“the kind of work nobody else in Milwaukee does”

The company does the kind of work nobody else in Milwaukee does…the kind of unique approach that makes them such a vital and valued member of the world of theater in Milwaukee.

“material this good and delivered this well”

… a stirring defense of poesy and of collaborative artistic productions, which join artist and audience and transform every monologue into a conversation – of the sort that material this good and delivered this well is bound to sustain, long after the lights come down and we walk back out into the night, no longer alone.

“one of the best things staged all season”

Given that it’s covering birth, death and everything in between, it feels as though Theatre Gigante really is putting everything onstage . . . an entire, self-contained reality onstage for roughly one hour’s time … one of the best things to get staged all season.

Upcoming Shows

Based on Franz Kafka’s novella by the same title, Gigante’s METAMORPHOSIS explores the deep and disturbing effects of alienation, as it relates
the bizarre story of Gregor Samsa, who one morning wakes up
finding himself turned into a monstrous, verminous bug.

Isabelle Kralj’s heightened cartoon-like interpretation, told through
text, music and movement, dances along the edge of horror and humor.
