The Small Stage
Small Milwaukee theatre under a generally friendly microscope.
I'm Milwaukee theatre critic Russ Bickerstaff.
In the past 12 years, I've reviewed over 1,000 shows.
I've created this crowdfunded website to preview and review those shows that don't get enough coverage elsewhere.
For every $10 in pledged donations I get, I post another blog.
I will never post more than one blog per day.
If interest drops below $60 per month, the project ends.
This work will be in addition to print reviews that I will continue to write for the Shepherd-Express, which I've been happily committed to working with for over the past 12 years.
Big Thanks from the Small Stage to everyone who has donated over the last four months. The January Campaign was a success. A February/March Kickstarter campaign is up and running. It's recently made minimum. Thanks to everyone who continues to support the page. Check out the February/March Kickstarter page for more info.
Anyone interested in supporting the site in the meantime can do so via Patreon. For more information on that, visit the Small Stage on Patreon.
With 73 posts as of Mar. 19, The Small Stage is currently funded for another 10 blogs.
