The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?
Why don’t men know what women want? To answer that, posits writer/actor/standup comic Robert Dubac’s long-running hit The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?, just look at who they’ve been trying to find out from. Starting with freshly heartbroken protagonist Bobby, Dubac then transforms himself into a consortium of untrustworthy male advisors. There’s the retired colonel raising five daughters; the philosophizing exchange student; the chauvinistic heartbreaker; the jovial old man; and the chivalrous galoot. It all adds up to what the Sun Sentinel described as “ a hilarious 90-minute self-help therapy session” in a 2005 review.
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.
