A good portion of my job involves receiving and processing press releases from local theatre companies. A couple of days ago, I received an interesting one for Off The Wall’supcoming production of Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage.

A show that has been in the making for quite some time, Off The Wall’s staging of Brecht’s classic includes original music written by Jack Forbes Wilson. A consummate professional, Wilson was most recently seen in the role of Liberace in the Milwaukee Rep’s Stackner Cabaret.

A press release for the show that came in a couple of days back included an MP3 of Wilson’s May Mornings with lyrics by Dale Gutzman, who adapted the play for the stage at Off The Wall. An all-new composition, it appears to be a variation on the Fraternization Song from the original text. Here’s what it sounds like.

Off The Wall Theatre’sproduction of Mother Courage runs March 24th – April 3rd. For reservations, call 414-327-3552.


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?
