Saturday, April 16, 2016

by Dave Begel, OnMilwaukee; There are so many different ways to make an audience laugh during a theatrical production: sarcasm, slapstick, wild farce, slamming doors, identity switches and poking fun at serious topics. One of the most difficult is the drunk scene when it's played for laughs. For a master class on how to put a drunk scene on stage, let me recommend "Fallen Angels," the Noel Coward drawing room comedy that opened Friday night at Milwaukee Chamber Theatre.
