Parking tickets are a nightmare of epic proportions
You won't believe this! Today's subject is parking in the City of Milwaukee. I've thought about this a lot over my life, wondering why I hate and fear the parking regulations and those parking checkers so much.

"Seminar" is cute but goes astray with misdirection
Almost anyone who has ever gone to school, especially at the college level, can relate to a story about the pompous "I'm too good to be doing this" professor who takes a macabre delight in whittling his students down to size. That's the essence of "Seminar," the Broadway hit by Theresa Rebeck that opened this week at The World's Stage Theatre Company.

Wall Street Journal drama critic calls APT one of the best in the country

APT's "Travesties" is a joyful and crazy ride through history
When a play starts with a half hour monologue from a frail old man who looks like a gentle breeze might turn him to dust, you begin to think this is going to be a long, long evening. But after just a few moments, Marcus Truschinski got us into the rhythm, and off we went into the American Players Theatre production of Tom Stoppard's "Travesties."

Meeting autism at home
There are a lot of emotions that roar through someone, including me, when you hear the word "autism." And there is nothing like living with someone with autism, even for a brief time, to understand both the difficulties and opportunities of the disorder.

Gretchen Mahkorn is 21. She's an actor. She has a BFA in acting from a respected program. She's smart. She's determined. She networks. She has a resume. She has history onstage from a very young age. And her next acting job is in a play produced by the theater company she founded when she was just 16 years old, The World's Stage Theatre Company.

Finding the good in local government
One of the easiest things to do is to find something wrong and then run out and criticize a local government about it. So I think it's only fair to occasionally give a nod to stuff that people do for citizens that makes life a lot easier.

NCAA ruling marks the beginning of change in college sports
A federal court ruling last week shook to the core the belief that amateurism is the key spoke in college athletics. This is, of course, in response to the decades of colleges and universities making billions of dollars on the backs of their athletes. Think of wealthy landowners and their serfs.

Chamber's "Master Class" is a triumph for two women
"Master Class" is truly a one woman play, even though there are other characters scattered about. They are all mere foils for a part that demands towering strength and passion, which Angela Iannone delivers in spades. But it is also a very special job by director Jill Anna Ponasik.

There is a way to look at this legendary story, however, through the eyes of a woman, and you can find a story with enough twists and turns to capture and hold your imagination.
