Sketching out a costume design

With Angels in America in previews this week, now’s a great time to take a closer look at the extensive preparation put into this epic two-part production. Let’s start with the costumes!
Check out these early research boards that Costume Designer Jan Chambers created for the character of Belize, played by actor Avery Glymph. Each frame includes a selection of images pulled to give an idea of style and color, plus a hand sketch that brings it all together.
You can explore all of Jan Chambers’ research images and sketches for Angels in America on her Flickr page here. And, now that performances have started, you can see it all put together on stage!
