Anyone Have a Lion Costume?


I’m playing the part of the Lion in a Project Shaw reading of Androcles and the Lion, and I need something scary and animalistic to wear (aside from my usual ensembles, that is).

This could be my big break.

I’m hoping Julie Taymor catches me in all my lionine glory and casts me in her show–the one that isn’t Spider-Man, I mean.

And there’s a whole other opportunity here. The reading has been cast with all critics and journos like myself, so this is my chance to roar my way back to king of the jungle.

But wait! I just got my script and instructions and it says to just wear black and not to try to approximate a costume!

Anyone have anything black?
