On Wednesday, November 13th, Milwaukee Elites were invited out to the Milwaukee Repertory Theater to enjoy pre-reception bites and drinks, followed by the 7:30pm showing of the new comedy production: The Nerd!
As guests arrived, they checked-in to receive swag from both Yelp and The Rep, their show tickets, and a complementary drink ticket to redeem at the theater’s bar, Stackner Cabaret. Each attendee also had the opportunity to enter in a raffle in hopes of winning tickets for The Legend of Georgia McBride, another upcoming production. There was plenty of time pre-show to mingle and enjoy the spread of deliciousness brought to Elites by Antigua Latin Inspired Kitchen. The yummy sliders, both cheeseburger and pulled pork, paired with house salad and poblano pasta, all went down a treat.
As 7:30pm approached, the lights dimmed in the reception area and guests were asked to take their seats for show time! The Nerd comes from the much-loved playwright of The Foreigner and is a new production being called one of the funniest plays ever written. When Willum has an unexpected party guest, who turns into an unwanted houseguest, he executes an elaborate plan to rid himself of the wacky nuisance. Aided by a rag-tag team that includes friends, a would-be lover and an oblivious boss, creative acts of desperation quickly dissolve into utter mayhem. The twists and turns of this madcap comedy lead to an ending that left everyone feeling happily hoodwinked! Plenty of laughter erupted throughout the show.
A big thank you the Milwaukee Reparatory Theater for this treat of a night and warm hospitality. To Antigua, thank you for the great food that was very well received and appreciated by all!
