Here’s a preview of this year’s series:
Thursday, October 15
Winner of six Tony Awards and loosely based on the career of The Supremes, the musical features such hits as “Steppin’ to the Bad Side,” “One Night Only,” and the show stopping “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going.” Dreamgirls celebrates the music of the 1960s and 70s with dynamic performances and a moving look at the behind-the-scenes reality of the entertainment industry.
It’s the glitz and glam you expect from a big-name show in New York or Chicago, right in your own back yard. It’s the kind of music that makes you want to sing at the top of you lungs in your shower. And in the Quadracci Powerhouse, you’ll feel like you’re right there in the action. If you liked The Color Purple, Ragtime, or any big musical ever, you’ll love this.
Dreamgirls also runs from September 22 to November 1 at the Quadracci Powerhouse.
Thursday, December 10
A murder is committed at a newly opened rooming house, and the snowbound hosts and guests—with the aid of a police inspector—must determine who the killer is before he or she strikes again. Agatha Christie’s masterful whodunit weaves an intricate plot filled with nerve-rattling suspense, all leading up to an unforgettable final twist!
Do you like to play clue? Do you like a good mystery? Do you like accusing people of murder? This is the perfect, classic murder mystery. A bunch of people are trapped in a manor together, and one of them is the killer. Bring your friends and see who guesses correctly first!
The Mousetrap also runs November 17 to December 20 at the Quadracci Powerhouse.
Thursday, March 10
If you liked Ain’t Misbehavin’ or Low Down Dirty Blues, you’re going to love this. Blue music is fun to listen to and easy to like! Even if you aren’t familiar with the song titles, you’ll recognize the music from one of the greatest blues artists!
Featuring the incomparable Zonya Love, who last season brought the house down as Celie in The Color Purple, and Kenney M. Green (Ain’t Misbehavin’) as her sidekick Pickle. The Devil’s Music features songs including, “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” “St. Louis Blues,” “Baby Doll,” and “Tain’t Nobody’s Bizness If I Do.
Devil’s Music also runs January 22 to March 20 at the Stackner Cabaret.
The Invisible Hand
Thursday, March 31
Written by Milwaukee native and 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winner for Drama Ayad Akhtar, The Invisible Hand follows Nick Bright, an American investment banker, who is kidnapped in Pakistan, where his captors demand he raise his ransom by trading in the financial markets.
In teaching his captors how to manipulate the market, Nick fundamentally alters his relationship with them – and the world. This thrilling new play by one of America’s hottest playwrights examines how far we’ll go to save ourselves and the ramifications of our actions on global politics.
Do you consider yourself financially savvy? Are you fascinated by Wall Street? Do you keep up with world news at all? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll be captivated by The Invisible Hand. This show will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen next!
The Invisible Hand also runs February 24 to April 3 at the Stiemke Studio.
