Kathleen Madigan

Warning: contains mild profanity, deep-felt cigarette cravings

A 15-time guest of Jay Leno, star of the 2013 DVD Madigan Again, and winner of the American Comedy Award for Funniest Female Comedian, Kathleen Madigan’s musings have drawn nods from such groundbreakers as Lewis Black and Ron White. Unassuming and deeply relatable, her act might touch on topics as wide-ranging as being single, being drunk, and being drunk and single at Disneyland. It’s that relatability that carries through in her Sirius XM program, Blue Collar Comedy and made her a favorite on USO tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. Madigan has also appeared on numerous iterations of VH1’s I Love the… series and as a talent scout and guest comedian on Last Comic Standing.

The Pabst Theater

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.

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.
