Whether we knew it or not, for the past thirty years, Giva Taylor has shaped much of what we’ve seen on area stages – probably more than anyone else. So for Taylor’s newest show — ‘Three Sisters’ at the Undermain Theatre — the Artist Spotlight visited a rehearsal and costume fitting.
It was only fitting. ‘Three Sisters’ may be Taylor’s last show as a costume designer.
It looks as though the Russian Army has camped out in the Undermain Theatre’s basement space. Military hats and leather boots are in piles. The walls are lined with racks and racks of old-fashioned shawls, blouses and army coats. With the cafe counter, wine bar, the chairs and actors’ belongings everywhere, there’s barely room to stand, let alone squeeze by.
