Park Square's proscenium theater is decked out like a fashion runway with all the lights and sparkles necessary. In a show about fashion, the costumes need to be spot on, and they are. Costume designers Jan Jacobsen and dancer Rebecca Abroe (who saves the best costume for herself - a cute comfy denim jumpsuit that I want) clothe the dancers in an array of fabulous outfits that also allow them to move beautifully. Sequined black shorts with bold colored jackets, sporty looks, chic black and white, each fashion show is better than the last.
Collide's fabulous, modern, feminist take on The Picture of Dorian Gray continues through April 7. It's a great way to get a little dance with your theater.
