The main purpose for the trip of course was to marvel at Corey’s costuming of Othello. This was her Senior Thesis Project. The Moor was intimidating in his fur-collared cloak, featuring epaulettes of eagle claws and green leather scales, Desdemona was luminous in burgundy silk and velvet, Iago oozed just the right amount of slime in his Nazi Youth-colored military garb – breathtaking all the way around. Unfortunately, even the lovely costumes didn’t keep everyone from getting killed in the end – those tragedies always leave me wondering if we couldn’t just once have a Do Over for the plot of the final chapter. Hopefully I’ll be able to capture some more of the costumes and characters soon.
