Milwaukee Event Calendar


Schlitz Happened!

April 20, 2013 7:00 p.m. at Northern Lights Theater

The one-person show stars Milwaukee native and nationally-touring comedian Dobie Maxwell and centers on the distinct culture and modern history of Milwaukee – known nationally as the home of "Happy Days: and "Laverne and Shirley." But for those who hail from “Brew Town,” and know its inner workings, the city is so much more – from its strong German and Polish roots and blue-collar mentality, to long-standing institutions like the Friday night fish fry and bowling leagues. Maxwell will recount the memories of his Milwaukee childhood in two nightly shows at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., each Saturday in April. Tickets are available for $20 or free with a Fire Keeper’s Club card at the Northern Lights Theater Box Office.

Dobie Maxwell is coming home to Milwaukee for a month-long run at Potawatomi Bingo Casino's Northern Lights Theater, presenting "Schlitz Happened! An Old Milwaukee Blatz From The Pabst." Maxwell hopes to make the show a hilarious love letter to the city he says had a lot to do with the man - and comedian - he is today.
