The Milwaukee Symphony Plays the Music of the Rolling Stones
The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra breaks out its paisley scarves and red wax lips to pay tribute to one of the most iconic rock bands of all time—the Rolling Stones. Joined by the doppeljaggers of Windborne Music, the symphony uses its full-bodied sound to reinvent such chart-topping hits as "Satisfaction," "Gimme Shelter," and "Ruby Tuesday." Throughout the spectacle, a dazzling light show brings the audience all the thrills of seeing the legendary act in person or chasing a laser pointer across the living room.
The Riverside Theater
As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO's Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium's drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
