Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

When to go Greek: A stratagem of mythical costuming for Eurydice
by DeScalo, Carlene, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 29; 10102581
Abstract (Summary)

The costume design for California State University at Long Beach’s Spring 2015 produc- tion of Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl displays the influence of Grecian myth on the characters. The costumes show which characters have been influenced more so by the mythology and those that have been influenced by other time periods. As the Stones have the strongest connection to the Grecian roots, they are the main focus of the paper. Reviews of past productions, articles, and literary sources based in Grecian myths and legends will display their connection to their Grecian roots.
