This was a delightful performance. Very enjoyable. We were part of a very small house, but the performers did a great job nonetheless.

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)
