Play-ing Around


This summer, through a mysterious series of events, I fell back into the world of making and/or sourcing costumes for Theatre.  Since then I’ve costumed a total of 3 shows.

The first show was Lend Me a Tenor, by Ken Ludwig.  The second was You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, by Clark Gesner (inspired of course by Charles Schultz), and the third was The Caucasian Chalk Circle, by Bertholt Brecht.

Without giving too much away, it is a fun play, and there are 2 Otello’s on stage at once, and there are plenty of fun scenes involving various states of undress, and a dress like the Chrysler Building.  Since it’s no longer playing, perhaps I should tell you more, but instead, I’ll just refer you to my photos on Flickr.

The photo in this shows the denouement in which the whole cast is on stage and all the events become clear to some and muddy to others.

Director and Designer Laura Bird, other crew, let me know if you want a plug!
