It brings us great joy to share the incredible gowns and other gorgeous clothes of Marin's. She always knew how to dress and what she looked good in. I hope these young ladies, who aspire to a career in music theatre, will wear the gowns with pride and go out there and conquer! https://t.co/vDwDl49KfR- Jason Danieley (@JasonDanieley) September 6, 2019
