I recently had the great pleasure of interviewing a North Carolina native who also happens to be a legendary costume designer for the Broadway stage, William Ivey Long. On April 13th, he was set to do a talk at the Paul Green Theatre, which is located on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill. Though due to the coronavirus that's been going on all over the world recently, the talk has been cancelled. However, I definitely did not want my interview with him to go to waste, so the show must go on. What you’ll be listening to is an edited version of the interview that removes everything regarding his upcoming visit. But for those who would like to hear the version of the interview where he talks about what he had planned, you can find it on my Patreon page. For $3 minimum a month, you can get some exclusive content from me that you won't be able to find anywhere else. For those who are interested in becoming a patron, the link is included in the episode notes.
William’s many Broadway credits include THE TAP DANCE KID, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION, GUYS & DOLLS, SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE, BIG, CHICAGO, CABARET, CONTACT, THE MUSIC MAN, SEUSSICAL, CURTAINS, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, 9 TO 5, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, BIG FISH, BULLETS OVER BROADWAY, TOOTSIE, and BEETLEJUICE. He’s also won six Tony Awards for his work on the original Broadway productions of NINE, CRAZY FOR YOU, THE PRODUCERS, HAIRSPRAY, GREY GARDENS, and RODERS & HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA.
