Live Window Revue: Orfeh
Meet Tony-nominated Broadway sweetheart Orfeh… she’s trading the stage this Thursday to serenade Michael Kors as he celebrates his 30th Anniversary with Bergdorf Goodman! Wonder what she’ll be singing…?
BG: Good morning to our favorite Bergdorf blonde! We’re absolutely thrilled that you’ll be joining us this Thursday to celebrate Michael Kors’ 30th Anniversary! Although you’re no stranger to Broadway, will this be your first time to perform in a window?
Orfeh: Yes! This is my first time performing live in a store window… although my voice has come out of another stores’ Holiday Window displays as I narrated the stories behind the set ups.
BG: Interesting… well, you know how we love our windows & the costumery that goes into it! Has there ever been a look – worn or seen on the stage – that struck your fancy?
Orfeh: The elaborate hand beaded dress Elphaba wears in Wicked…it weighs a ton but is gorgeous…also loved all the Amneris costumes & the ‘Strongest Suit’ Runway costumes in Aida…I thought all our costumes in Saturday Night Fever were perfect and surprisingly comfortable!
BG: Those all sound fitting for a live window revue. Wonder if there are any hints hiding in your answer?! Has anything happened on stage that… you know, wasn’t supposed to take place?
Orfeh: It’s not a personal one but it did happen during Legally Blonde. We had a golf cart driven onstage during a number in Act2. One night, the person driving the cart lost control of it and almost drove it straight off stage & in to the audience…it took a bunch of crew guys and some brave audience members to push it back up on stage… Thankfully, no one was hurt and the audience loved it.
BG: Now on to a favorite question of ours: what’s your worst childhood fashion memory?
Orfeh: 2 words corduroy culottes..nuff said…
BG: Oy vey… and it’s an alliteration! Have any guilty pleasures you want to share with 5th/58th?
Orfeh: Expensive & obscure perfumes are my guilty pleaure. If they become popular, I return to your Beauty Level! You know, Bergdorf was always the treat shopping excursion w/my Mother when I was a youngster…it was like Heaven to me!
