Renaissance creates absolute magic with Civil War-based "Amelia"

Oct. 19, 2014 4:36 p.m.

But when that story gets mixed with history and put into the hands of a small coterie of very creative people, the story creates the kind of theatrical magic that comes only on occasion. That's what happened when "Amelia" opened Saturday night.

Spectacular acting lights up MCT's "The Good Father"

Sept. 21, 2014 3:16 p.m.

"The Good Father," which opened over the weekend at the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre and runs through Oct. 12, was the first play by Irish playwright Christian O'Reilly, and it has rarely been produced in this country.

Skylight's "Cinderella" joyously turns a Disney classic on its ear

Sept. 20, 2014 12:16 p.m.

In its recent past, the Skylight has moved almost exclusively into the world of musical theater, consistently producing stellar productions of musicals usually familiar to an audience.
