Milwaukeeans, you'll get your chance to see LOMBARDI.
Although the Broadway production has closed, Wisconsin theatre fans will be able to see a new production in October at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
This is great news; the Rep has consistently produced first-class work. Should be interesting to see what they can so with Simonson's play.
Company member Lee E. Ernst (right) will be taking the title role. Sanford Robbins will direct.
LOMBARDI is scheduled to run October 11 – November 13, 2011, joining Ten Chimneys, Next to Normal, To Kill a Mockingbird and Othello in The Rep's 2011-12 Powerhouse season. The Rep is currently selling season subscriptions, but hasn't yet started single-production ticket sales.
More details should be made available soon. Keep watching this space, or call (414) 224-9490 or visit www.milwaukeerep.com.
