This is a collection of Photographs from the Broadway Shows I've worked on, Pencil Sketches of Hell's Kitchen, New York City and Broadway Stage Doors.
One of the most joyous gigs was dressing Tony Award Winner Judith Light in LOMBARDI at the Circle in the Square. She was nominated for her performance in this wonderful show. This is a little tribute to her. Enjoy!
Dressing American astronaut, Buzz Aldrin, in a real space suit shipped from NASA for an appearance on the David Letterman Show. I'm wearing the dark, striped shirt and am being assisted by fellow dresser, Grant Barrett as Supervisor Kelly Saxon looks on. We were determined not to slice off the nose of an American hero! After the shot, when we had undressed him from the suit, he turned to Grant and me and said, "You were the replica of authenticity!" We had encased him in that space gear exactly as NASA technicians had done for his actual flight into space!
I think this is after the closing of either Dreamgirls or Legs Diamond.
Matthew Modine, the Nicest Guy in Show Business and myself, backstage at The Miracle Worker at The Circle in the Square, NYC.
Thanks to Terri Purcell for baking...
...my entire wardrobe career up to that point into a great, big cake and fellow cupcakes!
The Lombardi Trophy on display at the Broadway production of LOMBARDI at the Circle in the Square Theater. That is REAL BLING surrounding it, too - Championship Rings!
Speaking of BLING, here I am with Renee Flaming, Miss Fire Island 2009! I was a judge in that year's extravaganza in Cherry Grove. Congrats to all the great contestants, and many thanks to the Ice Palace/Grove Hotel General Manager, Sal Piro, for the honor!

Opening night of SHE LOVES ME with Tommy Femia as Judy Garland and Lauren Bacall as Lauren Bacall.
I think Judy hit a nerve! But, truly, Lauren Bacall was super sweet through the whole thing.
The sign in the alley behind the Music Box Theatre points my way home!
