From Page to Stage: Costumes to Character
Introducing to you the leading ladies of Shakespeare’s Women
Rose Cory & Raeleigh Aberg
Over the past two weeks leading up to the opening of Shakespeare’s Women we have taken to our social media to introduce some of the Bard’s greatest female roles and the great women who are playing them on our stage – our Phoenix Theatre #LeadingLadies.
Take a look through the gallery to see all of the great women featured on stage. With International Women’s Day just a week or so ago on March 8, this show offers everyone a great opportunity to celebrate great women on stage
Also featured are the concept drawings of Costume Designer Mallory Goodman so you can compare them to the finished product on the stage (with thanks to our production photographer Dean Kalyan).
Shakespeare’s Women runs in-person from March 17 – 26, 2022 with three online streamed performances from March 24 – 26. Check out more show details and tickets.
