Joseph Salasovich, Costume Director at Arena Stage
Spend an hour with Joe Salasovich, Costume Director at Arena Stage, reminiscing about the performances at Arena Stage through the lens of costumes. We will dive into the process of bringing the garments to life on our stages and celebrate the fantastic designers and skilled artisans in the costume shops. We will look at the marvelous creations made specifically for principal female characters in the plays and musicals presented in the Fichandler, the Kreeger, and the Kogod over the past 20 years. We will see the entire journey of a costume—from the first read of a script to the final bow on closing night—and learn about the team that keeps all these fabulous actors dressed to impress. Bring all your questions. Joe will answer those and more as we have open discussion about hats and wigs and corsets and petticoats and dresses and gowns and boot and shoes and accessories and how they support character and storytelling.
