It’s taken too long, but this week we finally have a costume designer…it’s Whitney Locher! Whitney and Cory discuss her new production of ‘Into The Woods’ (coming to Roundabout next season) and her long relationship with Fiasco Theatre. They discuss the in’s and out’s of dealing one-on-one with actors as well as the realities of costume research, shopping, and the fine art of diplomacy in a fitting room. Whitney tells us about working on the Tony Awards and Cory shares his new love of returning clothes. Not a mention of a moving light for miles!
