By John Steinbeck
Directed by Mark Clements
A Co-Production with Arizona Theatre Company
January 19 - February 21, 2016 – Quadracci Powerhouse

One of the most celebrated works in American literature, Of Mice and Men is a compelling tale of friendship and survival. George and Lennie are migrant workers who dream of settling down on a farm where the land stretches on forever and the soft rabbits need tending. This classic drama is a touching portrait of two underdogs in pursuit of the American dream. Mark Clements remounts his critically-acclaimed production using Milwaukee Rep favorites after a record-setting production in Philadelphia, where it won 8 Barrymore Awards (including Best Production).

American Song

American Song

By Joanna Murray-Smith
Directed by Mark Clements
March 15 - April 10, 2016 – Quadracci Powerhouse

Andy Mancheski’s child left for school one morning and never came back. A Milwaukee Rep commission from award-winning Australian playwright, Joanna Murray-Smith, American Song asks what it means to be a father, a husband, and a citizen in a complex and changing world. It tells the story of an ordinary man who turned on the television news and knew the story of his happy life had shockingly and irrevocably changed. James DeVita, last seen in his tour-de-force performance of An Iliad, will star in this deeply moving examination of guilt and innocence, parental bonds, and life here and now.
