Back for an encore performance, this blues and pop musical set in 1969 is about three sisters -- an idealistic activist, a suburban housewife and a diligent professor -- who gather for the third year in a row for a funeral. Two years ago it was Mamma. Last year it was Daddy. This year it is their only brother. When they return to pack up the family home, sparks fly as they share wine, memories, dreams and secrets. During the last night in their childhood home, these three sisters determine what family means to them now. Starring Helen Hayes Award winners Bernardine Mitchell (A Resting Place with Morgan Freeman, Mahalia) and Roz White (Gee's Bend). Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“(Malary) has a versatile baritone voice with the control to whisper through tender passages, the power to raise the roof. He connects with the audience while crooning and maintaining (a) reserved demeanor and elegant style.” —Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Isn’t it Romantic
written and directed by David Koch
music directed by William Knowles
featuring Jimi Ray Malary and Lori Williams
MetroStage favorite Jimi Ray Malary returns to MetroStage after past hit shows, Ellington: The Life and Music of The Duke and Nat King Cole: King of Cool. This new romantic musical tribute features the songs that epitomize the many stages of romance from popular music’s most prolific and enduring songwriters: Jerome Kern, Rodgers and Hart, and George and Ira Gershwin. Direct from the Stackner Cabaret at Milwaukee Rep, Mr. Malary will be joined by Lori Williams (another MetroStage favorite featured in All Night Strut in 2005)
