THE EAGLE IN ME: AN EVENING OF CARL SANDBURG by Jonathan Gillard Daly (September 28 – October 21, 2018): Enjoy a delightful journey through the heart of America by one of its finest storytellers, Pulitzer-Prize winning author, Carl Sandburg. Milwaukee’s own Jonathan Gillard Daly recreates Sandburg’s traveling show, bringing his poetry, folklore and music to life in this exciting world premiere. In Tandem Theatre is pleased to collaborate with Literacy Services of Wisconsin (LSW) on this production to collect books during the run of the show to help support novice readers in our community. This show is sponsored, in part, by a grant from the Milwaukee Arts Board.

MERRY CHRIS-MESS by Anthony Wood (November 30, 2018 – January 6, 2019): Milwaukee’s “goto” for alternative holiday entertainment, In Tandem whips up the perfect concoction of silly songs, hilarious sketches and a one-act parody called It’s A Life by Anthony Wood, author of A Cudahy Caroler Christmas in this brand new holiday show for In Tandem Theatre! (Best suited for ages 16 and over)

THE VELOCITY OF AUTUMN by Eric Coble (February 22 – March 17, 2019): Angela Iannone stars as Alexandra, a woman in a showdown with her family over where she’ll spend her remaining years. After locking herself in her Brooklyn brownstone with enough Molotov cocktails to take out the entire block, her estranged son, Chris, climbs in through the second-story window as the family’s unlikely mediator. A wickedly funny and wonderfully touching discovery of the fragility and ferocity of life. (Some adult language and situations; best suited for ages 16 and over)

THE FABULOUS LIPITONES by John Markus and Mark St. Germain (April 26 – May 19, 2019): When the fourth member of The Fabulous Lipitones keels over while holding a winning B-flat during finals, the remaining three must scramble to find a replacement in time for the national competition! When they hear “Bob” singing beautifully over the phone, they’re all ears…but when they meet him, he’s not quite who they expected. A hilarious take on tolerance, preconceived notions, and the perfect path to harmony in this play with music.
