Behind the Seams: Dressing Up August Wilson’s Plays


In Penumbra Theatre's recent production of “Jitney” by August Wilson, the cast was dressed in costumes that evoked the 1970s and conveyed aspects of their characters. Learn more about the production from costume designer Mathew LeFebvre. See original sketches and join a conversation about how clothes evoke a time period, a mood, enliven a character and advance the action. This program begins with a social hour and time to tour the "Penumbra Theatre at 40" exhibit; LeFebre’s talk will begin at 7 pm.
