It’s always nice to hear about an upcoming show in an intimate venue. Later-on it’s nice when the show in question happens to feature really good actors. If it also happens to be a world premiere, that’s kind of a bonus. Only recently did I get formal word on further details on Windfall Theatre’s upcoming world premiere of Identita.

Windfall Theatre brings a fun little mutation of history to a fun little stage.

By Russ Bickerstaff
The Windfall Theatre bring this Milwaukee Premiere of David Davalos’ Wittenberg to its cozy stage that month. On the surface, its kind of a simple intellectual comedy, but it’s a fun intellectual comedy. Three really good actors play three historical characters . . . .1 real—the other two kind of surreal. The idea that Dr. Faustus, Martin Luther and Hamlet, Prince of Denmark all knew each...

As nice an idea as it might be to have analogues of To...
