In this episode Daphne Gill (Noble Science and Engineering Library Manager) meets with Child Drama Collection Curator Katherine Krzys and takes a peek into the collection of stage costumes from designer Irene Corey.
Irene literally changed the face of costume and makeup design. For over 50 years she designed costumes, sets and makeup for shows as varied as theater classics to theme park characters. We would not have seen Lion King or Cats on Broadway without her initial animal makeup and costume work. Irene first became nationally known for the "Book of Job" in the 50's. She also designed the costumes for the television show BARNEY and came up with his trademark purple color.
Join us and see the costumes and design materials representing from Irene's entire theatrical career Kathy collected.
The Irene Corey Collection is part of the Child Drama Collection, the largest repository in the world documenting the international history of children's theatre back to the sixteenth century.
