Dinner and a Show

Meet the actors, business people, educators, writers, directors, and musicians

Our fourth episode focuses on “Dinner and a Show.” We sat down with a few members of the local entertainment scene to discuss the art of spending a night out in Milwaukee, from finding great food in the area to attending live performances.

The podcast, called MKE ARTS LIVE was broadcast at the 88.9 studios and hosted by respected Milwaukee-area story teller Adam Carr. Podcast guests included:

  • Erik Johnson – Dancer, Milwaukee Ballet Company
  • Guy Davies – Good City Brewing Chef
  • Claudia Guzman – Sociocultural Programming Manager at UWM and Co-Programmer for Milwaukee Film’s Cine Sin Fronteras series
  • Bobby Drake – poet, performer and entrepreneur

We also had performances from Peter Thomas, a cellist at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and Jason Powell of the Milwaukee Opera Theater. Slated for October to coincide with National Arts & Humanities Month, and presented by UPAF and Radio Milwaukee, MKE ARTS LIVE! is a series of four FREE variety shows featuring interviews, panel discussions, live performances, audience interaction, and shockingly candid behind-the-scenes perspectives. With local raconteur Adam Carr as your host and guide, you’ll meet actors, business people, educators, writers, directors, and musicians; you’ll get a glimpse of what they’re doing to keep world-class performing arts in Milwaukee; and you’ll walk away with an intimate understanding of why they’re doing it.
