Theatre Threads: The Leading Player’s Circus Couture


Patina Miller as the Leading Player in “Pippin.”

The unnamed but ever-present Leading Player is mystery, wonder and whimsy incarnate. In the recent revival of Pippin, she acts as the ringmaster of a circus spectacle and her modern look certainly incorporates those characteristics by playing with illusion, prints, shapes and color.

Her role as the narrator and commander of the story demands a powerful and intriguing look. The asymmetrical ruffled tailcoat, paired with a collage print skinny jean captures the fun essence of the circus and the eye of an audience. The accessories are also appropriately bold, unique and have their own standalone personality while still being able to flow and empower the look when placed together.
