Even if you have to work on President's Day, there's plenty going on in Milwaukee all weekend.
Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
Eight magicians – each specializing in their own form of the dark arts – bring their respective bags of tricks to the Marcus Center (via Broadway) for a spectacle that would have David Copperfield picking his jaw up off the floor.
The Pabst Theater
Attendees of this Pabst Theater ballet spectacle will be treated to an evening of breathtaking choreography by some of the best up-and-coming choreographers in the world.
Feb. 16-Feb. 26
Evan P. & Marion Helfaer Theatre
Burlesque, farce and satire come together in Marquette’s production of Thornton Wilder’s 1943 Pulitzer Prize winner, The Skin of Our Teeth. Accompany the intrepid Antrobus family from the ice age to the present as they fight to survive through disaster after disaster.
Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts
Fans of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and Geminiani’s Concerto Grosso for Strings in D Minor should head to Brookfield for an evening of 17th and 18th century works.
Milwaukee Public Museum
It’s fitting that the fundraiser for the museum brings one thing we presently hold very dear (adventurous culinary delights) with another that represents our past and happens to have a booming future (suds).
Bed races, chili, pancakes, and…golf? Yes, this is the Cedarburg Winter Festival and it’s going on its fifth decade of ultra-eclectic fun.
The Charles Allis Art Museum
Learn how to make your own handmade zine in this workshop led by Milwaukee-based artist and illustrator Shaun Watson. Workshop participants will also create a page for a collaborative zine that will be published and sold at Groovy Dog Gallery. Bring a t-shirt to screen print your own Groovy Dog Gallery shirt.
Milwaukee Ale House
This annual beer-a-palooza is always a party, and this year the proceeds benefit the MACC Fund. In addition to imbibing, you can capture the fun in a slow-motion video booth.
