Perhaps the most fundamental task for any stage actor is drawing an audience into a story through the recitation of dialogue. The actor is usually aided in this task by the set, costuming, props, lighting, sound design and the like. Quite often, however, smaller studio theaters lack such decoration, and actors are challenged to deliver the full reality of the play to audiences. The Boulevard Theatre's production of the Victor L. Cahn comedy Roses In December, opening this week, offers just such a challenge to two different actors from two different...

Theater Review

What could be more perfect than staging Moliere's comedy The Misanthrope during an election year? The Boulevard Theatre hits the target with a production that scores on almost every level. The play, written in 1666, tells the story of Alceste, who may be the most famous misanthrope of all time. From his opening lines until his final speech, Alceste shows his general dislike for humanity. He's unafraid to tell people exactly what he thinks of them. He only equivocates on the subject of love, "where reason doesn't rule." Alceste is a prime example of this, as he pines for a young coquette.

As a result, Boulevard Theatre will open its season with a production of the play on Tuesday, Aug. 12 . . .

Tonight @ the Boulevard Theatre - 8:00 p.m.

For the Boulevard Theatre’s latest production, four Milwaukee actors in their late-20s and early-30s have tackled the challenge of, well, playing four Milwaukeeans in their late-20s and early-30s. It might not be a challenge on par with playing Hamlet, but the cast brings great charisma and comic timing to the company’s . . .

Just a little further south, Alchemist Theatre and Insurgent Theatre open a pair of one-act dramas in a double feature that promises to be considerably darker than Eureka!

Theater Review

The Boulevard Theatre closes its season with the premiere of local playwright Chad M. Rossi’s Eureka!, a coming-of-age love story/buddy-comedy set in Milwaukee. Cesar Gamino and Jason Krukowski play Wayne and Clyde: a couple of guys in their late-20s sharing an apartment. Clyde’s a dreamer who wants to reform society. Wayne has a stable job and dates a dominant, conservative woman named Nancy (Rachael Lau). Clyde feels threatened by this until he finds his own love interest in the free-spirited Teri (Rachel Lewandowski).
