A Message from Designer Gail Russell

Posted on July 3, 2020

Ghost Light Chronicles, vol. 9

When you have done as many creative, innovative, and soul searching shows as I have at Capital Stage, and worked in as many costume shops with amazing and talented people, and you are suddenly told to “Go home!”, what does a person do? They tumble into their library/guest room and set up to make MASKS!

May you and your family and friends be healthy and happy during this time of secured shelter.

I look forward to seeing everyone again as soon as soon is.
