108 E. Wells St.
Milwaukee, WI 53202
World Premiere Event! Brilliantly intellectual and darkly funny — not to be missed. From Emmy Award-winning writer Rick Cleveland (Six Feet Under, The West Wing, and House of Cards), comes a funny and incisive new drama about the meeting of America’s most exclusive club – the ex-presidents. Obliged to gather together on the day of Richard Nixon’s funeral, four “exes” and one “current” vent frustrations, revisit old grievances, and reveal the toll that it takes on any person foolish enough to seek the highest office in the land.
Low Down Dirty Blues
Sassy, sensual, and sultry – we dare you not to sing along! The night club may be closed, but the party is just heating up! Join a group of musician/singers as they gather after-hours to swap stories and share their fervor for music. Four multi-talented performers pour their passion, soul, and love into the greatest hits of Muddy Waters, Ma Rainey, Sophie Tucker, Howlin’ Wolf, Pearl Bailey, and many more. Twenty-two smokin’ songs, non-stop blues riffs, titillating double-entendres, and hot rhythms keep the theater sultry and steamy from the first note to the last.
