Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra presents Majestic Bruckner
Bruckner’s vast symphonic landscape, the Seventh Symphony, is a specialty of Edo de Waart. Epic in its scope. Unrivaled in its power and majesty. Plus, our own principal cellist Susan Babini plays the soulful Schelomo of Ernest Bloch.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler, from an adaption by Christopher Bond. May 19 – June 11. Cabot Theatre, Skylight Music Theatre, Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway. Sweeney Todd is a broken barber whose life and family were stolen from him by an unscrupulous judge. Watch him find bloody revenge through a cutthroat alliance with the lonely and enterprising Mrs. Lovett and her unsavory pies in this collision of comedy, corruption and cuisine.
March 24-May 28, 2017 located in the Stackner Cabaret

A COSTUME DRAMA NOT TO BE MISSED
From the award-winning Shared Experience Theatre Company in the U.K. comes this engaging adaptation of Charlotte Brontë’s epic story of a spirited young woman in a man’s world searching for a sense of self. Orphaned Jane overcomes a rough start in life to become an accomplished governess at the mysterious home of Mr. Rochester. Passions grow between them when a secret is revealed, threatening Jane’s hopes for the future. Told by eight actors playing more than 20 roles, The New York Times raved that “this Jane Eyre provides a bite…think of it as Brontë unbuttoned.”
