The Milwaukee Repertory Theater Announces the 2018-2019 Season
By Livia Peterson
The Milwaukee Repertory Theater recently announced its 2018-2019 – 65th Season during this evening.
The Milwaukee Rep is the largest performing arts organization in Wisconsin by attendance and one of the largest regional theaters in the United States. The 2018-2019 Season will consist of 15 shows, 700 performances, 75% creators are female or people of color, 60% roles are for people of color, and five World, American, or regional premieres. The Stackner Cabaret renovation will increase seating capacity by 35% and includes new seats, kitchen, bar, and exterior lobby bar.
Individual tickets will be on sale closer to the performance dates. To subscribe to the Milwaukee Rep's 65th Season, please click here.
I support the performing arts whenever I can, even though I admit the Milwaukee Rep is my favorite professional regional theater company. With that said, I am tentatively attending and reviewing In the Heights, Songs for Nobodies, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, A Christmas Carol, The Chinese Lady, and Things I Know To Be True. Still determining whether a season subscription or individual tickets will suit my budget and such.
