Sing-along with Dr. Horrible in Madison, Wisconsin. This event will be held in the Majestic Theatre on February 11th.

Huh.

ETA that I wonder if that post is supposed to be hinting (bunnies) at the other thing they're showing, or if the date is significant, since it's two days before Dollhouse airs.

Unless it's Tabula Rasa, it better be OMWF!!!

Not sure what the 2-11 date would mean b!x(other than reminding me about Dr. Dre's album, The Chronic, "Try to set me up for a 211, f*** around and get caught up in a 187." 211 of course being the police code for armed robbery. Maybe Dane101 is armed and dangerous?)

I guess they don't want to raise any OMWF red flags. Obviously the bunnies comment was total Whedon-code. I love to see guerrilla tactics being employed so the public can watch a musical. Watch out Madison Wisconsin, Fox might send a gaggle of attorneys to come take everyone's three dollar charitable donation/entry fee!
Sounds like fun (not that I'm anywhere near Wisconsin). But the description doesn't explain the "brew" aspect of the event...
I only mentioned the date as the alternative explanation for the mystery extra something they are showing. Meaning, either OMWF (bunnies) or something Dollhouse (the date).
jcs, apparently beer movies are a staple of the Majestic: "...the Majestic also features comedy, themed parties and "Brew n' View" movies from time to time. (Mentioned under The Majestic in the left-sided menu.)
That is an adorable theater.
Do we have any Wisconsin posters?
I've been to the Majestic before, it's a fun theater. There are similar types of theaters in the suburbs of Chicago.
Wow, that's a very nice venue. From the places I used to go to for music events in the Midwest, I was expecting a more old-house-a-bit-crumbly aesthetic.
Simon Yes. Unfortunately, I'm about 4 hours north of Madison, and, although I have a friend who lives there, I'm not entirely sure I can afford to drive down for this.

I just looked at my calendar - nope. Can't take two days off in the middle of the week to drive down, see this, spend the night & drive back.

Fudge! There goes my only chance of seeing it! I'll let her know, though - I'm sure she & my (former) friend from Oshkosh will want to go.

ETA: As long as they're not making bears, everything's good. 'cause I'm not sure they could undo it.

Just for the fun of it, I think I'll pretend I'm going and decide what my costume will be. Let's see...what character wore glasses & had short dark brown hair and dark brown eyes, and was female?

Will there be the Musical Commentary track as well? It rocks! Even better then the songs webcasted..
I went to school in Madison and now live a couple hours north in Appleton. This is SOOOO tempting. Maybe ShadowQuest can pick me up!

Also, the Majestic is a great little theater. I know I saw at least two movies there, but the only one I remember is Orgazmo :D

Edit: Oh yeah, I saw a free sneak-peek of Chasing Amy there too!

Whoo-hoo! Charity Screening of Dr. Horrible!
We are possibly closer to the Wisconsin border than to Chicago, and did drive up to Madison once to see Steve Earle - I should remember this, but I think it's an hour plus a bit drive - so this would be a possibility IF IT WEREN'T IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FRAKKING WEEK. Some of us have to go to work the next day, you know! Yargh.
I'm so I excited! I go to school in Madison. It would be better if it were on a weekend so that some of my non-Madison friends could drive up. I'm already calling people and making plans as I type.
