Photo Coverage: WICKED-Inspired Episode of PROJECT RUNWAY ALL-STARS Crowns Winner
Broadway's WICKED collaborated with Lifetime's hit series, "Project Runway All Stars," for a WICKED-inspired episode and couture challenge, which aired last night, November 13. BroadwayWorld has photos of WICKED's stars with the winner and her designs below!
The All Star designers were challenged with creating couture-inspired garments, using the themes of the hit musical WICKED, the world of Oz, and Susan Hilferty's Tony Award-winning WICKED designs as inspiration. Filmed onstage at WICKED's Broadway home, the Gershwin Theatre, where "Project Runway All Stars" host Alyssa Milano entered in Glinda's iconic bubble, the episode features current WICKED starsChristine Dwyer and Jenni Barber delivering the challenge to the All Star designers.
The winning garment will be on display in the lobby of Broadway's Gershwin Theatre beginning today, November 14, where it will remain through the end of the year.
Currently playing at the Gershwin Theatre, Wicked opened in October 2003. Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Joe Mantello with musical staging by Wayne Cilento. Wicked is produced byMarc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
Winner of over 50 major awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards, Wicked is the untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
