Veteran Chicago costume designer Patricia Hart died Sunday, April 10, after a long battle with brain cancer. She was 64. Hart was famous in the Off-Loop theater community for her ability to create remarkable costumes on a limited budget, substituting ingenuity and improvisation for money. Her credits include the 1988 cult flick Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Among her local theater clients were Victory Gardens, City Lit, New Tuners, Lifeline, and Next. A 1969 graduate of the Goodman School of Drama, she also taught production design and mask-making at the School of the Art Institute. She's survived by her husband of 43 years, Larry; a son Michael; and her mother, Patricia McIntyre. A memorial service and tribute is being planned for late April or early May, to be hosted by Next Theatre co-founder Harriet Spizziri. Updates will be posted on Larry Hart's Facebook page.
