Shilling for my show:

I'm the costumer for a show opening tomorrow: T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral. It is about the murder of Thomas Beckett and is being performed *in* St Mary's cathedral downtown. Which is just an awesome setting for this story! To highlight the timelessness of Beckett's story the director's vision was to span the centuries costume-wise (what do you mean I can't just put everyone in T-tunics?!?!?! :) ). I think it works tho, and if I do say so myself it has created some very effective imagery. More info on dates, times, etc. may be found here: http://blessedthomas.blogspot.com/

Here are a couple of pics of the costumes from the first costume check. Behind cut.....
First pic is the four knights that came to murder Beckett. No Himself is not in the show, he was standing in for one of the actors who couldn't be there so we could still see all the costumes together.


And yes, that is a man in tights. You think I would pass up the opportunity :)?

Second is the same four as the 'temptors' of Beckett in the first act. Yes, that is Devon in the lt blue shirt but we ended up switching it out to a red one. SCA-folk may recognize Logan Munro from the Champagne Players in the confederate uniform.



Then a few of the Women of Canterbury who are the chorus for the story



Note to self; need to be sure and get a pic of the cope and mitre.....


Come and see it :)!
