Musical Comedy by Carole Caplan Lonner

As introduced on NBC's 'Today Show', this musical comedy salutes those valiantly struggling with divorce on their hands, gravity on their bodies, grandchildren on their self-images and the dating scene on their egos. The risks and uncertainties of being alive come alive through song and scene. Aging gracefully is the final frontier! A humorous and heartfelt look at the day-to-day concerns of the over-fifty 'empty-nester' crowd including everything from retirement and AARP, dating to divorce, plastic surgery and grandparenting.

MENU: Open Faced Turkey Sandwich, Dirty Mashed Potatoes with gravy, Steamed Vegetable Blend, Memories Famous Fluff, Dinner Salad with French dressing, Warm Dinner Rolls, Strawberry shortcake

2012, BIELER PERE ET FILS, COTEAUX D’AIX EN PROVENCE, ROSE
Charles Bieler, prolific in the Rosé world, most known for being apart of the Three Thieves, and driving around in the 90’s promoting Rosé in a Pink Cadillac. Lately, if you want to catch this innovator of wine you may catch a glimpse if you head to his father’s operation in Provence or Southern Rhone, sporting a pink tux of all things…

2013, CHÂTEAU PEYRASSOL, CÔTES DE PROVENCE, ROSE
Francoise Rigord or Dame de Peyrassol, has help shape the identity of the Camanderie, since its Medieval origins of the Knights of Templar. Currently, she leaves it in the capable hands of winemaker Philippe Austruy who invests his time in this large venture to approach a new legend for this Château.

N.V. BOLLINGER SPECIAL CUVEÉ BRUT
Bollinger has a sophisticated excellence in the village of Aÿ, almost as if this wine was born in those narrow streets and alleys after a wealthy noble inherited the land and created the House with unlikely partners in 1829. Visiting this Champagne House, hoping to indulge in bottled legacy, from then catapulting to success on the silver screen. Walking through the doors of the stone gate makes one utter “Bollinger? If it is a ‘69, you were expecting me.” – James Bond, Moonraker, 1979

N.V., NICOLAS FEUILLATTE CHAMPAGNE BRUT
Nicolas Feuillatte is a man, and now a brand that has faced competition from centuries-old Champagne Houses, in just 35 years, the brand has climbed to meteoric success due to his tenacity and precision. This House is an alliance of 82 cooperatives and 4,500 winegrowers, looking over this region is like staring at a vast rolling sea of green, and technically a small ocean of champagne.

2009, CHÂTEAU COUTET GRAND CRU, ST. EMILION, BORDEAUX
Xavier David Beaulieu is the owner of the estate, one wouldn’t guess that by the unassuming picturesque hills and wild tulips that it is the site of an odyssey that echoes back to ancient romans. Beaulieu is a gracious host and welcomes all to his tasting room, and if you are lucky you get to see his centuries old barrel room, with bottles stored before the United States was a twinkle in Jefferson’s eye.

2011, CHÂTEAU L’ECUYER, POMEROL, BORDEAUX
If one were to look out over this small estate they could see the rooftops of the villages in Bordeaux on this Pomerol plateau. Emeric Petit is the drive behind this newer project, creating wine unlike anything else in the world, but many know him and his ancestral wine family


• • JULY 23rd • •

2009, DOMAINE DU JUGARET, ST. JULIEN, BORDEAUX
The estate is small, with just 18 rows of vines, cobwebbed lamps and a musty stone cellar, but the wine is so very grand. Jean-Françios Fillastre has kept it in the family since 1654. Some recall the 1945 vintage the best wine-drinking of their lives. Alas, all things come to an end as it is the plight of smaller estates getting forced out by the larger more flashy Bordeaux wines.

2009, CHÂTEAU LA PEYRE, ST. ESTEPHE, BORDEAUX
René Rabiller, took over his family winery rather than see it sold to a big name like Rothschild. He like many follows old traditions with multiple skill sets. René is one of 44 that can now, since 2006, legally call himself, his wine, ‘a vintage craftsman’ or Cru Artisan.


