Milwaukee Opera Theatre presents:

Antiology

Music by John Glover, Words by Kelley Rourke
Inspired by the novel Eat the Document by Dana Spiotta

Featuring Andrew Wilkowske and Jack Forbes Wilson

 

“The point isn’t to win,” according to Nash, a key character in Dana Spiotta’s award-winning Eat the Document. A radical remnant of the 70s who now presides over an anarchist bookstore, Nash draws the disaffected youth of the 1990s into a shifting series of “collectives.”  In this musical response to Spiotta’s novel, the team behind “Guns N; Rosenkavalier” and “Lucy” explores the two eras – their language, technology, music and activism.  ​With special guest Dana Spiotta.

Dates:
Wednesday, October 10 at 8:00 PM
Thursday, October 11, at 8:00 PM

MILWAUKEE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP PRESENTS:

 

JAKE REVOLVER, VCR REPAIRMAN

 

 

Written by Matthew Konkel

Directed by Tom Marks

 

WHAT

Milwaukee Entertainment Group (MEG) and producer Tom Carr launch their 2018-19 theater season with the comedy-radio-noir sequel and world premiere production of Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman by Milwaukee playwright Matthew Konkel. This live stage production is directed by MEG’s artistic director Tom Marks and features an ensemble of Milwaukee area actors. Running September 7th – 22nd, 2018 7:30, Sunday September 16th matinee 2:00pm at the historic Brumder Mansion, 3046 W. Wisconsin Ave. Special Preview Performance on Thursday, September 6th 7:30pm. http://milwaukeeentertainmentgroup.com/jake-revolver-vcr-repairman

Tickets are available for purchase online at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3586109

ABOUT THE SHOW

He’s a voice for the voiceless, an eye for the sightless and a nose for the nostrilless. Some have called him a villain, some have called him a hero, some have called him “four eyes” and “fatty fat fatboy” but he always got over it. No matter what you call him though, his name and title remains the same: Giving orders and fixing recorders it’s Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman!

It’s the sequel you didn’t know you wanted! In the continuing adventures of this radio-noir, private detective parody, Jake Revolver has left his investigative roots to open a successful, albeit obsolete, video repair business and is charged with finding the ominous and infamous Berlese VCR.

Employing the same silly noir-parody tone and live radio show format as the original, Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman is more amusing and more “radioing” than the first! It’s a seriously funny foray into the dark and hysterical world of a once secret agent turned small electronics mechanic. Don’t miss Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman! In the tradition of Firesign Theater, Jake Revolver combines slapstick, screwball humor, and commercial spoofs for a laugh-a-minute theatrical comedy. Milwaukee Entertainment Group and the Brumder Mansion are proud to present Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman

CAST

Jake Revolver, VCR Repairman stars as an ensemble of seasoned Milwaukee area actors including: Phil Stepanski as Jake Revolver (reprising his character portrayal from the prequel Jake Revolver, Freelance Secret Agent), Marcus Beyer as Sage, Jim Donaldson as RB Hefft, Amy Geyser as Dearly Leading, Laura Holterman as Ginger, Jason Nykiel as Fredrick Nobel, Hayley San Fillippo as Top Load, and Pam Scheferman as Detective Copper.
