Tony & Tina's Wedding
When it premiered off-Broadway in 1988, Tony &Tina’s Wedding quickly gathered a following for its unconventional send-up of the Italian-American wedding between the Nunzio and Vitale families. The interactive performance has since been lauded by almost every major publication. Covert performers are placed at the tables of seated audience members, with each guest having a one-of-a-kind theatergoing experience based on seating, interactivity, and promising to not dig their own plot holes. A robust Italian dinner and slices of decadent wedding cake precede a rush onto the theater’s sprawling dance floor, where toe-tapping tunes bridge the gap between the Nunzio and Vitale clans. Like jokes from a cigar-chomping uncle, the reception includes appearances from a pregnant bridesmaid, a stripper girlfriend, and a drunk priest, with all of them speeding the evening’s festivities to an unpredictable and sidesplitting finale.
Captain Frederick Pabst contributed to Milwaukee’s status as a cultural landmark of the upper Midwest by building Pabst Theater, formally known as Das Neue Deutsche Stadt-Theater, in 1895. According to legend, when he was informed that his theater had burned to the ground, the brewing magnate interrupted his European vacation to wire home the order to “Rebuild at once!”—and 11 months later, the stage was completed anew. Where the old theater honored German artists by having their names inscribed along the cornice of the auditorium, the new building featured an international consortium of cultural notables. The theater’s globe-spanning influences were made even more apparent with the installation of an Austrian crystal chandelier and an Italian marble staircase.
