Press & Reviews

Things That Go Ding! Gallery


  • "Things That Go Ding!" is a variety show in the best sense of the word, showcasing the ridiculous talent of three Milwaukee performers who are allowed to do the things they do best and loving every minute of it.
  • It's a virtuoso evening for the percussionist Lorenz, who races through the thicket of marimbas, drums, cymbals, gongs, chimes, bells, duck calls and gewgaws for the right note at the right time.
