A theatre group in transition turns to a classic Shakespearian romantic comedy

By Russ Bickerstaff
  Last fall, Jerry Gomis and Suzanne Graff left Door Shakespeare. When two directors leave a relatively small theatre company, things change. And when a company is as appreciated as Door Shakespeare is, things don't collapse altogether. They shift, but they don't collapse.   And so it is that the largely outdoor summer theatre company in Door County returns to a two-show season this summer und...

I’m fairly certain 90% of the population would diagnose themselves as being people who “can’t sing.” Be that as it may, a concert featuring 3 women who can’t sing would be kind of a disaster if the concert pulled three women in off the street who couldn’t sing and set them in front of a piano. (Althoguh I think it’d be a fun experi...

Another look at The Milwaukee Rep’s LOMBARDI

By Russ Bickerstaff
The Packers had just finished a game that put them at 7-0 on the season—a game that secured them on the top of the league for at least a couple more weeks. It was a Sunday night—last night and the Quadracci Powerhouse Theatre was filled with Packers apparel.

Elizabeth Shipe/Pear Photography’s Grimm photo project continues with an opening in Fond Du Lac

By Russ Bickerstaff
As side projects for stage actors go, Elizabeth Shipe’s Reconstructing Grimm is an interesting labor of love. Shipe has proven to be a talented actress in a few high-profile local stage productions (most recently In Tandem’s Art of Murder.) In the recent past, she has also worked with Pear Photography to establish a photo project where in she and various other local actors pose in costume in...
