NYC Fall 2023 - Ticket Notification List

It is early spring, 1987, New York. Late afternoon, spilling into dusk. We are in the living room of the East 63rd Street apartment of famed American fashion designer, Halston. The journalist has arrived.

Written by Raffael Pacitti, directed by Kimberly Senior (Broadway’s Disgraced, MTC’s Bella Bella and The Niceties), and starring Ken Barnett (Broadway’s Fun Home, Wonderful Town, The Green Bird), this one-person play is a fictionalized version of the interview that led to a seminal New York Times article about the legendary designer.

Throughout the interview, a young, unseen, yet ever-present journalist learns about varied aspects of Halston’s life and career. We meet the people Halston knew and loved, as well as the cultural figures who influenced him. We hear about the visionary work that not only gripped the fashion world for decades, but also helped shape the evolution of identity, gender politics, sexuality and style—in America and around the world.
