Rep's garage sale returns
The city's most entertaining garage sale returns Saturday with the Milwaukee Rep's annual spring clean-out of stuff we have seen onstage. The Rep's prop and costume departments have combed through their storage spaces, pulling hats, shoes, clothing, furniture, light fixtures and a trove of curiosities to put on sale.
Perhaps the most unusual item is the two-person football blocking sled used in the company's production of "Lombardi" last fall. A life-sized stuffed tiger from "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)" and medieval stocks from "King Lear" are also slated to be sold.
The California king-sized industrial bed onstage in the Rep's current production of "Othello" is on the market, but it won't be available for pickup until after the show closes next month.
Collectable period costumes and contemporary fashions will also be available.
The garage sale will be held in the Rep's paint shop from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Follow the signs at the company's box office in the lobby of the Milwaukee Center. Payment must be made by cash or check.
