“Great kid program outdoors all summer”
Review of Marcus Center

Marcus Center
Ranked #51 of 182 things to do in Milwaukee
Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The Marcus Center also includes a couple of outdoor stages that are used during summer for movies and kid friendly performances. We've attended many of the shows at the Kidz Stage- a much smaller venue they own just behind the main center. Tuesday through Thursday at 10 am during summer months you can see a variety of entertainers for free. We saw a naturalist who brought snakes & frogs, some theater performers doing storytelling, and a magician. All the shows seem to be interactive and are great for younger kids. Come a few minutes early to get a good seat as there are often plenty of daycares or school groups who come.

We also have a subscription to First Stage performances, which are world class, in my opinion. There isn't a bad seat in the whole theater. The works are often original based on stories. The snacks are cookies and juice packs and are affordably prices. This is a great venue for families.

The venue is pretty typical for larger urban centers, but the Milwaukee Ballet elevates the hall to a top venue. I've been going for years to the ballet, and this company has been steadily improving to be a top quality production company with interesting and original works. They are a joy to watch, and work hard at appealing to all ages and interests. We've taken several people who "don't like ballet" and watched them be transported. Go. You'll like it.

It has always been my dream to travel to NYC to see a Broadway performance completely ignoring the Annual traveling Broadway show right here at the PAC. Until now. The PAC is such a beautiful regal theater. This season has been fantastic. Jersey Boys, whit Christmas, War Horse and Flashdance have all been excellent selections. The casts have been great. The singing and dancing superb. They are currently taking subscriptions for 2015 and I'm taking a group with me to the PAC. Haven't given up on taking a group to NYC for a show but this is the next best thing

Wonderful symphony concert. If in town when they are playing a concert don't miss the chance to hear one of the best in the country.
