Robert Perdziola's costumes for "The School of Night" at the Mark Taper Forum are as intricately crafted as Peter Whelan's 1992 drama about the political, sexual and criminal intrigues surrounding the death of Christopher Marlowe. Perdziola discusses his designs. KIT: This costume for a play-within-the-play is made of a dozen fabrics including three kinds of velvet, silk taffeta, cotton brocade and fake fur. Its meant to be very grand and theatrical, says Perdziola. It is audacious as Marlowe himself is audacious.
