Next Act to Premiere “The Other Place” Feb 2-26

Next month Next Act Theatre will produce the Milwaukee Premiere of THE OTHER PLACE by Sharr White, a fascinating new play about a successful, intelligent woman in crisis, delivered within an intriguing package of mystery and surprise. It will run February 2 – 26, 2017 at Next Act’s home, 255 S. Water St., in Walker’s Point.

Researcher Juliana Smithton is poised for a tremendous clinical breakthrough. But as she presents her findings to colleagues at an upscale beach resort, she is distracted by an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini sitting among the business suits.

Her world begins to unravel, as Juliana’s sense of truth collides with fragmented memories and with family and peers she finds increasingly difficult to trust. White’s psychological mystery grabs the audience and doesn’t let go until its powerful, emotion-filled conclusion.

“You might call it a ghost story for the mind, where part of the challenge, or fun, is trying to figure out what is truth and what is illusion,” says Producing Artistic Director David Cecsarini.

Opening night is Friday, February 3. Tickets range from $28 – $38 and may be purchased by calling 414-278-0765 or visiting


Next Act will be holding a special student and industry night Sunday, February 5, at 7 pm. Any Industry professional or student with a valid ID may purchase $10 tickets beginning at 6 pm that evening. Limit two tickets per person.
