UP CLOSE (But Not Too Close) with John McGivern
ENJOY A SAFE, MASKED & SOCIALLY DISTANCED Theater Experience
The shows have been rescheduled, for socially-distanced audiences, to the following dates in February and March 2021 and will take on a slightly different theme as UP CLOSE (but not too close) with John McGivern. The shows will still include a fresh mix of old and new tales, from John’s childhood days on Milwaukee’s Eastside to recent events in the midst of the pandemic.
Please hang on to your tickets as they will be honored at the new show date.
If you purchased a pre-paid parking pass, your parking pass will also remain valid for the new date.
The Pabst Theater Group will continue to monitor public health updates and follow guidelines from the City of Milwaukee health officials to determine the right time to welcome the public back safely. The health and safety of staff and patrons remains the top priority.
Please email the Pabst Theater Box Office at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
In a special engagement of live shows with a socially-distanced audience, UP CLOSE (but not too close) with John McGivern will serve up a fresh mix of old and new tales, from John’s childhood days on Milwaukee’s Eastside to recent events in the midst of the pandemic.
