In Tandem stages a special benefit production of Jesus Christ Superstar

By Russ Bickerstaff
I’m not a huge fan of Andrew Llyod Webber and I’m particularly disinterested in Jesus Christ Superstar. It’s one of those shows that gets a round a lot for various reasons . . . it’s probably not a very bad piece of musical theatre and Id probably generally have a better opinion of it if it didn’t get so over-produced . . . but that being said, In Tandem Theatre is staging a productio...

In Tandem Theatre’s MRS. MANNERLY

By Russ Bickerstaff
Jeffrey Hatcher is one of the single best comedic playwrights working today. I could go on for thousands of words about all the stuff that he’s written, but his Three Viewings (which I saw with Kopper Bear productions several years ago) and Murderers (which I saw with Next Act considerably more recently) had some of the cleverest comic lines I’ve ever heard. And while his Ten Chimneys (which...

Thrill Me: The Leopold and Loeb Story with In Tandem Theatre

By Russ Bickerstaff
A Casual Evening’s Musical Murder Given its relatively humble components, In Tandem Theatre’s final show of the season seems very casual. Actually, it ends up being one of the more seamless musicals of the season—endlessly better than most of the overblown out of town musical trash blowing through the Marcus Center and the Milwaukee Theatre over the course of the past season. In Tandem’s...
