The Importance of Being Sarah

My wife Sarah has been working her tail off to make spectacular costumes for The Importance of Being Earnest. They are quite stunning and I can't wait to see them on stage in the context of the play. I'm happy to see that she's getting some attention for her work. Here's part of an article from the Queen Anne News. (Full article here)

"Costumes by Sarah Burch Gordon are beautiful and wonderfully matched to the characters. The male leads are vested, jewel or flower bedecked dandies, the height of elegance for poseurs of the period. Lady Bracknell epitomizes upper class respectability and fashion with sumptuously colored, layered silk dresses that give testimony to her money as well as her class. Her hats are minor masterworks, with whole birds, feathers and a variety of other ornamental enhancements. And young Cecily is a delectable, frothy pink, confection ... perfectly attired for her character."

All too often, only the direction, acting and scene work is lauded in the local reviews. It's nice to see Sarah get some deserved praise. She is uber-talented. Way to go, baby!
