Celebration Quotation – February 4, 2016

Today’s quote is from Much Ado About Nothing:

"He wears his faith but as the fashion of his hat." Much Ado About Nothing; Act I, Scene 1

The photo is of actress Ellen Terry in the role of Beatrice, taken in London 1882.  Terry – the child of an acting family – played her first professional role at the age of 8, and continued to perform right up to her death in 1928 at the age of 80.  Her family legacy in the theatre continued through the work of her daughter Edith Craig, son Edward Gordon Craig, and her grandnephew – Sir John Gielgud.

Isn’t her costume fantastic?!  What color do you think it was?
