We've gotten the attention of a couple of year-end listers. Though WE already knew we were doing good work out here, it's always gratifying when others recognize it, too.
But then, Mike went further, calling Beth's performance out as part of a larger theme in the year's theatrical scene, "In 2014, Wisconsin theaters responded to dark themes with hopeful stories." Way to go, Beth! Those are a couple of well-deserved nods.
Optimist Theatre is so proud to create professional performances, using Milwaukee-based cast and crew, and then offer them at no charge to the community.
Thank you for the very nice thoughts about THE WINTER'S TALE, Amanda! Only 4 more nights for you to see it too.

Sharing some kind words from Mr. Dan Schley:
Optimist Theatre has done it again. On a foggy night, on a hill overlooking Milwaukee, they took me right into the world and William Shakespeare and The Winter's Tale. It is great to be able to see such a fabulous group of Milwaukee artists open up a show that I had yet to see. And true to form, I can continue to answer when asked "What's your favorite Shakespeare play?" it's the last one I saw. Thanks to Ron Scot Fry, Susan Scot Fry, Tom Reed, and everyone involved in that experience. The show runs this weekend and next. It's free. And it's fabulous!
Mr. Tom Strini shares some wonderful thoughts at THE WINTER'S TALE. We'll greatly miss your insightful art reviews when you move to Colorado, sir. In the meantime, thank you for coming to this show!
