Ahead of the upcoming Encores! presentation of Irving Berlin's Call Me Madam at New York City Center, costume designer Jennifer Caprio gives Playbill a sneak peek at her designs for the production. Featuring a score by Berlin and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, the 1950 musical sends up political discourse as a socialite is named U.S. ambassador to the (fictional) country of Lichtenburg.
Take a sneak peek at the Jennifer Caprio's costume design sketches below:
