The Tulsa Community College Theatre Department put on a production of James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter on February 26th -28th and on Sunday March 6th.

Everyone else’s costume I thought all blended nicely together and fit the time period but Alias’ purple dress and her 6 inch heels stood out so much. Her costume was so outrageous, I felt that it took away from the scenes that she was in while wearing it because it was so distracting and difference from everything else going on. Her shoes especially were way too contemporary to fit with everything else, but her other costume, a white dress with a green robe, blended really well and fit the time period. The other thing that I did not was Jonah Fujikawa’s character Phillip, I felt like at times he did not really know what he was saying. He had all of his lines memorized but the way he said them just seemed lost at times. One of the things I really enjoyed about the play was Charles Davis’s character, John.
