I'm from out of town but whenever I get to Milwaukee I try to get to a Rep performance. The acting and stage setting are also superb. Last night we saw Glass Managerie which was so spellbinding that it seemed like the audience wasn't even breathing...or at least coughing. The theater is beautiful as is the lobby. There's even a...

We had a wonderful evening at the stiemke studio. The theater holds 124. Very up close and personal performances. The evening was a birthday present which made it extra special.

One of the best theaters in Milwaukee! Four venues: Quadracci Powerhouse Theater, Stackner Cabaret, Stiemke Studio and the Pabst Theatre offering the tradition of the classic A Christmas Carol, to the diversity of Fences by August Wilson. They have gotten much better over the years with the diversity of offerings and it should be applauded. Grab a behind the scenes... More

The directors crammed a lot of music and ideas into this musical revue but the biggest thrill was the musicianship. Three of the four singers were accomplished pianists as well. And a couple played ukuleles. There was even a special appearance by a bugle!

The largest venue (720 seats) is the Quadracci Powerhouse. Seating consists of comfortable theater seats, tiered in a semi-circle facing the stage. The Stiemke Studio (205 seats) consists of tiered padded seating directly facing the stage. The Stackner Cabaret (124 seats) consists of tables and chairs (uncomfortable plastic) and is also a full service restaurant and bar. We have seen... More

Great show, 50 Irving Berlin's songs. The cast did a great job and the show was a nice way to go through 5 decades of work. We had dinner there and was very tasty. Nice production

Had the pleasure of attending a performance of the Man of LaMancha and it was a wonderful performance. This facility is outstanding and there several stages. It is a world class facility. If in ther area it worth a visit.

Excellent as always! The Milwaukee Rep continues to exceed expectations. As good as any New York production at half the price! You won't be disappointed.

This show 'Lady Day' didn't live up to the normal Miwaukee Rep Cabaret bookings. The play features 'Billy Holiday' as a drunk, sad, singer. THe songs were all the same moroseful, uninteresting nature. The one saving grace was the piano player, Abdul Royal. He was masterful and very enjoyable but his role was just background and we didn't get to... More

Have found all of the plays we've seen here through the years to be very professionally done. Some entertaining, some challenging, some unsettling, but all excellent. We aren't happy with the dissolution of the local company - it's good to have new blood, but we really miss the local crew. Wish they had been retained for each of the season's... More