• • JULY 30th • •

2011, DANIEL CHOTARD, SANCERRE
As you walk up this small hill in Sancerre you might hear the accordion in the background. That’s Daniel, another success in a long line of family vignerons in Reigny since 1789. The jazz music that he is so passionate for translates into his wine creating harmonies and crescendos that need to be tasted.

2011, LUCIEN CROCHET, SANCERRE
In the small village of Bué on a small rise above the church in the center of the village are a combination of estates from his father and father-in-law in conjunction, the latter being the first to sell Sancerre wine to Paris. This “Pope” of Sancerre has since handed over reigns to his son Gilles, who has equal respect for the land, vines, and those heavenly pearls of gold that glow in summer sun.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Wed-Jul-23-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Thu-Jul-24-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

Listening to Mitchell

Date: Thu-Jul-24-2014

Time: 3:00 pm

 

Listening to Mitchell

Date: Thu-Jul-24-2014

Time: 3:00 pm



There is no other place in Milwaukee like Mitchell Street. In the most densely populated area of the city, the street has remained one of Milwaukee’s most animated and diverse corridors. From its commercial heyday in the 1950s to its eclectic present, this mainstreet has been home to countless stories of grand commercial success and decline as successive waves of immigrants made their way on the street.

Beginning in fall of 2012, Sonja Thomsen and Adam Carr have been exploring the many layers of Mitchell Street. Together they created Listening to Mitchell, an installation of image and sound that transforms over fifty interviews into a site-specific experience of place and its collective memory. With the installation taking shape amongst the seven block corridor, from the Modjeska to St. Stan’s, the artists are inviting the public to join them in a multifaceted conversation with Mitchell Street.

See & hear Listening to Mitchell on the street

Listening to Mitchell’s images can be found throughout the street, like a treasure hunt, from building-sides to storefront windows to checkout counters. These bright, poppy images flirt with the language of advertising, referencing the street’s history of commerce. Rather than selling products, however, the project’s artworks point towards the street’s latent web of experience using objects as an entry point.

While walking the street, visitors will be prompted through the artworks to access a cell phone tour created by the artists. Dial 414-921-2622, followed by 1-20#, to hear audio pieces constructed around 20 Mitchell Street themes that emerged through the interview process. These include Whose street is this anyways? (8#), Go out and play (12#), In our father’s shadow (16#), Nothing matters when we are dancing(20#), and more. Callers can dial 0# to leave their own Mitchell Street reflections.

An incomplete guide

The artists worked closely with designer Nate Pyper to create Listening to Mitchell: An incomplete guide, a printed publication pulling together the many points of access created by Listening to Mitchell. A collage of artwork, tips from the artists, and stories gathered during the interview process, the guide gives visitors a series of suggestions to experience the street and installation. The guide can be picked up at businesses on Mitchell Street, as well as locations throughout the city, such as the Old South Side Settlement Museum, Forest Home Library, United Community Center’s Latino Arts Inc, Walker’s Point Center for the Arts, UW-Milwaukee’s INOVA Gallery, the Pitch Project, Sharon Lynne Wilson Center, and more.

Events happening

Throughout the run of the installation, the artists are offering a variety of programming and events to engage community members with Listening to Mitchell. In addition to a series of walking tours, including an in-depth tour for Historic Milwaukee Inc.’s Doors Open Milwaukee, the artists will produce impromptu events, taking cues from memories collected during the interview process. These include a parking lot kickball game, portraits on the street, dance/music performances, unrehearsed storytelling circles, and more. A listing of events can be found at: http://listeningtomitchell.wordpress.com/event-schedule/

Leo Saul Berk-"The Uncertainty of Enclosure"

Location: Inova/Kenilworth Square East

The Uncertainty of Enclosure explores the impact of an architecturally iconic residence- Bruce Goff's Ford House In Aurora, Illinois- on the art of Leo Saul Berk.

INOVA will tour this exhibition nationally. Support for this exhibition is provided in part by grants from the Mary L Nohl Fund of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.

The Wayans Brothers at Potawatomi

Location: Potawatomi Expo Center

Time: 8:00 pm



Don’t miss the hilarious comedy from The Wayans Brothers, performing together on stage for the first time ever, at the Expo Center inside Potawatomi Bingo Casino in downtown Milwaukee.

