Matt Zembrowski For The Holidays

Sunset Playhouse’s Bing thing

In making out my personal schedule of shows for the coming month, I find local stages awash in holiday cheer. In and amidst shows that are returning from perevious seasons, there are a few shows that only sound like they’re returning from previous seasons. One such show is the Sunset Playhouse’s  Bing Crosby: Christmas On The Air. The name is so universal—I’m sure I’ve seen something like that in holidays past, haven’t I? . . . it’s an homage to old time radio in which an actor plays Bing Crosby.

Honestly, seeing it on the Sunset’s calendar didn’t really impress me much until I saw Matt Zembrowski listed as the guy playing Bing. For me, the name Matt Zembrowski is a bigger draw than Bing Crosby . . . I know I’m in the minority here, but Zembrowski is a great deal of fun onstage in a musical role. (I never really liked Guys & Dolls until I saw him in a production at Off The Wall a little while back . . . this guy is good . . .) I'm not a fan of Crosby, but I would probably enjoy this show because of the guy playing him. 

So I may not be able to turn around my schedule so that I can see this show, but trust me . . . if this palys out at all like I’m picturing it, this could be fun.

Sunset Playhouse’s production of Matt Zembroski in Bing Crosby: Christmas On The Air runs December 8th – 18th at the Sunset’s Studio Theatre. For ticket reservations, call 262-782-4430 or visit the Playhouse online. 


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?
