Closing July 8, 2007
For over 60 years--and some 90 Broadway & Off-Broadway shows--the brilliant costume-designer Alvin Colt has been astonishing audiences. And, sometimes, also the Stars who wear his often unusual & totally flashy costumes!
No other costume-designer has drafted outfits for so many shows. And Colt has given his remarkable collection of costume-sketches and design-plates to the City Museum for its extensive Theatre-Collection. This show is adjacent to a stunning Permanent Installation about Theatre in New York. Both not to be Missed!
