By GRACE MILLER
The radical change of ideas of
beauty in line, color and design is
among the most important that faces
the designer of clothes for the stage.
The silhouette of the woman of 1929
is an excellent example of this diffi-
culty, Mrs. Emma Mellencamp, who
is responsible for the costumes in
Play Production's current offering,
"Much Ado About Nothing," points
Ih Elizabethan times the much
longed-for figure was cone-shaped
from the waist up. Flat steel con-
trivances were worn to get the de-
siredi effect. To a 1941 audience a
leading lady dressed in this manner
would appear ridiculous, and detract
enormously from the degree in which
the audience enters into the mood
of the story.
Dress Must Be Modified
For this reason subtle modifica-
tions of dress must be carried out.
The characters of the people por-
trayed can be suggested by their
clothes to a greater extent than is
usually appreciated. For example,
Hero, who is quite simple and sweet,
will appear in pale blue, of a soft
material, which, while preserving the
general lines of the period, is not
quite as stiff as most of the costumes.
A heavy red pearl-studded dress
will be worn by Ada McFarland as
Beatrice, who had a sharp, clever wit.
Nothing retiring about either cos-
tume or character. Margaret, the
chamber-maid, will appear in blatant
purple, which indicates the coarser!
