Hey everyone! I have a quick question:
I’m a professional actor, and I’m considering doing a one-man show in which I’ll be portraying multiple, real-life characters of varying ages, ethnicities, races, religious backgrounds and potentially, different genders. Well, the likelihood is that I’d only be portraying one woman. The piece is a historical piece – not a comedy – and it’s based on a historical event that happened in the United States back in the 90’s. Again, the people that I’d be POTENTIALLY portraying would be real people – all of whom are still alive. So, these would not be caricatures or campy satire. On the contrary, they would be portrayed in “truth” - complete with accents, prosthetics and clothing. So in lieu of Deuteronomy 22:5, would I be in violation to wear the woman’s actual clothing - complete with wig, makeup, etc - in accurate portrayal of this person within a play? Why or why not?
Thanks, in advance!
