THE 39 STEPS Costume Design coming together #geva39

Hey friends,

caprioMeet Costume Designer Jen Caprio, who is doing 39 STEPS for us, but you may know her from the Tony Award Winning 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM SPELLING BEE (she did the costumes for the original Broadway run) ,and after us, she’s going to work on the Broadway aimed LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE MUSICAL. She’s fancy.

Annabella-1So, we’re already working on the costumes for 39 STEPS this week, not only because we want the look to be perfect. But because there are soooo many quick changes that we need to figure out now exactly who is where, and changing from what to what.

You can see my breakdown of who plays what that I send to Jen Caprio our costume designer.


Then based on that she send back her costume breakdown.

Also, trading pictures for looks, or for color, until we have this portion of it figured out long before first rehearsal.
