Brooks Brothers dresses Broadway's 'Business' boys
Although audiences and theater critics will ultimately be the judge of that (Los Angeles Times theater critic Charles McNulty reviews the show here), the Broadway revival of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," which opened on Sunday at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, is awash with wardrobe from the storied clothier.
Brooks Brothers worked with costume designer Catherine Zuber to create made-to-measure suits and topcoats for actor Daniel Radcliffe's J. Pierrepont Finch character as well as outiftting the entire male cast (which includes veteran actor John Larroquette).
The Brooks Brothers relationship apparently extends beyond the edge of the stage too -- at least for Radcliffe -- who turned out to Sunday's opening-night after-party wearing a Brooks Brothers black fleece, three-button wool and mohair blend tuxedo with a black silk faille lapel and matching bow tie.
