Urban spelunking: The Iron Block Building

Nov. 25, 2014 9:02 a.m.

This year, Dental Associates completed its restoration of the Iron Block Building -- actually a pair of connected buildings dating from 1860 and 1899 -- and the work put a gorgeous new luster on one of Downtown's most aged landmarks. As Milwaukee's only iron-facade building, it's a real Milwaukee gem. To look at the historic Iron Block Building on the corner of Water and Wisconsin now, you'd be hard-pressed to believe it almost didn't survive.

The Found Footage Festival celebrates 10 years of terrible videos

Nov. 24, 2014 6:06 a.m.

As the creators of the Found Footage Festival, Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett are no strangers to bad ideas. And they'd have it no other way. For the past decade, that's exactly what Prueher, Pickett and the Found Footage Festival have done: showing people the best of the worst cheap VHS tapes the world has to offer, videos that can often make the tape from "The Ring" seem like a blissful rom-com.

Skylight's "Wizard" takes a wonderfully imaginative trip to Oz

Nov. 23, 2014 10:06 a.m.

"The Wizard of Oz" on stage at the Skylight is a warm and wonderful journey into the Emerald City and beyond. The search for the wizard who can get Dorothy home and a heart, courage and brain for her three friends gets a creative treatment good for the holiday season.

The Rep's "Harvey" teaches a lesson in the meaning of friendship

Nov. 22, 2014 11:06 a.m.

A 70-year-old play about an imaginary six-foot rabbit delivers laughs, but it also is a lesson about how important friendship really is and how loyalty must withstand every single challenge. There is nothing quite like the friendship between Elwood P. Dowd and his best friend, Harvey the Pooka.
