                                                                        Theater RED brings Angela Iannone’s This Prison Where I Live to Milwaukee

A play in the Edwin Booth cycle, and companion piece to acclaimed The Seeds of Banquo

 

MILWAUKEE, August 1, 2018 – Continuing their 2018 season, Theater RED revisits the 19th century’s most cherished Shakespearean actor, Edwin Booth, for another Milwaukee premiere. Written and directed by Angela Iannone, and featuring Theater RED alumni and Chicago-based actor and playwright Jared McDaris, “This Prison Where I Live” marks the second collaboration between Theater RED and Iannone as a playwright and director, after 2015’s critically acclaimed The Seeds of Banquo.

 

This Prison Where I Live recalls Edwin Booth, the first superstar celebrity in the world of theater, as he rehearses his production of Shakespeare’s Richard the Second. As he readies himself to play, the ghosts of his past, including that of his notorious brother, interrupt his rehearsals with their own requests and mock the crown of America’s “Prince of Players.”

 

The run of This Prison Where I Live will last three weeks, with performances at 7:30pm on August 24th, 25th, 29th, 30th, and 31st and September 6th, 7th and 8th and matinee performances at 2:00pm on August 26th and September 9th. All performances will take place at the Tenth Street Theatre (home to In Tandem Theatre), located at 628 N 10th St, Milwaukee, WI 53233. The lobby offers refreshments during intermission, and before and after the show. Running time is around two hours, including a fifteen minute intermission. Tickets cost $18 and will be available starting August 3rd at www.theaterred.com

 

About Theater RED: Founded in 2013 by local actors Christopher Elst and Marcee Doherty-Elst, Theater RED is a registered LLC that produces theatre in southeastern Wisconsin. Each production addresses three founding tenets: substantial roles for women, growth in craft for artists, and new works by promising playwrights. www.theaterred.com

VOICES FOUND REPERTORY PRESENTS THEATRE GAMES AND TWELFTH NIGHT

Season 1 finishes with a world-premiere thriller and Shakespeare’s classic comedy

 

Theatre Games: May 3-7, 2017 | Twelfth Night: May 10-14, 2017

 

MILWAUKEE, WI – Voices Found Repertory concludes its inaugural season with “twin” productions at the Arcade Theatre: the world premiere of Theatre Games, a thriller with a Shakespearean flair, and the Bard’s beloved gender-bending comedy, Twelfth Night. Together, these shows form an oddly complementary pair that examines gender, family, secrecy, deception, and relationships.

 

Theatre Games is a fast-paced psychodrama by emerging Midwestern playwright Pharyne Stephney that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. When five Shakespeare characters find themselves stranded in an abandoned theatre with a script, a princess, and a guy named Bill, they must piece together the convoluted machinations of their boss before it’s too late. But when everyone’s script is a secret, who’s to say what’s written and what’s improvised? Reminiscent of Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, this never-before-seen play directed by Jake Russell Thompson takes us into an unraveling world of crime, secrets, and psychopathy.

 

Twelfth Night counteracts the darkness of Theatre Games with the Bard’s signature heart and wit in one of his most pro-LGBTQ+ works. A diverse ensemble presents this comedy of music, poetry, and unrequited love – the basis for the hit film She’s the Man – with all the color and energy of a 1980s music video. Directed by Nick Hurtgen and Shanna Theiste, Shakespeare’s hilarious adventure into love, gender, and identity in Illyria is the breath of fresh air we need this spring. Our May 12 show is a late-nite “unrated” version that begins at 9pm. Come for the laughs, stay for the love.

 

Patrons can purchase “twin ticket” sets for both shows at a discounted price.

THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH Artist Matinee – Marquette Theatre
Marquette Theatre announces special artist rate tickets for a matinee of THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH. Artist tickets will be sold for $9 and are available for the show at 11:00 am on Friday, February 24. Tickets can be purchased at the door a half-hour before curtain or by calling (414) 288-7505. The show’s run will continue from Wednesday, February 22 to Sunday, Wednesday 26.
Written by Thornton Wilder and directed by Jamie Cheatham, THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH is a comedy that mixes satire, burlesque and farce. The Marquette production promises to be like nothing you’ve seen before on the Helfaer stage. Follow Wilder’s “first family,” the Antrobus family, from the ice age straight up to present day. This tenacious clan lives through the invention of the wheel, the Great Flood, and all of the frustration and liberation of building a better world, as they struggle to survive by the skin of their teeth.
All Marquette Theatre performances take place at the Helfaer Theatre on Marquette University’s campus, located at 525 N. 13th St. For tickets to other performances, or for more information, visit marquette.edu/theatre and go.mu.edu/tickets.”
