Of kurtas, entaris and kuffis

   As we slog our way through the multitude of costume pieces for the upcoming production of Arabian Nights, I wish  I spoke Persian.  Then I could stop using words which are really describing Turkish or Indian garments.  I also wish more of our students were getting their shop hours done so this entire show does not need to be built by the shop manager and me.
    The fabrics on this show are such a joy to work with - lots of colours and textures.  I would like a bit more time to focus on the hats and such, but things like that tend to be pushed towards the back of the line on these shows.
     I have to go cut out a garment for a fitting tomorrow morning.  By the way - we open Nov. 10, so come and see the play.  It's a good one!

  1. Whose Arabian Nights are you doing?

    We're remounting the Mary Zimmerman version that we did a few years back. I'm sort of happy, because I was unable to see the show due to a death in the family. And I'm sort of miserable, since the scheduling of this show could not come at a worse time.
