BWW Interview: Tech Talk with Dresser Paula Gilbert
by Frank Benge - May 9, 2016

Anytime you see a tour of a Broadway show, the talent happening right before your eyes is just the tip of the Broadway iceberg. Lurking behind the scenes is a whole crew of insanely gifted folks who also contribute to the spectacle on stage. One of those people is Paula Gilbert, who works here in Austin as a dresser for tours that come to Austin. They are called quick changes for a reason. At most touring shows, there's a crew of dressers running around backstage with a needle and thread in their pockets for last-minute repairs and safety pins clipped to their sleeves. There are ensemble dressers, who attend to a large group of people, holding up pants while chorus members step into them and swiftly shoving shoes onto feet.
