You on the Moors Now

Theatre Building, Mainstage Theatre 2400 E. Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI

The UWM Theatre Department's exploration of the moors culminates with an imagined reunion of 19th-century heroines from Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, and Little Women. Only this time around, these heroines resolutely decline the advances of their famous suitors and grapple with the challenge of reconciling historical romantic ideals with their contemporary perspectives on courtship. This clever play offers an empowering perspective on a group of women who not only reject their passionate suitors but also defy the conventions and societal norms expected of them.

Once Upon a Mattress

Theatre Building, Mainstage Theatre 2400 E. Kenwood Blvd., Milwaukee, WI

Once Upon a Mattress, a comic masterpiece based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Princess and the Pea, propelled Carol Burnett to stardom as Winnifred the Woebegone, a simple swamp princess hoping to win the hand of the prince despite all odds. This hilariously wacky romp is filled with witty, charming, and wonderfully romantic songs and dance numbers composed by Mary Rodgers. It serves as a delightful bookend to a season that began with a neglected gem by her father, Richard Rodgers.
