Welcome to the Boulevard!
The Boulevard Theatre continues to be the “go to” place for the unexpected and entertaining in and around the city of Milwaukee. Boulevard began a cultural eruption when it opened its doors on Kinnickinnic 29 years ago and the overflow of civic improvement and cultural contributions to both the Bay View neighborhood and the greater Milwaukee community continues to provide fertile soil for new, emerging artists.
With so many theatre companies to choose from in Milwaukee, Boulevard Theatre remains a standout for our continued commitment to community, connection and innovative creativity on the stage.

“WHERE THE STREETCAR BENDS THE CORNER“
October 22nd. 23rd, 29th, 30th: 7pm
Plymouth Church, Milwaukee, 2717 E Hampshire St.
A unique double-feature of live theatre! Hop on board for an entertaining double bill. The first stop is WHERE THE STREETCAR BENDS THE CORNER, a tribute to Milwaukees neighborhoods, history, and personalities, circa 1955. Featuring comedy sketches and satirical song, this whimsical tour is devised by Milwaukee actor David Flores and Boulevard Artistic Director Mark Bucher. Then, enjoy a concert version of the Arthur Sullivan’s (music) and B.C. Stephenson’s (lyrics) one-act comic opera THE ZOO. This musical folly portrays love uncaged at a city zoo, in 1850s England–but director David Flores “transfers” the zany plot to Milwaukee in 1955. This affordable caravan of culture occurs at Milwaukee’s Plymouth Church, 2217 East Hampshire-four shows, only (10/22 – 10/30)!
