It's your last chance to see a few of these!
At the Milwaukee Rep’s Stackner Cabaret, the great Frank Ferrante brings his one-man tribute to Groucho Marx. If you know the words to “Lydia, oh Lydia…,” you can sing along (“She has eyes that men adore so/And a torso even more so”). Or if you don’t know the words…well why are you ignoring one of the great poems of American literature?!
Out west, the Wilson Center for the Performing Arts hosts the Japanese drumming ensemble, Taiko Project, which blends the powerful rhythms of traditional Kodo drumming with the postmodern, “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink (but maybe even that)” percussive inventiveness of Stomp.
And even more international music is on stage at the East Side’s Plymouth Church. The Hindole Majumdar School of Music and Dance holds a fundraiser that features master Sitar player Indrajit Banerjee, Kathak Dance, and fusion music featuring Banerjee and jazz trumpeter Russ Johnson.
It’s the last chance to see several shows around town, including Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s fresh take on The Mikado, and Acacia Theatre’s celebrated production of Mark St. Germain’s Best of Enemies, the story of the relationship between an African-American civil rights activist and a leader of the Ku Klux Klan.
