A Quiet Week With Three Guys Before Things Get Busy
This Week: A Bluesman, A Rock Star and Sherlock Holmes
Next Week: 9 shows open.
Itâ€™s 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 openingâ€”Milwaukee Repâ€™sÂ I Just Stopped By To See The Man and Wisconsin Hybrid Theatreâ€™s 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. Iâ€™ll 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 Repâ€™s Quadracci for The Cherry OrchardÂ to the Alchemist for The Temples of NadirÂ to the Broadway Theatre Center for Milwaukee Chamberâ€™s Brooklyn Boy to Off The Wall for a production of Oscar Wilde's Salome to The Marian Center for Soulsticeâ€™sÂ Lend Me A Tenor . . . Five Shows. Six days.
What Iâ€™ll be missing:
--the Milwaukee debut of the touring musical comedy Altar Boyz,
--Social Security at the Sunset Playhouse.
(The Skylight is also opening Herman The Horse--a childrenâ€™s show.)Â
As much as I try to cover everything in some way. Iâ€™ll probably miss a few things . . . sounds like a bewildering week . . .
