Costume Design Inspirations for “As You Like It”

Costume Designer Mara Blumenfeld, who has worked extensively throughout Chicago and New York, teams up with long-time collaborator Gary Griffin to give the characters of “As You Like It” clean Regency era silhouettes. Here she shares some of the research that inspired her designs. An idyllic Forest of Arden provides the lush backdrop for Shakespeare’s glorious romantic comedy of courtiers, clowns, philosophers and provincials—all bewitched by the trials and triumphs of love. Disguised as a boy, Rosalind escapes the perilous Court—only to find her heart in peril, as she instructs the very man she loves on how best to woo a woman. CST’s acclaimed Associate Artistic Director Gary Griffin stages this tale of mistaken identity and misguided affection, following his wildly successful CST productions of “Private Lives” and “Amadeus.”
