B’way 101: Measuring a Show by Its Loads of Laundry
Playbill takes a tour of the wardrobe department of Disney's Mary Poppins, which operates on eight floors of Broadway's New Amsterdam Theatre. Here, you'll find over a dozen stitchers, costumers, wardrobe supervisors, day workers and dressers tending to the hundreds of costumes in the big-cast musical. The science of keeping a company dressed in pristine condition throughout a run is a daunting task! Doing 12 loads of laundry a day — which includes sorting hundreds of garments, from socks to caps — while juggling last-minute repairs, cast changes and wardrobe malfunctions keep this costume shop busy.
The Idea That Shook The World Atomic is the thrilling new Off-Broadway musical that blasts open the doors of The Manhattan Project, a government-funded program of top scientists with the task of creating the world’s first Atomic Bomb.
