Coming soon: "The Clockmaker"
One of the best casts you could find in Milwaukee will take the stage this Friday as Next Act Theatre opens its production of "The Clockmaker," a quirky and offbeat play written by Canadian Stephen Massicotte.
The cast features Milwaukee veteran Drew Brhel as Herr Mann, Richard Halverson making a long-awaited return to Next Act as Monsieur Pierre, Dan Katula who will make his Next Act debut as Adolphus and the always spectacular Molly Rhode as Frieda.
Up in cosmic heaven, clockmaker Heinrich Mann and his friend Frieda are interrogated by a skeptical, mysterious Monsieur Pierre. Meanwhile, back on earth, we catch up on the events that have brought them together. Time stands still in this gentle, surprising tale of love, heroism and eternity.
"Massicotte's offering is clever, entertaining and ultimately, a satisfying depiction of the unknowable," says David Cecsarini, Next Act's Producing Artistic Director.
Mary MacDonald Kerr directs the production, which runs from Feb. 1 to 24. Ticket information is available at nextact.org.
