The Doyle & Debbie Show

Side-splitting and rollicking – the perfect blend of Comedy and Country Music. Called “hilarious, brilliant, and drop-dead funny” by the Chicago Tribune, The Doyle & Debbie Show finds a washed-up country star and his newest singing partner dusting off their microphones and resurrecting a familiar signature sound. Singing 16 original hits, including “Stock Car Love” and “Blue Stretch Pants,” this hilarious send-up of country music duos will have you doubled-over with laughter and roaring for an encore.

Sept. 23, 2014 - Nov. 2, 2014
The Color Purple

A magnificent Grammy-nominated musical saga. Following the success of last year’s Ragtime, Mark Clements and his creative team reunite to bring you the hit musical based on Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. This glorious musical saga, spanning four decades, tells the unforgettable story of a woman who finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her own unique voice in the world. With a joyous Grammy-nominated score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, and blues, The Color Purple captures the hearts of young and old, and reminds us that “it only takes a grain of love to make a mighty tree.”

after all the terrible things I do

World Premiere Event! The heart-wrenching and deeply personal look at shared pasts and second chances. A poignant, new American drama finds Daniel, a writer, fresh out of college, returning to his Midwestern hometown to regain his sense of self. He takes a job at a local bookstore owned by Linda, an émigré from the Philippines, and soon after, they realize their connection is much deeper than a shared love of literature. Together they will have to face the trauma of their pasts to create second chances for themselves—but can they find forgiveness?

Nov. 7, 2014 - Jan. 11, 2015
Liberace!

Back By Popular Demand! The infamous flash, fame, and flamboyance you know and love so well! Born less than 10 miles from where Milwaukee Rep now stands, Liberace lived a life of flamboyance, flash, and lavish costumes. In this funny and touching tribute, the virtuoso musician gets one last chance to glitter and shine as he tickles the ivories through his favorite songs, including “I’ll Be Seeing You,” “Chopsticks,” and “The Boogie Woogie.” Milwaukee favorite Jack Forbes Wilson will reprise his iconic performance as the man who defined four decades of music and pop culture.

Nov. 18, 2014 - Dec. 21, 2014
Harvey

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Comedy. Classic hijinks and droll banter – an unbeatable holiday treat! Elwood P. Dowd has a friend in Harvey—a six-foot-tall rabbit “pooka,” visible only to him. Elwood’s behavior relating to his invisible friend is a constant source of frustration for his long-suffering family. When his social-climbing sister attempts to have him committed to an asylum, she learns she’d rather have Elwood just as he is—kind, caring, genial, at peace with the world and his place in it—than turn him into something he’s not. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and made famous by Jimmy Stewart’s performance in the iconic 1950 film, Harvey is the perfect comedy for the holiday season!
