A History of the Theatre Costume Business
A History of the Theatre Costume Business: Creators of Character | Rachel E. Pollock, Triffin I. Morris, Gregory DL Morris
11 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
A History of the Theater Costume Business is the first-ever comprehensive book on the subject, as related by award-winning actors and designers, and firsthand by the drapers, tailors, and craftspeople who make the clothes that dazzle on stage.
Readers will learn how stage clothes are made today, by whom, and how. They will also learn how today’s shops and ateliers arose from the shops and makers who founded the business. This never-before-told story shows that there is as much drama behind the scenes as there is in the performance: famous actors relate their intimate experiences in the fitting room, the glories of gorgeous costumes, and the mortification when things go wrong, while the costume makers explain how famous shows were created with toil, tears, and sweat, and sometimes even a little blood. This is history told by the people who were present at the creation – some of whom are no longer around to tell their own story.
Based on original research and honest reporting, A History of the Theater Costume Business is written for theatre professionals: actors, directors, producers, costume makers, and designers. It is also an excellent resource for all theatergoers who have marveled at the gorgeous dresses and fanciful costumes that create the magic on stage, as well as the next generation of drapers and designers.

It's a month and a day until our book release for A History of the Theatre Costume Business: Creators of Character!

It would be a fantastic help to request the title from your library--I know $35 for a paperback is a lot of money for some folx and library access may be the only option for many potential readers.

Thank you so much for supporting my book!

DISCLAIMER: This review is based on the galley of the book. Also, I'm one of the authors. I did only write a chapter & a 1/2, & this is the first time i've read my coauthors' chapters.

This would be a great bookclub pick for groups interested in theatre, costuming, etc. & a great textbook for a class on this history of where Tony winning designers got their clothes made. This feels like a start to a story only just beginning to be told.

Just started the proof! This is exciting because I have only read the sections of the book that I wrote! I‘m looking forward to learning about what my co-authors wrote.

Our book is on Litsy! So excited!!!

Not sure how to get the listing corrected—I‘m a third co-author, not the primary author. Is there a way to report that?
