Look Back at Checkers

I was on the picture hunt of the last night event - Vineyard Theatre 30th Anniversary Gala. Unfortunately I only found 2 photos yet, I'll show you tomorrow after another check of image pages.

But I found this gem of the Checkers wardrobe's blog called Beside the Actor.

The last show I wardrobe supervised was a play at the Vineyard Theatre called Checkers by Doug McGrath. The show documented Richard Nixon's famous "Checkers" speech and the events leading up to it. For the show, costume designer Sarah J. Holden designed the dress Pat Nixon (played by Kathryn Erbe) wore to look exactly the same as the actual dress the real Pat Nixon wore during the speech's broadcast in 1952.
