Coming soon: "Life (X) Three"

French Playwright Yasmina Reza is the author of one of the most performed plays in recent years, "Art," the enchanting story of a piece of all-white art and how it has an impact on the relationship of two friends.

It's been done several times in Milwaukee, most notably a few years ago by the late Cornerstone Theatre in what was – and remains – one of the top plays on stage in Milwaukee history.

Reza comes back now to Boulevard Theatre with a production of "Life (X)Three," her comedy that features a misbehaving 6-year-old who is never seen onstage.

It's a play about relationships and love and lust and rivals and struggling for attention and behaving in a manner not fitting for civilization. Sounds a lot like life, doesn't it?

The play is being directed by the steady and creative hand of Mark Bucher, who has ridden hard on Boulevard for 27 years, struggling against the odds to put on high-quality plays and give opportunity to new and emerging artists. If Milwaukee had a Mr. Theater award, he would be in the running.

"Life (X) Three" opens Friday, Sept. 21 and runs through Oct. 14. Tickets are available at (414) 744-5757.

Just a heads-up that this played actually opened last night - Wednesday - and continues to run its opening weekend through tonight, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon! Thanks for talking the BLVD up!
