Designing Born Yesterday

Explore how MTC brought 1940s glamour to life on stage in Born Yesterday.

Welcome to the 1940s, where glamour and prosperity mask the dark side of politics in Washington DC. Our first show of 2017, Born Yesterday, presents mid-century America in all its lavish, post-war glory. There’s an economic boom and the evidence of this lies most plainly in the dresses of the day.

In the video above, we speak to Set and Costume Designer Dale Ferguson, and Design Assistant & Buyer, Sophie Woodward, about bringing the 1940s glamour to life on stage.
