‘Chesapeake’

Matthew Reddin, Contributing writer

It technically only takes one person to tell a story, but most plays tend to throw at least two or three actors onstage. Not Chesapeake, the one-man show by Lee Blessing at In Tandem Theatre, 628 N. Tenth St., Milwaukee. It’s the story of a conservative senator trying to obliterate the National Endowment for the Arts, a gay artist hunting for a way to stop him, and the senator’s beloved dog who becomes a pawn in their war. All this is told by one performer — the talented Matt Daniels, a regular at In Tandem. Tickets are $25, $23 for students and seniors. Call 414-271-1371 or visit intandemtheatre.org.
