The Milwaukee Rep Theatre is usually known for off-beat yet compelling theatrical productions. My wife took part in their summer program this past July and my in-laws are contributors. However, my experience of the Rep has been lackluster, dangerous, and disappointing.
If it's your first time at the Rep, the best advice I can give you is, watch your step! There are no running lights along the wide and chunky stairs leading up into the seating areas in the smaller theatres. Several people stumbled and fell up and down the stairs (in the pitch dark) at my wife's showcase and it was a wonder that they weren't seriously hurt.
In addition, the productions director was unfriendly and not very helpful when our family was trying to find the correct theatre door.
Overall, I would skip any production at the Rep and go instead to Ziedler Hall.
