It was a cold trip out to Village Church Arts for my first of four shows this weekend: the new Thomas Rosenthal drama When I Give My Heart. The cozy studio space was relatively crowded for opening night. There were complimentary coffee and cookies and such. Settling in to the theatre, I couldn’t help but notice that the set featured a space that was set-up as an interrogation room. As the play s...

Tonight @ the Windfall Theatre - 8 p.m.

Jeff Daniels, best known for his work as an actor in films like Dumb and Dumber and Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo, deserves more attention as a playwright, as plays like his funny comedy The Vast Difference make clear. That play makes its way to downtown Milwaukee in a modest production by Windfall Theatre at Village Church Arts, 130 E. Juneau Ave., which ends its run tonight with an 8 p.m. performance...

Theater Preview

Jeff Daniels, best known for his work as an actor in films like Dumb and Dumber and Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo, deserves more attention as a playwright. But don't expect it to happen anytime soon: Daniels, the witty mind behind Escanaba in Da Moonlight and a half-dozen other comic plays, is scheduled to appear in no less than four major films next year. This week, however, his comedy The Vast Difference...

Theater

Three people play six characters in two acts occurring in one location. The delicate threads of human interaction unfold in a small space as Windfall Theatre presents its production of Three Days of Rain now through March 1. The Richard Greenberg drama has met with considerable acclaim since its California debut in the ’90s. The first act, set in 1995, features two sons and one daughter of a visionary pair of architects meeting to discuss the mysteries behind their parents’ inheritance.
