A quick look at Victory for Victoria

Russ Bickerstaff, of the Shepherd Express, was kind enough to take a little look into Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s production of Victory for Victoria!

“One of the largely unsung figures in US history gets a closer look this month thanks to Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s production of the original musical Victory for Victoria. From obscurity to prominence, the show sounds like a fascinating biography. The book is by Susan Peterson Holmes with music by Alissa Rhode and lyrics by Peggy Peterson Ryan. Emerging talent Allie Babich is given a fascinating challenge in portraying a character as complex as Woodhull. She’s got plenty of charisma to shine into a very charismatic figure from the margins of US history.

Victory for Victoria runs Oct. 27 – 30 at the Wauwatosa Woman’s Club on 1626 Wauwatosa Avenue.”

‘Royal Hilarity’

Gwendolyn Rice from The Isthmus calls Four Seasons Theatre’s Spamalot “Royal Hilarity – “Spamalot” captures the irreverent spirit of Monty PythonRoyal hilarity”

“Christiaan Smith-Kotlarek’s gorgeous baritone as Sir Galahad is a great match for his duet partner, Samantha Sostarich and her killer soprano as the Lady of the Lake. One almost wishes they had a standard love song to sing instead of the ironic tongue-in-cheek number “The Song that Goes Like This.” Brassy and bold, Sostarich is a powerhouse, and as she states over and over in the musical, it’s a shame her character doesn’t have more stage time.”
