Burning Men, Kissing Priests and Dressing Angels

I love my work and here's why: on Friday, I'm watching a burning man come out on stage at the Theater Basel, last weekend I kissed a priest after Doubt and now for Semi-circle's Rent I get to dress a man in women's clothes.  Introducing Angel. 
Angel is played by Julian David and her character says a lot of wonderful things in Rent, but possibly the one line that jumps out at the costumer in me is said by Maureen, "You'd find an old tablecloth on the street and make a dress--and next year, sure enough-they'd be mass producing them... "  Oh! That never happened to me.

Yours, cutting up flags, Santa suits and curtains again,
Mrs Crocodile
