Rick Cleveland cut his teeth as a playwright working in Chicago – he went on to big things, like winning an Emmy for his writing on the political drama, The West Wing.  Later it was the TV series Six Feet Under, and more recently, the new political drama House of Cards.

Despite his success on the small screen, Cleveland’s latest work combines his interest in Presidential politics with his love for writing for the stage.

When actors Jonathan Daly, Jim Pickering, and Richard Halverson came over to the studio to talk with us about the Milwaukee Rep’s production of Harvey, we knew we were in for a lot of fun. We weren’t disappointed.

You may have read Homer's "The Iliad" in high school, but you've never seen it quite like this: as an atmospheric one-man play exploring humanity's relationship with war.

Government shutdowns and debt ceiling debates aside, attaining the “American dream” remains a goal for people of all political stripes in this country.

Props Properly Placed

Mar 6, 2009

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.
