Loved everything about the Rep and would not hesitate to see another show here. Perfect location along the Riverwalk in downtown Milwaukee, excellent set design, not a bad seat, great acting, and adult beverages! Even a gift shop..

I surprised my husband with tickets to see "Harvey". This was a first time visit for both of us. Made the trek from Green Bay. We were so impressed with the theater and the stage. The performance was brilliant! We booked a hotel stay at the Intercontinental because it looked to be the closest hotel. Not only was it close,... More

Was here for volunteering. Was not planning on acting but learned we are all actors in our own lives. Small gestures make our world a better place to live.

Just a wonderful space for live theatre. Great acoustics and sight lines. As with any Milwaukee venue adult beverages are available in the lobby. Stop at the Stackner Cabaret before your show for a snack, dinner or cocktail. And remember, Support your local arts.

My frequent experience in attending life theater is being among more affluent, white audiences. I'm white-Anglo and comfortably retired. The "Rep's" several theaters have several productions each season that seem to me to be relevant to diverse audiences. The latest musical, "The Color Purple," is just one example of the Rep's quality efforts.

I have been a season ticket holder for many years. There is a good reason that I keep buying the tickets, the performances are wonderful! I Recommend to everyone.

I have rarely been disappointed in any performance at The Milwaukee Rep! Even All The Bad Things I Did would not normally be my first choice for a performance type but it was so well done, we enjoyed it.

I was skeptical that they could pull off such a serious book/movie as a musical, but I was wrong. It is very somber and serious at the beginning, but as the lead character, Celie, comes into her own and sheds her oppressive life, the music comes alive and it leaves you happy, hopeful and uplifted. The cast is very good... More
