(Milwaukee, WI) Tonight, Artistic Director Mark Clements and Managing Director Chad Bauman announced Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s 2016/17 Season to a group of The Rep’s subscribers, donors, community leaders, and members of the press.
“The 2016/17 Season is an exciting and eclectic mix of time-honored classics and new plays,” said Artistic Director Mark Clements. “As we continue to create world-class theater that entertains, provokes, and inspires meaningful dialogue, our audiences can expect to see our traditions evolve. An entirely new production of our annual A Christmas Carol comes to life on an unprecedented set in the Pabst Theater. The Quadracci Powerhouse Season once again opens with a beloved musical – this year, we present Man of La Mancha, starring the tremendously talented Nathaniel Stampley. We welcome back one of Chicago’s most renowned actors, Hollis Resnik, who returns to the Quadracci Powerhouse as Amanda in Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie. We nod to our lineage of new works with a production of Larry Shue’s The Foreigner, and present several plays to be seen by Milwaukee audiences for the very first time: The Royale, Grounded, and a production of Ayad Akhtar’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Disgraced.”
“In planning this season, we wanted to select works that best represent our mission to create positive change through world-class productions that are representative of Milwaukee’s rich diversity,” said Managing Director Chad Bauman. “We know that the best plays and musicals in the canon are those which ask important questions while also entertaining, and we crafted the 2016/17 Season with those tenets in mind.”
