Bibbitty-bobbity-boo, Period Corsets® works magic with Cinderella on Broadway

Pin It

Magic was in the air when Period Corsets® was asked to make a special custom corset for Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella on Broadway. The classic tale is being re-told on stage with 330 costumes by the talented William Ivey Long. Ivey Long recently won his 6th Tony Award for these amazing costumes that literally transform before your eyes on stage.
