Think feather boas and flapper dresses. Roaring ‘20s vintage and Broadway show costumes are back on view at The Wick Theatre’s Costume Museum.
“We’ve resumed our tours and we’re limiting them to 25 guests,” said Kimberly Wick, docent and museum curator for the revolving exhibit of the theater’s million item Broadway and film costume collection.
The Wick Theatre has been doing supper club dinners and cabaret in the lobby and has resumed some social distancing performances in the theater. The regular season run starts with a “A Chorus Line” April 22 to May 30. Billy Stritch is back in April and cabaret shows also include Marilyn Maye and Clint Holmes.
But the separate costume museum and entrance out back has just reopened with this exhibit on view through June 4.
“The museum lobby has been transformed into a Pullman car and you’re off on a trip around the world including costumes from seven incredible Broadway shows,” Wick said. “They include Angela Lansbury’s original ‘Mame’ costumes and people love our salute to the prohibition era full of vintage 1920s dresses,” Wick said. “We go on stage as well,” she said.
The tour runs about an hour with Wick’s running commentary on the costumes and vintage clothing. There’s a luncheon afterward with Tavern on the Green’s original china. Some tours are packaged with performances.
“It’s important we all spread our wings a little bit in a safe way. Guests will be seated with their reservation companions in the Tavern in the dining room and we can easily social distance on the tour,” she said.
The tour and lunch is $53, or $63 with cabaret. Go to https://thewick.org/museum/ and call the box office at 561-995-2333 for a reservation.
