PETTIS ON STAGE
Ian provides this
luscious stage scene from a
German production entitled Conny
"I thought that you might like this, which comes from the English National Opera's website advertising a production of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Gondoliers (which is on in London in March). It would appear that it is being done as if in the 1950's rather than the 1890's."
"The picture, from a local newspaper, is from a 2004 play in San Diego entitled I Love You - You're Perfect - Now Change. The woman in this particular scene is singing 'Always a Bridesmaid, Never A Bride' and is wearing a bright pink satin bridesmaids dress (note the large bow on the bodice) with a very full petticoat sticking out all around.
All in all, a very nice picture!"

amazingly frou-frou stuff here. I've found some rather good
Girls Aloud stuff from Smash Hits
Party in November 2005, performing Biology (again) -
picturess below (click to enlarge), and a poor-ish vidclip of the same live performance (all in the dresses, unlike the video):"
"I went to seeTristan and Yseult at the West Yorkshire
Playhouse (England) last night (in November 2005). The two women were wearing
well- petti'd skirts for most of the evening and there was plenty of
dancing too! The only "decent" picture from their web site
was this one

Lamour Gwendoline, burlesque performer.
A Walk in the Park
We encounter Miss Lamour taking a saunter in the park in her splendid walking dress, a ravishing duck egg blue confection with baby pink trimming, studded with thousands of hand placed Swarovski crystals, complete with matching parasol! She performs a playful strip tease out of her gorgeous gown and teases us with an enchanting parasol dance.
Den Nationale Scene (The National
Venue of Theatre, in Bergen) is Norway's oldest permanent theatre with
roots dating back to
Det Norske Theater founded in 1850 by the Norwegian violinist Ole Bull.
"I am not sure how long this New York Times link will stay available. There is a slide show with some pictures from a Broadway production of The Pajama Game (female lead Kelli O'Hara). While there are no grand and glorious petticoat views, since the story is set in the 50s, there are some tasteful dresses and skirts with petticoats beneath, some of which are displayed in the audio slide show. I have attached four screen shots from the slide show."

"If you are in the mood for
exposure of mid-Victorian pettis, try the Broadway production of
Little Women on Youtube. The song
'Take A Chance On Me,' especially, has Jo whirl her skirt around quite a bit in some interesting ways. It just fascinates me how so
much could have been done in those dresses...sigh..."
