Westport: A Town Filled With Showoffs

“The Show-Off” is running now at the Westport Country Playhouse.

And, between now and the final curtain on June 29, the Playhouse is running a social media campaign.

A straw hat — similar to the one worn by the show’s title character — is being photographed on prominent people all around town.

If you’re Facebook friends with the Playhouse, or follow it on Twitter, you’ll see Westport’s favorite clothier, Bill Mitchell:

Who is Milky White, you ask?

One of the most important characters in “Into the Woods.”

And here’s the “prominent Westport” connection: In the summer of 1950, future composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim was one of a dozen Playhouse apprentices.
