"Schlitz Happened! An Old Milwaukee Blatz From The Pabst" Debuts At Potawatomi's Northern Lights Theater

MILWAUKEE – Nationally touring stand-up comedian Dobie Maxwell will highlight the life of a Milwaukeean and celebrate the city’s storied past in “Schlitz Happened! An Old Milwaukee Blatz From The Pabst,” kicking off in the Northern Lights Theater Saturday, April 6, and playing each Saturday through the month.

The one-person show centers on the distinct culture and modern history of Milwaukee – known nationally as the home of Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley. But for those who hail from “Brew Town,” and know its inner workings, the city is so much more – from its strong German and Polish roots and blue-collar mentality, to long-standing institutions like the Friday night fish fry and bowling leagues.


Maxwell will recount the memories of his Milwaukee childhood in two nightly shows at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., each Saturday in April. Tickets are available for $20 or free with a Fire Keeper’s Club card at the Northern Lights Theater Box Office. Call the theater box office at (414) 847-7922 or www.paysbig.com for ticket availability. Tickets are also available at Ticketmaster.com, or by calling (800) 745-3000. Must be 21 and over.
