On this episode, we pull back the curtain and hear from the Costume Designer for THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA, Edina Hiser. There are a LOT of costumes in this production, and Edina gives us the insights into the symbolism she embeds in the design, the anatomy of a quick change – since there are so many! – how she is able to engineer costumes to function efficiently yet not alter their authenticity, and the joy she gets from helping performers become more comfortable with their body images through well designed costumes.
Edina Hiser graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in theatre design, and she is now the Resident Costume Designer for the Thornton School of Music at USC. As a designer, she is bold, colorful, and collaborative, with a passion for storytelling and a talent for creative problem-solving.
