WIWT: Acting the Part

July 10, 2016

The modern theatre atmosphere is certainly not what it was 60 years ago. Women are no longer wearing shiny shoes and fancy furs to see a Broadway show, and while comfort and accessibility are important, the art of seeing a live performance is something I think New Yorkers reconsider. Putting effort into your appearance is a way to show respect to the performers and production crew, and it ensures that you are well dressed for whatever else your night holds (after party drinks, a ronde vu with an ensemble dancer, etc.)

 

 

When choosing what to wear to a Broadway show, I dress as if I am going on a first date that I am excited about. I don’t want to throw on a pair of high heels or a tight skirt and be uncomfortable sitting for three hours, but I put on something from the “nice” side of my closet.

 

 

I saw She Loves Me starring Zachary Levi and Jane Krakowski last Saturday evening (which sadly closes on the 10th) and I wore a summer dress from J.Crew with my favorite white sandals. I might not have worn an A-line dress on a first date, but I would definitely wear this look to a work related function, which I think is also acceptable. I got to meet Zachary Levi (aka my favorite Disney prince: Flynn Ryder from Tangled), and while I only got a quick selfie and autograph, I was glad I looked my best.
