Due to COVID-19, we have been forced to re-imagine how we produce, rehearse, and perform this season. It remains our top priority to keep our artists, staff, and community safe while still delivering high-quality stories and plays.
At this time, we have postponed our production of PASSING STRANGE to the 21-22 Season. As a full scale musical set to open in August, and the largest production in MCT's history, we recognized that properly producing this musical this Fall would be unrealistic.
In the spirit of PASSING STRANGE, we have since announced and produced The Milwaukee Black Theater Festival, which included 3 full-length staged readings and a robust virtual hub of artwork, music, poetry, community conversations, and more by Black Milwaukee artists.
At this time, we hope to deliver fully staged and filmed versions of THE WAY SHE SPOKE and THE THANKSGIVING play to ensure enough time and preparations are put in place before we invite patrons back into the theater.
We will share further updates on A MOON FOR THE MISBEGOTTEN and INDECENT in the coming months.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate these challenging times. You will be receiving further information in the mail at the beginning of August.
It's not too late to join our incredible family of MCT subscribers! While the season is not quite as planned, we look forward to continuing to engage local artists, tell unique and poignant stories, and contribute to making Milwaukee it's best self.
We invite you to email us at for further information. Please note that the Broadway Theatre Center box office is closed at this time.
