Come! Tell us your story! ...of a meaningful moment. A story from your block, your neighborhood, your community! Playback Milwaukee Theatre Company will listen generously, then play back your story on the spot with improvised words, movement and music. Tell us your story! Of where you are from. Of what shaped your identity. Of what hurt you and how you have healed. Stories from your block. Come, share your story and discover our common humanity that we share, how we are different, and how we transform. Who has the next story?
