In this episode, we revisit careers in the theatre that not only lack a spotlight, but whose specifics are unknown to those working behind the scenes. Nonetheless, they are crucial to the production of a stage show and make things move smoothly. Custom Shoemaker Gino Bifulco produces shoes for some of the most well-known shows past and present. You are sure to have seen his work. Bruce and Sarah Barish, owners of Ernest Winzer Cleaners have cleaned, organized, and maintained costumes, props, and more for the Broadway stage. The family owned business has supported making cast comfortable and restoring the work of the great designers for over 110 years. It’s an Odd Job that’s extremely important for every run of a stage show.
