(MILWAUKEE, WI – February 6, 2019) – The Miller High Life Theatre and R.E.C. are proud to present the one-man play McGUIRE, about renowned Marquette University basketball coach Al McGuire, in the Miller High Life Theatre’s Plankinton Hall for 8 performances, March 5-10.

AL MCGUIRE was more than a coach, more than a commentator, and for many people he was an inspiration. Written by the legendary broadcaster DICK ENBERG, this play based on stories and friendship from a longtime partnership depicts why the philosophy of this unique character had such an important and lasting impact on so many.  Starring Tony Award®-winning actor, and Milwaukee native ANTHONY CRIVELLO, audience members are able to witness an intimate, up close and personal look into a story that transcends basketball.  This one man theatrical performance written as a tribute to a great friend and partner intricately weaves the fascinating story and uncommonly funny wisdom of Al McGuire as he ascended from Rockaway, Queens, NY bartender to college basketball legend.
