I will let you know from the outset that I am biased. I work in a costume shop. What I want to know is why so frequently, in fact almost always, costumes are totally overlooked in reviews? The set is mentioned, the lights are mentioned of course the direction and the acting are mentioned. The costumes however apparently arrive with the actors when they are cast. It is getting old. The costumes and the designs for those costumes are an integral part of the production and deserve to be recognized, especially if every other designer is being named and recognized. Maybe the costumes didn't work in your opinion. That is fine but say so and why. Acknowledge on a more regular basis that a designer and a costume department were involved in creating what you did or did not like that the characters were wearing.

Pippi? What happened to the originality that made CTC a world leader? I guess mediocrity sells.
