Cooking with the Calamari Sisters
When Uncle JoJo died, Delphine and Carmela Calamari knew exactly what to do with their inheritance: use it to ensure they finally became the public-access cable stars they were always meant to be. Thus, the Calamari sisters’ Mangia Italiano was born, a cooking show displaying both their musical talents and their prowess with giant plates of pasta. Spouting silliness and one-liners, the duo croons beloved Italian favorites such as “That’s Amore,” “Mambo Italiano,” and “Volare” while concocting dishes and tickling the funny bones of audience members.
Marcus Center for the Performing Arts
During the day, the concrete heights of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts tower over the waters of the Milwaukee River like an imposing, postmodern fortress. As night falls, however, and patrons meander toward their evening's entertainment, the building’s façade glows with colorful, scintillating lights that hint at the eclectic performances inside. The elegant Uihlein Hall regularly hosts such august organizations as the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Florentine Opera Company, whereas smaller, more intimate venues such as the Todd Wehr Theater situate audiences close to the stage so they can immerse themselves in dramas or hear the wail of a set builder who smashed his thumb with a hammer.
