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 was a success. The April/May campaign is up and running. For more information on how you can help support, visit the April/May Kickstarter page.
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 85 posts as of May 19, The Small Stage is currently funded for another 8 blogs.
