With today's announcement of the design team for the upcoming play, Dead Accounts, including costume designer Catherine Zuber, I was reminded of just how much of her work I've seen and enjoyed. Of course, like most designers, she has designed extensively for theatre - New York and regional, opera and the occasional film. But her extensive career on Broadway alone qualifies her as a living legend. She is represented this season (so far) with An Enemy of the People, Dead Accounts and Golden Boy.
Beginning with the ill-fated musical The Red Shoes in 1993, hardly a season has gone by without her working being a part of things. She has some 47 Broadway productions to her credit, including several productions each for the Roundabout Theater Company, Manhattan Theatre Club, and Lincoln Center Theatre.
|2006: Best Costumes in a Play: Awake and Sing!|
|2007: Best Costumes in a Play: The Coast of Utopia (I - III)|
|2005: Best Costumes in a Musical: The Light in the Piazza|
|2010: Best Costumes in a Musical: South Pacific|
|2011: Best Costumes in a Play: The Royal Family|
Here are just a few of the other fine costumes she's designed over the years:
1997: Triumph of Love
2005: Little Women, Doubt, In My Life
2008 - Cry-Baby
2010: Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown
2011: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,
On a Clear Day You Can See Forever
She is a true legend of Broadway!
