Stackner Cabaret Renovation
In the summer of 2018 Milwaukee Rep launched a complete $1.75 million renovation of the Stackner Cabaret. Lead funding, in the amount of $750,000, was provided by former Board President Vince Martin and his wife Jan as well as a $250,000 gift from the Stackner Family Foundation.
Since its opening in 1987, the Stackner Cabaret has been one of Milwaukee’s most in-demand performance venues playing to near capacity crowds for an average of 300 performances a year. The renovation accomplished the following:
+ Increased seating capacity by over 35%
+ Address aging infrastructure issues
+ Better maximized the space both within the theater as well as in the outer lobby
The renovation provided state of the art production capabilities, comfortable new seats and tables, expanded bathrooms for ladies and a new kitchen and bar ready to serve up the most delicious meals and best cocktails.
Given the unique nature of architectural designs completed by Uihlein-Wilson Architects, audience members and longtime Subscribers were able to keep their exact same seats all while experiencing a new world-class venue.
