Showgirl's Life Podcast | Ep. 5 Like being shot out of a cannon with special guest Pete Menefee

This week’s episode features the legendary costume designer, Pete Menefee, where he shares his about how he transitioned to costume design from dance and how designing for cabaret is like learning a new language. A bit longer than previous episodes, but you’re in for a treat!

We spent a lot of time talking about his work with Donn Arden, especially his time working on Jubilee! There are some fun historical anecdotes about designing for the biggest Hollywood names, and his thoughts on the future of topless revues. Pete is an amazing storyteller! Enjoy!
