Live theater has been a part of our cultural landscape for decades. For instance, Milwaukee Repertory Theater has been humming along for 54 years. WUWM’s Susan Bence takes us through the back door, as the company prepares “Pride and Prejudice”, the production that opens tonight. She learns the role “proper props” play in bringing a show to life.
Pride and Prejudice is an unabashedly romantic story, vintage 19th century England. Jim Guy describes it as a play about books, paper and luggage. He confesses that synopsis might be a bit unorthodox, but Jim is the Rep’s properties director.
