Moon Over the Brewery
Tonight @ Broadway Theatre Center, 8 p.m.
Poets build castles in the air and lunatics live in them; in Moon Over the Brewery, the latest production from the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, single mom Miriam Waslyk obsessively paints the full moon and her teenage daughter Amanda is a gifted child whose imaginary friend "Randolph" helps her scare away any man who might come between them. Enter Warren Zimmerman, a mailman with a heart as big as his belly—and with his eye on a place in Miriam's life—and the stage is set for a confrontation between dreams and less-than-perfect reality.
