“One of the best regional theaters in the country.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

If you want to see great, current, professional theater, the Milw Rep Powerhouse is the place to see it. More intimate theater, Stiemke Theater. Late August through early May. And for lighter pieces and a nice dinner or drink go to the Rep - Stackner Cabaret.

“Ring of Fire performance at the Rep”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Stackner Cabaret is venue of the Milwaukee Rep that I have never before experienced until seeing the Ring of Fire show highlighting the music of Johnny Cash. This intimate setting was perfect for enjoying the performance by Eddie Clendening, Jason Edwards, David Miles Keenan, and Mark W. Winchester. Unfortunately for us, Trenna Barnes, who usually sings with them was out with laryngitis. In spite of this, the group filled in the loss and we were well entertained. We loved the music and being able to be so close to the performance with the dinner-theatre type setting. Great voices and personable performance!

“Our first time here, great facility, great performance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

While visiting my Son and family for Easter, we took in a play at "The Rep", our first such visit, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We loved the overall atmosphere, and the play, "A Raisin in the Sun", was superbly acted and presented. We're already looking at next season's schedule and making plans to return. A nice and unexpected feature: One can order a beverage before the start of the play, and at intermission, there it is - no waiting in line! Also, for $2, one can buy a cup w/lid that allows you to take the beverage into the theatre (and is also a small souvenir).

“Raisin in the Sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

This play was 'ok'-my 14 t.o. daughter loved it but a 3 hour play is too long for me when you can guess the next scene. The theatre is beautiful.
