broadminded presents: CHEERS!
Broadminded, Milwaukee’s premiere all-female sketch comedy group, announces its latest show: Cheers at the Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave (Lower Level of the Grand Avenue Mall), Milwaukee at 7:30 pm on November 15, 16, 22 and 23, 2019. This night of original sketch comedy will explore all sorts of cheers at company parties, family dinners, pep rallies, and of course, Care-a-Lot.
Cheers is the 23rd original sketch comedy by the broads, and it seems odd that it’s taken this long to pick such an alcohol-centric theme. Why did they finally choose that theme? “I wanted to use our pom-pons again,” notes Anne Graff LaDisa. “I’m trying to write-off my vacation to London,” adds Stacy Babl. “I thought it was pom-pom,” said Melissa Kingston. “Shut up and pour me more rosé,” said Megan McGee. “Cheers!”
Broadminded has been captivating audiences since 2006 with sketches featuring minimal costuming and a plethora of backwards hats. And what do critics say?
