It is really wonderful to watch costumes evolve from the page to fittings to the actual stage. But it is an evolution with many “hand-offs”.
And long before my costume crew joined the “Odyssey” I had the production’s design team –the directors and the set and lighting designers–to talk with and bounce ideas off of. Each of these conversations help round out an overall look for a production. (It’s like a big, layer cake that get’s yummier as you drop your fork down!)
To me, this is what makes theater a yummy treat for the eyes, ears and heart!
