CHERNEY: LOOKING AHEAD ON THIS WEEKENDS ARTS AVENUE, WE ARE TALKING TO FIRST STAGE THIS MORNING. JOINING US NOW IS JEFF. HOW ARE YOU DOING? >> I AM WELL. HOW ARE YOU? CHERNEY: GOOD. TELL US ABOUT THE PLAY YOU ARE WORKING ON, IT IS CALLED THE QUEST FOR SOLOMON’S TREASURE. >> IF YOU TOOK NATIONAL TREASURE AND GOONIES AND MESHED THEM TOGETHER, AND CREATED SOMETHING FOR THE DIGITAL FORMAT SET IN MILWAUKEE, THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE. THERE ARE SIX YOUNG PEOPLE WHO DISCOVER A CLUE TO A HIDDEN TREASURE SOMEWHERE IN MILWAUKEE. THEY SET THEM OUT OVER THE COURSE OF SEVEN EPISODES TO TRY AND FIND THE TREASURE. CHERNEY: WHY DO YOU THINK THIS IS PERFECT FOR THE AUDIENCE? >> I THINK THAT, BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ABLE TO REHEARSE AND INVITE AUDIENCES TO US SAFELY, WE WANTED TO CREATE SOMETHING SPECIFICALLY FOR THE DIGITAL PLATFORM. I HOPE WITH THESE SHORT FORM EPISODES THAT FAMILIES WILL TAKE 15 MINUTES EACH WEEK TO COME TOGETHER AND TRULY EXPERIENCE SOMETHING THAT TAKES THEM THROUGH A BIT OF MILWAUKEE’S HISTORY AND THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOODS, DISCOVERING PARTS OF OUR COMMUNITIES STORY THAT THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW. AND HAVE A REAL ADVENTURE. CHERNEY: 2020 HAS THROWN EVERYBODY OFF. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DIFFERENT, EVEN THIS INTERVIEW BEING VIRTUAL. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CONTINUE TO ENGAGE IN THE ARTS? >> I THINK IN THE IMAGINATION, IT IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HELPS LIFT US IN THE HARD TIMES. IT IS LIKE FINDING IN DEBATERS — INNOVATIVE WAYS TO STAY CONNECTED. YOU DIVE INTO HISTORY AND EACH EPISODE WILL CONCLUDE WITH A CLUE. PEOPLE WILL HAVE A WEEK
