'Verona' Ladies
To Act Bravely
In Farthingales
The women in the cast of Play
Production's "Two Gentlemen of Ve-
rona" are being very, very brave.
They have learned that under their
soft, shining brocaded gowns they
must each wear a farthingale. The
farthingale, that Elizabethan affront
to feminine beauty, is a type of hoop
that was designed to make Tudor
ladies look tiny in the waist-in com-
James Doll's costumes have caugnt
the Italiente-Elizabethan spirit of
Shakespeare's romantic comedy with-,
out sacrificing appeal to the modern
eye. Julia, the gentle heroine of the
play, wears a gown of robin's egg'
blue satiny damask with huge leg o'-
mutton sleeves banded vertically with
starched lace ruffles. Sylvia wears
gleaming gold brocade, and all of
the women of the cast wear those
flattering little Mary Stuart caps
that sweep to a point on the fore-
head and are as romantic and fem-
inine as a widow's peak.
Since Elizabethan men wore pump-
kin breeches which resemble the gym
bloomers you wore in the fourth
grade track-meet, Julia's last act
costume is as flattering as her first,
and much more comfortable. She
wears doublet and hose of white
moire banded with blue and fushia
ribbons and a hat with a feather
that might be seen on State Street.

So says Harper's Bazaar, and Jacobson's heartily
agrees with them. And the girls, bless them, are
insisting upon it. 'In a world given over to the
functional, we crusade for the 'gay, the pretty.
In the midst of discussions of social conscious-
ness, we pause to scold the laundress about the
lack of starch in our petticoat fr-ills. It's the
prettiest, most charming season in years and
we're all for it.
