Bob Mackie Will Create Costumes for Broadway’s The Cher Show, Full Design Team Announced

Posted: March 14, 2018 

"The design team is now set for the Broadway-bound The Cher Show, exploring the life, career, and music of the entertainment legend. Among the roster is costume designer Bob Mackie, who has collaborated with Cher over the years on myriad iconic looks, dating back to her 1967 appearance on The Carol Burnett Show..

The Jason Moore-helmed production will also feature sets by Tony winner Christine Jones (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and Brett Banakis (The Glass Menagerie), lighting design by Tony winner Kevin Adams (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), and sound designer Nevin Steinberg (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen).

Cher’s story will first take the stage this summer with a world premiere in Chicago; performances run June 12–July 15 at the Oriental Theatre. The show will then open at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre (currently home to Angels in America) in the fall.

Similar to the conceit of Broadway’s upcoming Donna Summer musical SummerThe Cher Show will feature three women portraying Cher at various stages of her life: “Babe,” “Lady,” and “Star.” Previous developmental presentations included such characters as Mackie himself, Sonny Bono, Cher’s parents, and Sigmund Freud. Casting for the Chicago and Broadway engagements will be announced later.

The creative team also includes book writer Rick Elice, choreographer Christopher Gattelli, and musical supervisor Daryl Waters.


Check out Mackie's first designs for the show, featuring the three stages of Cher's life to be depicted on stage."

New Fantastic Four Costumes Revealed by Marvel

Posted: March 14, 2018 

"If you're not reading Marvel Two-In-One by Chip Zdarsky, Jim Cheung, Valerio Schiti, and Frank Martin right now, I don't know what to tell you. You're missing out on what might just be the most fun pure superhero book Marvel has right now. It has been the perfect match of writing and art, with Zdarsky's rapid-fire wit melding perfectly with the big, classic FF style storytelling of artists Jim Cheung and Valerio Schiti. Fans who feel (rightfully) that the Fantastic Four have been kinda mistreated by Marvel the last few years would do well to pay attention here, because "The Fate of the Four" story is setting the tone for how they will return to the Marvel Universe in all the right ways.

The story has centered on Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm's quest to get the band back together while Reed Richards, Sue Storm, and Franklin and Valeria Richards are missing after the events of Secret War. Seriously, it has been a loooong time since Marvel has had a Fantastic Four book on the market, and this has all of the elements you want...even if they're still short a couple of members. Oh yeah, and we've got a cool new super scientist in the form of Rachna Koul helping the fellas out and plenty of Doctor Doom lurking around, too.

So while they continue to tease us with what the actual "fate of the four" is going to be, we at least have an indication of what the new look is going to be. Check out these sharp new costumes designed by Valerio Schiti!"
