Not very sensible Sense and Sensibility

The Dashwood sisters unhappily encounter the Steele sisters at a party in London

Like many schools, colleges, and professional companies around the globe we have had the misfortune of canceling our last production of the season, Macbeth, before its completion. To comfort myself I am trying to concentrate on our most recent and highly successful and enjoyable production of Kate Hamill’s stage adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. My good friend and colleague, Chris Kauffman, adeptly directed a stellar cast of Gettysburg college students and wrangled us designers to handily create a truly beautiful show that has become the best show I have worked on so far. It pushed me to the limits both costuming and painting-wise and I was never so proud to be so exhausted. I dearly hope it will not be the last show we ever do but, if it unthinkably must be, what a fitting end to the most amazing job I could ever imagine.

I have posted a few more photos and the original designs on the costume page if you are interested.
