A Cabaret Seated and Candlelit Show with Rita Wilson
Although Rita Wilson is well-known as an actress (It’s Complicated, Sleepless in Seattle, recurring roles on CBS’: The Good Wife, HBO’s Golden Globe winning series: Girls, recently starring in Larry David’s sold out Broadway hit: Fish In The Dark) as well as a film producer (discovered My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Mamma Mia!), few may be aware that her early show biz ambitions were actually musical. Born and raised in the Hollywood Hills (nearly above the Hollywood Bowl), Wilson harbored dreams of becoming a singer in the ‘60s and ‘70s after falling in love with The Beatles, The Mamas & the Papas, Janis Joplin, and The Supremes, among others. She even took a part-time job as a ticket-taker at what was then the Universal Amphitheatre as a way to see such popular acts of the day as Linda Ronstadt, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, James Taylor, and The Eagles.
Journal Sentinel Talks: The Milwaukee Bucks Arena
The proposed Milwaukee Bucks arena and related development have been both controversial and more anticipated than any downtown project since the Milwaukee Art Museum. Will it be a great building? Will it transform our downtown? Join the Bucks leadership, the lead architects on the project, expert critics and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporters for a FREE, lively discussion that will deliver the latest information on the plans. The dialogue will seek answers to critical questions about the design of the structure, related public spaces and the viability of future development. The event is open to all and will include a cash bar, entertainment by TrueSkool and multi-media presentations by the Journal Sentinel. The discussion will be the first in a series of "Journal Sentinel Talks" that aim to deliver - and make - news in a live, face-to-face format.
Andy Mineo's Uncomfortable Tour
Whether he’s on stage bringing an audience to its feet with his riveting performance or off stage fielding interview questions with a potent combination of intellect and wit, it’s obvious Andy Mineo is a born communicator and hip hop music is his instrument for reaching the masses. “It is absolutely undeniable that hip hop is becoming the universal language,” Mineo says expressing an unbridled enthusiasm for his artistic vehicle. “It’s so influential because you are able to say so much in a short period of time. The essence of hip hop is the boldness of it so you’re able to be exactly who you are. You are able to say exactly what you want. You represent exactly what is deepest and dearest to you and people respond to that. They respond to that realness.”
