Milwaukee Repertory Theater Presents An Iliad
The battlefield comes to life in an exhilarating story, as history leaps off the page and into the theater. Amid clashing swords and shields, broken hearts and broken oaths, the bonds of friendship and family are tested in An Iliad. One superstar actor, a cellist, and the dropping jaws of the audience members are all you need for this 90-minute epic ride.
When adapters Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare set out to bring Homer’s classic tale to the stage, they kept it simple by focusing on the talents of the two artists. For the Milwaukee Repertory Theater’s production, actor James Devita is joined by cellist Alicia Storin. And while the staging is simple, the performance is anything but—”pure theater,” wrote Time Out New York, “shocking, glorious, primal and deeply satisfying.”<p>
Milwaukee Repertory Theater
For well over half a century, the Milwaukee Repertory Theater has been a home to artists. First founded as the Fred Miller Theatre, the venue initially drew audiences with Broadway hits and familiar faces. But the company’s ambitions soon grew, and it met the ’60s head-on by establishing resident actors, making a commitment to staging groundbreaking performances, and expressing a willingness to give bell-bottoms a try. In the decades since, the Milwaukee Repertory Theater has continued to produce seasons of world-premiere works and beloved classics in the Patty and Jay Baker Theater Complex.
Milwaukee Repertory Theater
Every year the staggering scope of the Milwaukee Repertory Theater spans 11 plays—and more than 600 performances. Since first raising its curtain in 1954 as the Fred Miller Theatre, each season has been packed to the brim with both classic and contemporary favorites from Broadway and beyond. The 2014–15 season, for instance, opened with the musical satire The Doyle & Debbie Show, featured The Color Purple in autumn, and lit up the holiday season with A Christmas Carol. As if this weren't a packed enough calendar, the Rep also hosts regular cultural events, offers classes for grownups and young adults, and manages to remember the birthday of every single person in Milwaukee.
