Cole Capobianco is thrilled to return to the Mac-Haydn backstage for their third season. After spending this past winter revamping the Mac’s costume stock, Cole is overjoyed to switch gears from putting garments on hangers to getting them on performers. A true labor of love, Cole’s costumes overhaul journey brings new and improved costume shop, loft, and annex infrastructure, but not without the love, help, and support of the MHT family. Cole would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Skip Spateholts, David Tankersley, John Saunders, and James Benjamin Rogers in particular for making it all possible. Here’s to another excellent summer of art and laundry – break legs and enjoy, folks!
