Theater Preview: "Walk in the Woods"
Milwaukee Chamber Theatre closes its 32nd season with a surprisingly comic drama set in the midst of the Cold War with Lee Blessing's "A Walk in the Woods," April 12 - 29.
Set in 1984 in a "pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva," we meet two arms negotiators, John Honeyman, an idealistic, but uptight American, and Andrey Botvinnik, a humorously cynical Russian. The play is loosely based on the famous "walk in the woods" taken by actual negotiators during the Cold War as a break from long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table.
Two talented Milwaukee actors make their Milwaukee Chamber Theatre debut in this production as Peter Reeves and Robert Spencer take on the roles of John Honeyman and Andrey Botvinnik. MCT Producing Artistic Director C. Michael Wright directs.
Performances are at the Cabot Theatre of the Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward. Tickets, $20 - $37, available at the Broadway Theatre Center Box Office, by phone at (414) 291-7800.
