Goodman Costume Sale ... Just in Time for Halloween

By Margaret Lyons in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 19, 2007 2:26PM


Looking for a woolly mammoth costume? Ha! Does the pope shit in the woods? Of course you are. Then you're in luck: Tomorrow's the Goodman Theatre's costume sale, and believe it or not, there is indeed a woolly mammoth up for grabs. The Snuffleupagus-esque get-up is from the Goodman's 1992 production of The Skin of Our Teeth, as is a dinosaur costume (also available!). No word on how crusty/not crusty the 15-year-old outfit is, but we're guessing it's leaning toward the crusty side of things.

Other costumes for sale are from Gallileo Galilei (lush 16th/17th century pieces), The Odyssey, colorful gowns from Mirror of the Invisible World, turn-of-the-last-century frocks and headdresses from The Dreams of Sarah Breedlove, and what the Goodman is calling "over-sized heads from The Light in the Piazza" that never appeared on stage.

The sale is cash-only, from 9 a.m.–2 p.m. at the Goodman, 170 N. Dearborn St.
