The lovely, young talented Emilie Lozier will be playing Juliet. The equally lovely, equally young and every bit as talented Joey Flegel-Mishlove will be playing Romeo. It will be a comedy. It will be a parody of Shakespeare’s classic written by Milwaukee comedy staple Patrick Schmitz. This is going to be in August (21-23) at the Next Act Theatre. Before this can happen, however, money needs to be raised.

This May 31, Schmitz and company will be holding a fundraiser for the independent production at ComedySportz on 420 S. 1st St. The fundraiser opens its doors at 7 p.m. It will feature local improv, stand-up and sketch comedy acts as well as scene readings from the play, raffles and a chance to join everyone in an open improv jam.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
