Clue Milwaukee Marcus Center

Marcus Performing Arts Center

The Marcus Center presents the murder mystery/comedy Clue March 12-17, and the hilarious and tender-hearted Shrek: the Musical at 7:30pm March 22 and 2pm March 23. 

Clue, part of the Johnson Financial Group Broadway series, is inspired by the cult 1985 movie and popular board game and a classic “whodunit” with more than a few laughs. Six enigmatic guests gather at Boddy Manor for a night of murder and blackmail–leaving audiences guessing the identity of the perpetrator.

Shrek is based on the DreamWorks animated film about an ogre’s memorable journey and the colorful characters he meets along the way, including a smart-aleck donkey and a sassy princess. The Tony-Award-winning musical is a crowd-pleaser for all ages and features songs by Jeanine Tesori (Kimberly Akimbo; Caroline, or Change), and a book by David Lindsay-Abaire (Kimberly Akimbo).

Purchase tickets at MarcusCenter.org, or by phone at (414) 273-7206. Groups of 10 and more are eligible for a discount–call (414) 273-7207 for more information.
