    "Homer, chronicler of the Trojan War, is no exalted Classical aesthete in An Iliad, at the Milwaukee Rep's Quadracci Powerhouse through March 23. As Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare wrote him and James DeVita plays him so intensely, Homer is an old trouper. An endless life of re-telling his seminal tale of heroism and cruelty, self-sacrifice and degradation has exhausted him. Holly Payne costumed him as a battered war correspondent, in duct-taped boots, a shredded vest, frayed cargo pants, and grime." Collapse

    "The Milwaukee Repertory Theater glides into the New Year with a very precise staging of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. Mark Healy's script does a pretty good job of distilling some 120,000 written words on the page to a little over two hours on the stage. Under the direction of Art Manke, the script is well articulated with some genuinely heartfelt moments of motion peeking through the enjoyably prim formality of a Jane Austen story." Collapse
