Comprising one of the richest costume collections from the Broadway stage, the Costume Museum at the Wick Theatre houses designer-made costumes from over 35 musical productions. Since its founding in 2010 by Marilynn A. Wick, the collection serves to preserve and showcase over 100 years of history in theatre. Here’s your need-to-know guide.
The Wick Theatre & Costume Museum located in Boca Raton, Florida, offers visitors a tour of the wardrobe in an interactive environment. Visitors are led on an up close and personal tour of the costumes from major productions such as Titanic, My Fair Lady and Dracula, among others. The theatre lobby exhibits reflect the current main stage production at the Wick Theatre, and wardrobes are rotated regularly offering a unique experience with every visit.
Some of the wardrobes at the Wick Theatre from film and musicals are also available for loans, for interested parties.
The museum also houses the “Tavern Room”, an interior remake of the Tavern-on-the-Green, the historic American restaurant in Central Park in New York City that dates back to 1934. Here, guests are taken on a culinary journey, dining amid refined china and crystal from the iconic restaurant. The room also features amber wall details and a crystal chandelier from the one in the foyer of the real restaurant. The elegant trip down memory lane is a favorite for those who can admire the graceful details from the past.
Visitors may also purchase tickets to catch a performance on stage at the Wick Theatre. The performing arts theatre showcases popular musicals like Beauty & the Beast, and Singin’ in the Rain. This season, the theatre will be playing Annie, The Pirates of Penzance, Funny Girl, Crazy for You, and Always Patsy Cline.
