Milwaukee Rep - Stackner Cabaret
A Comedic Classical Music Duel
Registration is closed, contact organizer to be placed on wait list: firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-358-4478
For anyone who ever dreamed big—and then didn’t quite make it – comes the riotous story of two childhood friends who spent years chasing the same goal: concert pianist stardom. Two actors, two pianos, and dozens of characters grace the stage in this hilarious portrayal of pushy parents, eccentric teachers, and the triumphs and tortures of being extraordinarily good musicians. Featuring the music of Bach, Beethoven, Billy Joel, Jerry Lee Lewis and more, this wildly popular show not only hits all the right notes, it tickles the ivories and your funny bone too.
Running time: 2 hours with one intermission. Learn more by visiting the 2 Pianos 4 Hands website.
Our play will be in the intimate Stackner Cabaret. Information including photos about this unique theater venue.
The Stackner Cabaret is handicapped accessible to the main level and chairs. Most of our seating will be on staggered tables and chairs set on platform deck flooring that are an easy, shallow step-down/step-up between levels of tables and chairs. The backs of the chairs provide good step-down/step-up support.
