St. Valentine was a priest who was beheaded for performing marriages in 3rd century Rome. Evidently Rome didn’t want young people marrying. Nearly 2 millennia later, some people are still having difficulty getting married under the law. That’s progress. 

This month, Chad Piechocki explores “a miracle, wedding and a beheading” as he explores the life of St. Valentine in what’s being referred to as a collage of love poetry, cut-and-paste storytelling and half-baked philosophical tangents. The piece is written and performed by Piechocki with special guests Cree Myles and D’Amato.

The show takes place Aug. 27 at 12:00 p.m. at the Todd Wehr Theatre as a part of Milwaukee Fringe Festival. For more information, visit the event’s Facebook page. 


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan.
