For two weeks, we’ve been honored and excited to have Tony Award-winner Santo Loquasto here at PNB working on the scenic and costume designs for the world premiere of Twyla Tharp’s latest new work, Waiting at the Station.
Here’s a few images to give you an idea of what he’s been up to:
Set in New Orleans to a score by the legendary R&B musician Allen Toussaint, Twyla Tharp’s latest ballet has a Mardi Gras section that looks like a ton of fun to dance and, of course, the costumes are fantastic!
The Company women will wear Mardi Gras hats and dresses inspired by day dresses of the 1930s and 40s:
If you’re loving Santo’s work as much as we are, or if you’re a moviegoer, be sure to catch Woody Allen’s new film, Blue Jasmine starring Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin, for which Santo was production designer.
