Bright and pastel colors draw the eye in this cheery farce, set in the 1950s. Crazy costume changes and Shakespeare references abound as the two male leads play down-on-their-luck actors who crossdress to win the hearts (and maybe the fortune) of the female leads.

I also built a lavender taffeta party dress for the character of Stephanie/Jack using a vintage 50’s dress pattern, and sizing it up to fit a 6’3” man with a 40” chest.
