The kinky Jesus robe rides again

I sure got my money's worth out of this gold ladies dressing robe, AKA "kinky Jesus robe" that I bought in a thrift store five years ago. I've used it in five productions so far, and will no doubt use it again in the second production of SODOM & GOMORRAH: THE ONE MAN SHOW.

In spite of it being a ladies' robe, it was only worn once by a woman on stage, Claire Warden in the world premiere of full-length JULIA & BUDDY, as it was intended, while lounging around her apartment (well technically trapped in her apartment by a faulty door lock while having a panic attack.)

Mike Giorgio wears the robe as "Oliver" in the world premiere of S&G in 2010 -
he isn't supposed to be any particular character, but rather is a narrator
of stories fro the Old Testament (hence the "one-man show")

Doug Rossi wears the "kinky Jesus robe" during rehearsal

as the S&M cosplay (as Jesus, hence the name) attire 
for one of dominatrix Mistress Ilsa's clients for 
the 2011 world premiere of MISTRESS ILSA.  
Mr. Fuzz approves.
