Abby Rose Morris
This week, Abby shares her take on the changes in cultural attitudes toward fatness in the last 2 decades and their impact on Millennials and Zoomers (0:44). Then she is joined by Mallory Kidd (08:02), a wardrobe, hair, and make-up technician and podcaster who has worked on and off Broadway as well as regionally. Mallory shares her best tips for how actors can effectively communicate with costumers, and how costumers can be more accommodating of actors in larger bodies. They also discuss shopping with your straight size friends, Gilmore Girls, lifts (the dance kind, not British elevators), and the lack of fat representation in Disney movies.
