Dial M For Murder: Costumes

by Northlight Theatre


Dial M For Murder costume designer Raquel Adorno says she drew inspiration from the 1950s and Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic films for this production. “I love the Hitchcock film adaptation from the 1950s. And I found this adaptation to be really compelling,” she says. When asked about her contribution to the overall atmosphere and mood of the production, Adorno revealed her inspiration from Hitchcock’s aesthetic, aiming to use color to build suspense and influence the psyche, aligning with the play’s suspenseful and dramatic storyline. Notably, she drew inspiration from Hitchcock’s film, especially a striking red gown. Ultimately, Adorno hopes that the audience will connect more deeply with the characters and the period through her costume designs.
