I'm raiding the costume room tomorrow, so will have a better idea on what is and is not executable costume-wise, wheee! The actor playing Baptista (Kate and Bianca's father) has his heart set on looking like John Wayne in "The Searchers" — he also requested an eye-patch à la John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn, but that I am nixing. Our stage conditions are going to be a lot darker than the outside and film lights Wayne worked under, plus it's going to raise curiosity from the audience and become a plot point, which the text does not support. Here's what I sketched for him. Directly ripped off from John Wayne, heheh.
