Tony Award winning designer Willa Kim was with us at the Capitol Theatre last week conducting fittings with David Heuvel and Cindy Farrimond for her Emmy Award winning costumes for “The Tempest”. Willa Kim has won two Tony Awards for: “The Will Rogers Follies” and “Sophisticated Ladies”. I had the good fortune of having been in original casts at Joffrey of Willa’s designs and I can promise you her costumes are a dream for a dancer to wear.

Steven Woodgate is now in week two of teaching Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s MADAME BUTTERFLY to Ballet West. Formerly an accomplished dancer with the Australian Ballet, Steven Woodgate is now a wonderful Ballet Master and Choreologist with Houston Ballet. I couldn’t resist posting some pix.

“Madame Butterfly” promises to be dramatic, lush, soaring and a feast for the eyes. Don’t miss it!
