Today @ the Marcus Center - 1 & 3:30 p.m.

In the mid-1920s, the Ku Klux Klan had reached the peak of its influence, with an estimated 4 million members nationwide.

Exploring the nature of violence, racism and hope in simple free verse that compellingly delivers the horror and drama of early-20th-century racism. For its latest production, First Stage Children's Theater...

New Year’s Eve was a bit odd. My wife and I ended up watching in some drunken improv at the Alchemist Theatre just hours before the first seconds of 2009. The scheduled super-hero-themed New Year's Eve didn't quite happened, as only one woman showed up in costume as Batgirl, I believe . . . there were a couple of guys in wigs as well, if I'm not mistaken.

Today @ the Marcus Center - noon & 4:30 p.m.

Since 1977, the Milwaukee Ballet has performed a full-length version of The Nutcracker, a two-act ballet about a young girl, Clara, who falls sleep holding a nutcracker doll she received as a Christmas gift, but when internationally renowned choreographer and dancer Michael Pink began his tenure as artistic director of the company in 2002, one of his priorities was to improve Milwaukee Ballet's version of The Nutcracker.
