Live theater has been a part of our cultural landscape for decades. For instance, Milwaukee Repertory Theater has been humming along for 54 years. WUWMâ€™s Susan Bence takes us through the back door, as the company prepares â€śPride and Prejudiceâ€ť, the production that opens tonight. She learns the role â€śproper propsâ€ť 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 Repâ€™s properties director.
