This Week: A Bluesman, A Rock Star and Sherlock Holmes

Next Week: 9 shows open.


It‚Äôs the regular season, which means that there are more than a dozen shows opening this month. This week marks the second in a row with only a couple of shows opening‚ÄĒMilwaukee Rep‚Äôs¬† I Just Stopped By To See The Man and Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre‚Äôs staged old-timey radio reading of Sherlock Holmes on Easter Sunday. With the month opening to such a scant number of shows, the remainder of the month is going to be very, very busy. Next week alone, there are no less than nine shows opening. Nine. I‚Äôll only be able to make it to five of them . . . that's five shows in six days.


A Quick Look Ahead:

I'll be going from the Rep’s Quadracci for The Cherry Orchard  to the Alchemist for The Temples of Nadir  to the Broadway Theatre Center for Milwaukee Chamber’s Brooklyn Boy to Off The Wall for a production of Oscar Wilde's Salome to The Marian Center for Soulstice’s  Lend Me A Tenor . . . Five Shows. Six days.


What I’ll be missing:

--the Milwaukee debut of the touring musical comedy Altar Boyz,

-- Zombies From Beyond‚ÄĒa sci-fi musical comedy at Cardinal Stritch


--Social Security at the Sunset Playhouse.

(The Skylight is also opening Herman The Horse--a children’s show.) 

As much as I try to cover everything in some way. I’ll probably miss a few things . . . sounds like a bewildering week . . .


Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
