“Blues in the Night is FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Sabina and I went to Blues in the Night (http://www.milwaukeerep.com/season/blues.html) tonight and were blown away. It was so much fun and the venue (Stackner Cabaret) is as good a place to see intimate theater as we've ever been. The talent in this show from the singing and dancing to the acting is amazing and that you can get tickets for $35 is among the best deals of any theater anywhere.

“Gives Milwaukee a bad Rep”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The Milwaukee Rep Theatre is usually known for off-beat yet compelling theatrical productions. My wife took part in their summer program this past July and my in-laws are contributors. However, my experience of the Rep has been lackluster, dangerous, and disappointing.

If it's your first time at the Rep, the best advice I can give you is, watch your step! There are no running lights along the wide and chunky stairs leading up into the seating areas in the smaller theatres. Several people stumbled and fell up and down the stairs (in the pitch dark) at my wife's showcase and it was a wonder that they weren't seriously hurt.

In addition, the productions director was unfriendly and not very helpful when our family was trying to find the correct theatre door.

Overall, I would skip any production at the Rep and go instead to Ziedler Hall.

“A Milwaukee Highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Milwaukee is lucky to have a wonderful variety of high quality cultural attractions, far surpassing those of other cities its size. The Reperatory Theatre is near the top of the list. As a season subscriber for many years, I have watched its complexion change with the various artistic directors, but have always been impressed with the production even when I did not particularly like a certain play. I love the variety offered by the 3 venues. The Rep in Depth lectures before performances are well worth coming 45 minutes early. Always informative, they are occasionally an entertaining show unto themselves.

“Luck for Milwaukee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

The Rep has really stepped up its performances and shows. We were season ticket members 25 years ago and gave them up since it was not interesting anymore. We went to 3 shows last year and this year have bought a 4 ticket package. Thanks for stepping up!!!
