SEAN DANIELS: Broadway designer uses her talent (and iPhone) for creating costumes for MRT’s I AND YOU

First up – let me just say Jen Caprio is the bomb.

Broadway veteran, award winner, MRT Patriot – who, in addition to be an incredibly nice gal, also takes care of a one eyed dog named uno – I MEAN COME ON.

(she was also with me in the dressing room moments before I got married, when I realized I had left my vows in the car, so she ran out to get them while I hurriedly got dressed – you know, one of those good eggs…)

She’s working on the costume design for I AND YOU.

First step – she finds pictures that inspire her. Sometimes it’s about the exact piece of clothing, and sometimes it’s about the vibe.

Then she draws – and usually as she draws, she texts me…

And via text, whenever we are, we figure it out….

By first rehearsal, she’ll have finished drawings that we’ll share with the actors and staff. Then we’ll  begin to put together Jen’s design into action.
