If there is a show, don't miss it! There are 3 theaters and usually 2 plays going on. No theater in the summer.

Whenever I'm going to be in Milwaukee, I always check out what's showing the Rep and have not been disappointed. You can frequently get tickets even if it's a "spur of the moment" decision so don't assume it's too late to get a ticket. The theatre is small enough that anywhere is a good seat and they just do a... More

We have been season ticket holders for several years at both the Powerhouse and the Stackner Cabaret. The productions are always top notch. Even when we may not "enjoy" the current production, we always are able to admire the scenery and the acting skills of the artists. In addition to the theater productions themselves, the staff at the theater, particularly... More

There are several venues within the Rep -- from the Stackner Cabaret to the Quadracci Powerhouse. I visit whenver I can and have never been disappointed. A recent perfromance of Ragtime was truly better than NYC.

The Milwaukee Rep has been Milwaukee's leading theater company for decades. It has three regular performance spaces: The Power House, The Steimke, The Stackner Cabaret. The Cabaret, as the nam,e implies has live music in an intimate bar setting. The Rep. does everything from Shakespeare to contemporary. Recently, with a new artistic director, the Rep. has gone in a more... More

The Quad-Powerhouse Theater is a great location for a very good theater company. They put on a wide variety of plays, so there really is something for everyone. Their production of "A Christmas Carol" every year is a treat. If you like the theater, check out their lineup, there will most likely be something you want to see.

This was my first show in the Quadracci Powerhouse Theater at The Rep!! WOW! Beautiful location - not a bad seat in the house!! We saw "End of the Rainbow" and the performances were exhilarating!!! What a wonderful Saturday night adventure! Will definitely look forward to my next visit!

We have gone to the Rep for many years and the actors are consistently fantastic. It is a joy to watch their talent. Sadly, though, the play choices lately, especially this season, simply do not interest us. The one exception was the outstanding comedy/farce, Noises Off, one of the funniest plays I have ever seen. The others seem preachy and... More

We discovered The Rep 4 seasons ago And have bought at least 9 shows the last 2 seasons. With the addition of Mark Clemens The Rep has moved up a notch in its productions. "Ragtime" was wonderful, I was amazed how they worked such a large cast on the stage and made it seem effortless. The music was so good... More
