I've posted the student designs side-by-side with the (almost) finished costumes on my personal blog--you can see them here. The photos there and below were taken at dress rehearsal. Since then, we've added the white buckle to Maggie's day-dress, completed the striped add-ons for Max's Otello costume, repaired the evening dresses to fit better, and otherwise adjusted the costumes as needed.
The show is funny and fabulous, and the costumes fit the show perfectly!
There is one more show--tonight (Sunday, 2/14/2010) at 7 PM at Charley's PIC.
Maggie explains her need to fling to Max.
Tito Merelli arrives--with his wife, Maria.
