AN IDEAL HUSBAND costume sketches by Meg Neville
The corsetless, Klimt-inspired Viennese couture of the villainess Mrs. Cheveley. (Portrayed by Stacy Ross.)
The very epitome of Oscar Wilde's dandy: Lord Goring (portrayed by Elijah Alexander).
"An ideal husband!" exclaims the young Mabel Chiltern (played by Sarah Nealis). "Oh, I don't think I should like that. It sounds like something in the next world." And so are our spunky, truth-speaking heroine's costumes--flower-laden, like something from the next world (if the next world were a round-the-clock over-the-top garden party).
How proper can you be? Ask Sir Robert Chiltern! (Portrayed by Michael Butler.)
Oh, wait! I'm wrong! Ask Lord Caversham! (Played by L. Peter Callender.)
