Will tragedy redefine the beauty of the moments they have shared? Or will they choose to move beyond death and embrace the present moment? Their story offers us something of ourselves, and challenges us to examine our own lives for the traumas and emotions to which we cling that prevent us from finding our own happiness.
