Hi guys,

The Constuctivists are opening a super interesting play by Sam Shephard this weekend (what play by Sam Shephard isn’t interesting) The God of Hell. This cast is doing really great work and you should come see it. And here’s a thought, instead of waiting for the last weekend or missing it completely, why not come opening weekend and help get the word out when you relate your delightful theatrical experience to, oh I don’t know, everyone you know? Support local theatre!

P.S. The show is at The Underground Colaborative in the basement of The Grand Avenue Mall.  All shows are at 7:30 pm. And if you come tonight, I’ll let you buy me a beer.

The Constuctivists are opening Sam Shephard’s The God of Hell this weekend. Sam Shepard’s THE GOD OF HELL. Opening Friday, September 27 thru Saturday, October 12, 2019. Tickets at theconstructivists.org. #milwaukee #theatre #samshepard #thegodofhellmke #wisconsin #usa #gotmilk


 

    

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Theater RED teams with Kettle Moraine Players for Girard’s Nude

A 1950s-style musical comedy with an outrageous French accent!

 

MILWAUKEE, May 1, 2018 – For the opening of their 2019-2020 season, Theater RED presents another world premiere written by Kristin Bayer and Deanns Gibeau, two up-and-coming local playwrights. Director Christopher Elst compares the show to a modern take on “I Love Lucy” with the main character constantly embroiled in innocent miscommunications to hilarious effect. The show’s songs pay homage to musica americana of its time, from barbershop to doo-wop with many stops in between.

 

Girard’s Nude is set in 1953 in Waldenford, Pennsylvanis, USA, where girdles are tight and morals even tighter. Middle-aged Ethel Evans meets Girard, a famous French artist who wants her to pose for him. In the nude. Ethel agrees, but needs to avoid scandalization from her many nosy friends and neighbors, and particularly her husband. Ooh la la!

 

Performances of Girard’s Nude will take place September 6th-22nd at Kettle Moraine Playhouse, located at 204 Kettle Moraine Dr S in Slinger, WI. The theater seats 66 patrons and offers refreshments before the show and during intermission. Tickets are $20 and are available now at www.theater-red.com

                   The critically acclaimed drama, DOUBT, A PARABLE, by John Patrick Shanley will open the After Sunset Series,in the Marla Eichmann Studio Theater, at Sunset Playhouse, 700 Wall St, Elm Grove, WI. Performances of DOUBT will take place Thursday through Saturday, September 12-14, at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, September 15, at 2:00 pm. General admission tickets are $16.

(After Sunset is recommended for mature audiences only.)

DOUBT won both the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. It was also turned into an Academy Award-nominated film. The brilliant and powerful drama is set against the backdrop of a Catholic elementary school in the Bronx, as both the Catholic Church and the nation face the major social changes of the 1960s. A progressive young priest’s conduct comes under question when Sister Aloysius, the strict and conservative school principal, suspects the priest of improper relations with a male student. The actions and motivations of each character are scrutinized, and a battle of wills threatens irrevocable consequences for everyone involved.

Directed by Becky Spice, the production features Robin Christiansen as Father Flynn; Karen Maio as Sister Aloysius; Brittany Roux as the young teacher, Sister James; and LaKysha Burns as the mother of Donald Muller, the school’s first African American student.
