As the wall text points out, the variety of costumes shows the diversity of Jewish communities across centuries and around the globe. And in many cases, “the clothes worn by Jews were similar or even identical to those worn by their non-Jewish neighbors.”. But it is “the history and the language of Jewish clothing in all its complexity” that is the heart of the exhibit, which is organized by curator Heidi Rabben. Social and political developments, turmoil and celebrations, plus the issues of cultural codes and self-expression play out in virtually every display.

Another reason this production works well is Hoover’s and technical director Robert Christiansen’s creative weaving of one scene into the next almost seamlessly. Margaret Toomey’s costumes are equally impressive, especially the fine military uniforms worn by Juan Peron (a thoughtful but rather bland Anthony Bernal) and his men, as well as the full range of outfits for Malone (a simple peasant dress in the first scene, furs and jewels later, culminating in a gorgeous white ensemble for Evita when her husband is inaugurated as Argentina’s president). Later, before heading out on what was called the “Rainbow Tour” of European countries to meet various heads of state, Malone makes an ingenious costume change onstage while singing “they need to adore me, so Christian Dior me.”.
