The Wick Costume Museum Opens in Boca Raton
New Venue Provides Visually Stunning Walk through American Musical Theatre History
Collection has an Estimated Value of $21 Million
 
Boca Raton, FL---One hundred years of costume designer creativity will come to life in a spectacular new home in Boca Raton when Marilynn A. Wick and her daughter, Kimberly Wick open the Costume Museum at the Wick Theatre on November 15, 2013- the second phase of construction on the site of the former Caldwell Theatre Company.  The highly anticipated venue will house a collection of original costumes from over 35 Broadway productions and revivals with an estimated value of more than 20 million dollars.  The collection has been featured on The Today Show, in People magazine and was the subject of a spectacular photo essay in Vogue magazine by renowned photographer, Bruce Weber.

 
“For the past 38 years, I have had the privilege of collecting wardrobes from the most prestigious and successful Broadway productions in history,” said Founder and Executive Producer Marilynn A. Wick.  “My passion for preserving this cornerstone of the American theatre inspired me to envision the rehearsal and prop storage area at the rear of the theatre as the dramatic showcase where over 100 years of our history can be preserved and appreciated for years to come.

 
Marilynn and her daughter, Kimberly, began the Costume World Broadway Collection in a non-descript warehouse facility located in Pompano Beach in January of 2010.  Despite the low-profile location, the Broadway Collection rapidly developed a passionate following that exceeded 20,000 guests with nothing more than a word-of-mouth marketing strategy.  “From the moment we opened the doors to our first guests, our reputation grew beyond our wildest expectations,” said Kimberly Wick, curator of the Costume Museum and frequent docent on the tours.  “The support of the community, the charities, the women’s groups and all of the social organizations were the key to our popularity.  The obvious love they had for what we had created in this unusual and out-of-the-way place led to a groundswell of support that we could never have anticipated.  It convinced us to make this iconic collection available to all of South Florida as well as visitors world-wide.  It definitely carried a great deal of weight in our decision to purchase the theatre and move the collection to Boca Raton.”  
 
 
A visit to the Wick Theatre and Costume Museum will be a guaranteed memorable experience.  The incredible display includes wardrobes from such blockbuster productions as The Producers, Titanic, the Sarah Jessica Parker production of Once Upon a Mattress, La Cage aux Folles, The King and I, and the Julie Andrews production of My Fair Lady with original costume designs by the incomparable Sir Cecil Beaton.  The museum will showcase 12 permanent exhibits with 8 others rotating through the facility and the theatre throughout the season. 
 
 
The theatre’s exhibits will be reflective of the current main stage production at the Wick Theatre as well as exhibits from the vast film and television wardrobes available for loan from the Costume World vaults. Guests can also take advantage of the added option of attending a matinee at the Wick Theatre as part of their museum tour package. 
The Costume Museum at the Wick Theatre is located at 7901 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Museum at 561-994-2333.  Docent-led tours generally begin at 11:00 a.m, and are 7 days a week, subject to availability.  Tickets for the tour and luncheon are $48 per person; tickets for the tour, luncheon and cabaret show are $58.  Packages that include a matinee at the Wick Theatre are $88. 
 

 
For more information, please visit www.thewick.org or call the box office at 561-995-2333.
