Milwaukee Repertory Theater continues its 2013/14 Season with a celebrated production of Peter Quilter’s End of the Rainbow, a new play with music. End of the Rainbow is set in December 1968, and Judy Garland is about to make her comeback . . . again. In a London hotel room preparing for a series of concerts, with both her new young fiancé and her adoring accompanist, Garland struggles to get “beyond the rainbow” with her signature cocktail of talent, tenacity and razor-sharp wit. This savagely funny drama offers unique insight into the inner conflict that inspired and consumed

one of the most beloved figures in American popular culture. The recipient of rave reviews in London, Broadway and L.A., including four Olivier Award nominations and three Tony Award nominations, End of the Rainbow stars 12-time Jeff Award-winning Chicago actress Hollis Resnik as Judy Garland. Resnik will be the first American-born actress to play the role. Joining her are Thomas J. Cox (Anthony), Nicholas Harazin (Mickey) and Rep Associate Artist Jonathan Gillard Daly (Various). Directed by Rep Artistic Director Mark Clements, End of the Rainbow was featured in Time Magazine’s “Top Ten” List and called “electrifying” by The New York Times.

Set along the shore of Lake Michigan east of Lake Drive in Fox Point sits this architecturally magnificent Tudor that blends the best of old world craftsmanship with today’s luxury amenities. Built in the 1920s, this four-bedroom, three-full and two-half bath home, offers generous rooms sizes filled with the charm and grace that makes homes of this period so desirable. The challenge owning a home such as this often is the compromise between keeping the best of what’s original and incorporating the comforts and conveniences homebuyers today expect. To breathe new life into this grand home, the homeowners updated the look and presentation of the entire home with a focus on two major remodeling projects, the kitchen and the master suite.

The master suite presented and entirely different set of challenges. The homeowners wanted to transform the existing master bedroom, bathroom and an office into a sumptuous master suite befitting the elegance of a 1920s charmer. The space had great potential, but the period charm and character was lost in a previous remodel done sometime in the 1980s. Walls needed to be moved, hallways with oddly intrusive closets were removed and all the electrical and plumbing needed to be upgraded to today’s standards. The master bedroom had built-ins that outlived their usefulness and the bathroom, which lacked modern luxuries, could best be described as dark, cold and dated. The result is an elegant retreat that flows gently from the graceful master bedroom,

The main level features a generous family room which flows through double French doors into a sunny family room.

There is no shortage of spectacular and historic residences in the Milwaukee area. Early captains of industry that helped make Milwaukee famous had the wealth and taste to create lavish residences to rival any in the country. Local architects and artisans became known for their work on these homes and their legacy of craftsmanship lives on in these many fine estates. Perhaps no one made a bigger contribution to the building and design of Milwaukee’s historic residences than architect Fitzhugh Scott. Known by many for his commercial buildings, like The Allen Bradley Corporation, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and the Milwaukee Country Club, Scott was highly sought after as a residential architect by Milwaukee’s most prominent citizens. Home suggested by Mike Quinlevan of Shorewest Realtors® January 2014


M i n d Yo u r M a n o r One of Scott’s masterpiece private residences is this inspired English Georgian estate at 800 W. Bradley Road, in River Hills, built for Irving Seaman. Irving, along with his brother Harold, ran the Seaman Body Corporation which supplied automobile bodies to the Nash Motors Company in Kenosha. When Irving inherited the company it was a manufacturer of fine furniture and wooden telephone booths. By 1909, Irving converted the company to a produce wooden car bodies for the automobile industry. Nash motors purchased a partial interest in the Seaman Corporation to ensure its supply of car bodies and ultimately, in 1936, purchased the company outright. At one point in its history, the Seaman Body Corporation

Child’s Play how imaginative play benefits your child

Between the everyday obligations of school, sports and other extra-curricular activities, many children equate playtime with sitting in front of the television, computer or other electronic device. This dependence on electronic devices can be linked to a list of issues, including childhood obesity, as well as reduced cognitive and muscle development. Children who instead engage in imaginative or pretend play are offered a stress-free environment where their dreams have no boundary. This type of activity just comes naturally for kids because it’s just plain fun.

Create a pretend play paradise A make-believe-friendly setting begins with the parents. Here are a few ideas to create an environment that fosters creative, imaginative play for your little ones: Focus on fun: A truly free setting for imaginative play is one without structure or rules. Let your child know there are no expectations or wrong outcomes while they are pretending. There may be moments where you have to intervene, but the atmosphere should be relaxed and free from rules. Give toys that encourage pretend play: Make sure your kids have toys that allow them to express themselves. The Calico Critters toy line is the ideal choice for parents seeking timeless, classic toys that delight children and promote wholesome values through pretend play. Children will love these adorable, high-quality miniature animal figures, which include families of rabbits, dogs, cats, bears and more. For more information, visit January 2014