In 1990, the world of comedy welcomed an irreverent sketch comedy that changed the playing field. In Living Color debuted to critical acclaim and adoration by millions of American fans varied in ethnicity. Leading the charge was trailblazing creator, writer, director, producer and actor, Keenen Ivory Wayans.

The second of ten children, Keenen was the first sibling to achieve national prominence after starring in bit roles in Hollywood and ultimately writing and directing films. His success culminated when he created, launched and hosted the landmark 1990s black-oriented comedy satire, In Living Color— igniting and advancing the careers of his younger siblings and extended family.

Damon Wayans, just a few years younger than Keenen, followed in his brother’s footsteps and pursued comedy. Damon started his career in the early ’80s as a stand-up comedian and landed a role as a featured player on Saturday Night Live. By the time In Living Color aired, Damon was already a staple in the comedy world, fueling the popularity of the sketch comedy.

Over a decade apart in age from Damon, brothers Shawn and Marlon, also ever-present on In Living Color, later found success in comedy as they continue to write and star in irreverent comedic spoofs and satires that are trademarks of their family business.

Now, almost 15 years after the first episode of In Living Color aired, these four Wayans brothers unite for a night of comedy. Performing, talking and just being the funny brothers they are, the family business is put on display for all to see, and to laugh at!

 TIMELINE, featuring RedLine Milwaukee’s emerging resident artists, is a presentation of work from the past year of their residency, and explores many disciplines that inform contemporary art and media. RedLine Milwaukee’s innovative residency program and the annual TIMELINE exhibition are at once a sound platform from which to examine the critical issues facing contemporary artists and an exciting venue in which to experiment with the creative process. Included in this year’s exhibition are Melanie Ariens, Aneesha Baldeosingh, Nina Ghanbarzadeh, Carly Huibregtse, Stefani Quam, Jeff Redmon, Natalie Schmitting, Skully Skyrocket, Lindsey Weigel, and Nicki Werner.

Existentialism, the inaugural exhibition for RedLine Milwaukee’s teen residency program, presents work by six young artists who are devoted to the prospect of living authentically through self- awareness, inquiry, and autonomy. Pressure printing, monotyping, screenprinting, painting, and mixed media are employed to relate “thinking about thinking.” Mindfulness and experiments in technique inform the majority of the work. The teen residents are Jesus Hilario, Ellis Kalkoske, Aaron Musickant, Nadia Peppler, Lily Solheim, and Nia Wilson.

Listening to Mitchell

July

Date: Fri-Jul-25-2014

Time: 3:00 pm

 

Listening to Mitchell

Date: Fri-Jul-25-2014

Time: 3:00 pm



There is no other place in Milwaukee like Mitchell Street. In the most densely populated area of the city, the street has remained one of Milwaukee’s most animated and diverse corridors. From its commercial heyday in the 1950s to its eclectic present, this mainstreet has been home to countless stories of grand commercial success and decline as successive waves of immigrants made their way on the street.

Beginning in fall of 2012, Sonja Thomsen and Adam Carr have been exploring the many layers of Mitchell Street. Together they created Listening to Mitchell, an installation of image and sound that transforms over fifty interviews into a site-specific experience of place and its collective memory. With the installation taking shape amongst the seven block corridor, from the Modjeska to St. Stan’s, the artists are inviting the public to join them in a multifaceted conversation with Mitchell Street.

See & hear Listening to Mitchell on the street

Listening to Mitchell’s images can be found throughout the street, like a treasure hunt, from building-sides to storefront windows to checkout counters. These bright, poppy images flirt with the language of advertising, referencing the street’s history of commerce. Rather than selling products, however, the project’s artworks point towards the street’s latent web of experience using objects as an entry point.

While walking the street, visitors will be prompted through the artworks to access a cell phone tour created by the artists. Dial 414-921-2622, followed by 1-20#, to hear audio pieces constructed around 20 Mitchell Street themes that emerged through the interview process. These include Whose street is this anyways? (8#), Go out and play (12#), In our father’s shadow (16#), Nothing matters when we are dancing(20#), and more. Callers can dial 0# to leave their own Mitchell Street reflections.

