This month, we’re trying something new on for size. Performers often ask if they can come to Broadway Sessions in full costume, and, normally, the answer is an unfortunate “no”.
While we love to channel our inner Fantine as much as we can, Broadway Sessions is normally about the performance and not about the set, props and costumes that go with a fully-staged musical. For one night only though, we’re willing to lift the ban and invite performers to go costume-mad. As this forms part of our theme, performers are required to either wear a costume that represents their character, or at least have something on or with them that is representative of their character. Think cos-play, but for musical theatre – a CosTUNE Party!
We are also encouraging our audience to join in on the fun, and while certainly not required for entry, we will be celebrating the best-dressed audience members and performers with recognition, praise, and a prize. Broadway Sessions will revert to being a non-costumed event after March, so take it in, become one with your favourite character, and dress to impress!
