UW-Milwaukee regroups after millions in damage from arts complex blaze Last Saturday was the biggest talent showcase of the semester for the Peck School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The UWM Opera Theatre and Symphony Orchestra collaborated on a performance of the opera "La Perichole." And a Kenilworth Open Studios event drew more than 1,000 people for art exhibitions and film screenings; live music, theater and dance performances; demonstrations and hands-on activities.

I know that a couple of us have been joking around aboit this incident with Karherine, who's from Wisconsin, but id like to take it seriously. The loss of a theatre is always a tragic event, if only for the memories of a building in which one has worked and toiled to get shows up, a building in which collaboration and friendships have grown. It is doubly as heartbreaking when it is a university theater, because it robs all of the students of their capacity to learn, and it robs an entire campus of their theatre. I'm not sure what the steps are to rebuild and carry on after such a tragic event, but I do know that there is a reason we put so much time into fireproofing everything on stage, there is a reason we are so careful about fire. I honestly don't know what I would do if Purnell burned down.
