Hollywood Revisited: A Glamorous Musical Theater Extravaganza
From the 1930’s to the 1960’s, Hollywood film directors demanded spectacular costumes. Studios hired the biggest designers and fashion icons to bring to life the glitz and glamour that moviegoers expected. Edith Head, Adrian, Jean Louis, Charles le Maire, and Helen Rose were just a few that became household names because of their designs. In many cases, their creations were just as important as the plot of the movie itself.
Greg Schreiner is one of the most well known collectors of classic movie costumes, having assembled a stunning collection of over 300 original designer masterpieces. Costumes worn by Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Julie Andrews, Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Mae West and Judy Garland are just a few from the vast collection that dazzles the audience.
Greg shares his collection of original costumes in the musical theater extravaganza, Hollywood Revisited. A special Modernism Week event, the great Hollywood films of the 1940s to the 60s are highlighted, a Hollywood era closely associated with Palm Springs. Acclaimed vocalists sing and dance to movie-related music, wearing original costumes.
A concert pianist, Schreiner provides musical accompaniment with entertaining anecdotes about the designer, movie and scene, while on screen, the costumes and the stars wearing them are shown as originally seen by moviegoers.
“Hollywood Revisited brought not only show stopping gorgeous costumes to our concert stage, they also infused the night with the grandeur associated with the golden age of cinema.” – Michael Feinstein, entertainer3
The entrance to the Annenberg Theatre is located behind the Box Office adjacent to the museum’s North Parking Lot.
