Dangerous Liaisons

Yes. Those kinds. Those kinds of relationships. We make jokes about shades of gray. We live in a society immersed in sex, and sexual innuendo. Can we learn something from French mores of the 1700s? High court, high class, intrigue, seduction, revenge, power, and dare I say love, all come into play. And the play is Dangerous Liaisons brought to us by the UWM Peck School of the Arts Theatre main stage production this November.

 NORTHERN LIGHTS – Local musician and producer Paul Setser recently collaborated with Currents publisher Vince Bushell and two UWM students, Ulrike Galasinski and Angel Howman, to produce “Northern Lights,” a halfhour science fiction radio play written in the late 1940s. In addition to directing the talent, adding sound effects, and editing the audio, Setser also provided the original music throughout the show. It’s available on the Riverwest Currents website as a free MP3 download. Go to and click on the “Catching the Wooly Bear by its Tale” article link and follow the directions from there.
