I tend to over-anthropomorphize things. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not weird about it or anything. I don’t feel sorry for coleslaw in the refrigerator that goes uneaten  as former Milwaukee poet Matt Cook has professed to. I do however, feel bad about stage costumes that get worn for a single run and then lie around in a box somewhere for the rest of eternity. What kind of existence is that for a garment? How many otherwise perfectly nice scarves and flannels are lost in closets somewhere simply because they happened to have the good fortune to appear in a production of Rent? And what of all the vests and tie-dyes that could be doing some good were it not for the fact that they appeared in a recent production of Hair . . . say in Elm Grove for example . . .

So it pleases me to hear that the Sunset Playhouse is hosting a pre-Halloween costume sale.  October 13th – 15th, the Sunset Playhouse will be clearing out some of its costume inventory. The sale will be set-up in the Sunset’s studio theatre. Here are the scheduled hours for the sale:


October 13 (Noon - 6:00pm)

October 14 (Noon - 6:00pm)

October 15 (10am - 4:00pm)

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
