“A must for theater lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I see a lot of theater and I've never been disappointed at the Rep. The theater itself is comfortable and small enough that all seats are good ones. But of course, it's the performance that has to pass the test and it does every time. They have a nice variety of packages for a season ticket holder and I've found that I can usually get a last minute ticket so give them a call if you're in town and looking for something to do in the evening. There are many restaurants nearby but if you're unfamiliar w/ the area, call and get info. about parking as that can be a little tricky if you don't know what you're doing. Otherwise, it's a great experience.

“Rivals any theater anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The Milwaukee Rep, with its 3 theater spaces (4 if you include A Christmas Carol in the Pabst), is not only the premier theater company in the midwest, but it rivals great theater anywhere. The Quadracci Powerhouse Theater presents 5 plays a season, both musical and dramatic, from classic to contemporary, with incredible talent drawn from literally all over the world. The Stiemke Theater presents 2 plays a season, usually contemporary, with an edginess to them, often featuring the work of new playwrights. The Stackner Cabaret has 4 fun shows a season that feature singing, dancing, and light variety. We are so fortunate to have The Rep in Milwaukee! We have been season ticket holders for over 40 years and I can truly say that it only has gotten better and better over the years.

“Top Notch Theatre Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We have been season ticket holders to the Milwaukee Rep for over 15 years. The company never fails to deliver excellent performances with creative staging and productions. Even the few productions that have not completely to our taste were expertly done and delivered.
