Although my blog is new, if you have been following me on facebook, you know I have been painting *yellow shoes* for The Visit since it was at Williamstown. If you know me well, you may have seen some of the tell tale drops of yellow paint that still stain my clothes.
When the show moved to Broadway, I was delighted that costume designer Anne Hould Ward wanted me to maintain these yellow shoes so they would be as bright and as yellow as possible night after night! (Thank you Annie, Christopher, Robert, and Ben for keeping me on Team Yellow Shoes!!!!)
It is a sad thing to see such a beautiful show close on Broadway, but after every show closes, a mystery presents itself: WHAT HAPPENS TO THE COSTUMES?
Thank you to my classmate Alexae Visel for taking this picture at the TDF Costume Collection in NYC!
Thanks to her, this mystery is solved....at least for now! I am over the moon to see those lovely *Yellow Shoes* on display!
If you want to check out some of the costumes from The Visit, or rent some costumes, please visit TDF Costume Collection in Queens! Just visit www.tdf.org for more information , directions, and more!
(AND if you do go, please send me more pictures of the exhibit!)
I thought it would be fun to reminisce about our friends, the *yellow shoes*.
Here are the *yellow shoes* right after I freshened them up for the Tony's.
And here is a picture of me and my fabulous craft intern Jana "Destructive Princess" Bergstedt modeling some of the first "yellow shoes" at Williamstown:
Love to The Visit and to Williamstown!