An incomplete guide

The artists worked closely with designer Nate Pyper to create Listening to Mitchell: An incomplete guide, a printed publication pulling together the many points of access created by Listening to Mitchell. A collage of artwork, tips from the artists, and stories gathered during the interview process, the guide gives visitors a series of suggestions to experience the street and installation. The guide can be picked up at businesses on Mitchell Street, as well as locations throughout the city, such as the Old South Side Settlement Museum, Forest Home Library, United Community Center’s Latino Arts Inc, Walker’s Point Center for the Arts, UW-Milwaukee’s INOVA Gallery, the Pitch Project, Sharon Lynne Wilson Center, and more.

Events happening

Throughout the run of the installation, the artists are offering a variety of programming and events to engage community members with Listening to Mitchell. In addition to a series of walking tours, including an in-depth tour for Historic Milwaukee Inc.’s Doors Open Milwaukee, the artists will produce impromptu events, taking cues from memories collected during the interview process. These include a parking lot kickball game, portraits on the street, dance/music performances, unrehearsed storytelling circles, and more. A listing of events can be found at: http://listeningtomitchell.wordpress.com/event-schedule/

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Fri-Jul-25-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Sat-Jul-26-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

Listening to Mitchell

Date: Sun-Jul-27-2014

Time: 2:00 pm

 

Listening to Mitchell

Date: Sun-Jul-27-2014

Time: 2:00 pm



There is no other place in Milwaukee like Mitchell Street. In the most densely populated area of the city, the street has remained one of Milwaukee’s most animated and diverse corridors. From its commercial heyday in the 1950s to its eclectic present, this mainstreet has been home to countless stories of grand commercial success and decline as successive waves of immigrants made their way on the street.

Beginning in fall of 2012, Sonja Thomsen and Adam Carr have been exploring the many layers of Mitchell Street. Together they created Listening to Mitchell, an installation of image and sound that transforms over fifty interviews into a site-specific experience of place and its collective memory. With the installation taking shape amongst the seven block corridor, from the Modjeska to St. Stan’s, the artists are inviting the public to join them in a multifaceted conversation with Mitchell Street.

See & hear Listening to Mitchell on the street

Listening to Mitchell’s images can be found throughout the street, like a treasure hunt, from building-sides to storefront windows to checkout counters. These bright, poppy images flirt with the language of advertising, referencing the street’s history of commerce. Rather than selling products, however, the project’s artworks point towards the street’s latent web of experience using objects as an entry point.

While walking the street, visitors will be prompted through the artworks to access a cell phone tour created by the artists. Dial 414-921-2622, followed by 1-20#, to hear audio pieces constructed around 20 Mitchell Street themes that emerged through the interview process. These include Whose street is this anyways? (8#), Go out and play (12#), In our father’s shadow (16#), Nothing matters when we are dancing(20#), and more. Callers can dial 0# to leave their own Mitchell Street reflections.

An incomplete guide

The artists worked closely with designer Nate Pyper to create Listening to Mitchell: An incomplete guide, a printed publication pulling together the many points of access created by Listening to Mitchell. A collage of artwork, tips from the artists, and stories gathered during the interview process, the guide gives visitors a series of suggestions to experience the street and installation. The guide can be picked up at businesses on Mitchell Street, as well as locations throughout the city, such as the Old South Side Settlement Museum, Forest Home Library, United Community Center’s Latino Arts Inc, Walker’s Point Center for the Arts, UW-Milwaukee’s INOVA Gallery, the Pitch Project, Sharon Lynne Wilson Center, and more.

Events happening

Throughout the run of the installation, the artists are offering a variety of programming and events to engage community members with Listening to Mitchell. In addition to a series of walking tours, including an in-depth tour for Historic Milwaukee Inc.’s Doors Open Milwaukee, the artists will produce impromptu events, taking cues from memories collected during the interview process. These include a parking lot kickball game, portraits on the street, dance/music performances, unrehearsed storytelling circles, and more. A listing of events can be found at: http://listeningtomitchell.wordpress.com/event-schedule/

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Sun-Jul-27-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Mon-Jul-28-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.
