Join us for Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen. and add some glamour to the last day of 2012!
Here's the description from the website: "Katharine Hepburn knew the importance of costume in defining character and drawing the audience into a story. She had a sure sense of what would work for her. Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen includes costumes Katharine Hepburn kept in her personal collection of performance clothes, wardrobe which she wore for publicity, and examples of “rebel chic” from her casual and rehearsal wear. Augmented with film still, posters and playbills, the exhibition spans her long career in theater, film and television. Wonderful costume designers are represented with stage costumes by Valentina, Howard Greer, Cecil Beaton, and Jane Greenwood, as well as film costumes by Walter Plunkett, Irene, Muriel King, and Margaret Furse. The Lincoln Center presentation will also include costume research, sketches and comments from Hepburn’s correspondence, scripts and notebooks in the Katharine Hepburn Papers, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts."
How to meet us: The exhibit is in the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, located in Lincoln Center between the Met Opera House and the Vivian Beaumont Theater. Once you enter the building, you need to pass by the usual guard. Proceed towards the circulation desk; we'll be near there T 12:30pm . I will be holding my hand-scrawled MEETUP sign. If you're late, ask the guard to direct you to the Katharine Hepburn exhibit.
