I've started rehearsals for a play called "Getting Out," which opens the end of the month at Dramatists Theatre.

This young professional company has an interesting approach to each season. They take one playwright and do plays by the same writer. This year they are doing the plays of Marsha Norman, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her play, "Night Mother."

Getting Out is the story of a woman who gets out of prison and tries to build a new life after being a murder, prostitute and several other delightful professions. The play will be at a delightful space at the Marian Center for Non-Profits on Milwaukee's South Side.

Tickets can be had by calling (414) 243-9168. The play is rough, with lots of profanity and some strong sexual activity. So leave the kids at home, but do yourself a favor and support this young professional theater company.

With a history in Milwaukee stretching back decades, Dave tries to bring a unique perspective to his writing, whether it's sports, politics, theater or any other issue.

He's seen Milwaukee grow, suffer pangs of growth, strive for success and has been involved in many efforts to both shape and re-shape the city. He's a happy man, now that he's quit playing golf, and enjoys music, his children and grandchildren and the myriad of sports in this state. He loves great food and hates bullies and people who think they are smarter than everyone else.

This whole Internet thing continues to baffle him, but he's willing to play the game as long as keeps lending him a helping hand. He is constantly amazed that just a few dedicated people can provide so much news and information to a hungry public.

Despite some opinions to the contrary, Dave likes most stuff. But he is a skeptic who constantly wonders about the world around him. So many questions, so few answers.
