May 8, 2020. This Week: The construction of the Cabot Theatre. Modeled after an 18th-century French opera house, the building of the Cabot began in 1992 and required more than 10 designers to create the intricate details on the ceiling, balconies and proscenium arch. The balcony façade incorporates images of the Nine Muses and their attributes, including History, Poetry and Music. The Cabot ceiling features images of Milwaukee landmarks including City Hall, St. John’s Cathedral and Skylight's old building on Jefferson Street. The ceiling also highlights former Skylight Artistic Director Chas Rader-Shieber and co-chair of the building campaign and former Managing Director Colin Cabot.

May 5, 2020. This Week: Watch this CBS interview with Colin Cabot, Skylight's former Managing Director, who talked about the opening of the Cabot Theatre and Skylight's first 50 years. 

April 24, 2020. This week: CBS Sunday Morning's Mike Strehlow did a segment on our 60 years that included an interview with Broadway star Kate Baldwin, who was in town to perform at Skylight's 60th anniversary gala, and Skylight Music Theatre Artistic Director Michael Unger, who had just started his first week on the job.
