The Milwaukee Repertory Theater's Holiday 2018 Preview

By Livia Peterson

As Thanksgiving occurs in one week and Christmas occurs in one month, it is time to acquire the holiday spirit via films and live theatrical productions. The Milwaukee Repertory Theater is more than ready to serve a feast of holiday spirit, as Fran Charnas’ The All Night Strut! is currently performing, Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon’s Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley debuts tomorrow, and Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol debuts in a couple weeks.

Now Playing: Fran Charnas’ The All Night Strut! in the Stackner Cabaret and Lauren Gunderson and Margot Melcon’s Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley in the Quadracci Powerhouse

Recently debuted on Friday, November 9, 2018. The All Night Strut! is a fast paced 1930s and 1940s music revue featuring Kelley Faulkner, Katherine Thomas (the sister of Bethany Thomas), Brian Russell Carey, Jonathan Spivey, and Nygel D. Robinson. One of my favorite Stackner Cabaret productions, alongside the Rep's Black Pearl Sings! (2017-2018 Season). Cannot wait to attend this production AGAIN in mid December 2018. Two hours with one fifteen minute intermission. Concludes on Sunday, January 13, 2019. REVIEW COMING SOON!

Debuts TOMORROW! Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley features Margaret Ivey, Deanna Meyers, Sarai Rodriguez, Netta Walker, Jordan Brodess, Fred Geyer, and Yousof Sultani (recently seen in the Rep’s Guards at the Taj). As this is a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, it is bound to be able to allow the Christmas spirit to be in full throttle and nothing beats a good romantic comedy. Two hours and twenty minutes with an intermission. Concludes on Sunday, December 16, 2018.

Upcoming: Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in the Pabst Theater

Debuts on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. Nothing surpasses a redemption story featuring the Milwaukee theater favorites such as Deborah Staples, Angela Iannone, Rana Roman, James Pickering, and Jonathan Wainwright and a slew of young performers, the next generation of theater artists. A unforgettable and magical Christmas tradition. Two hours and ten minutes with an intermission. Concludes on Monday, December 24, 2018.
