PBT Costumier Celebrates 40th Anniversary with PBT
In 40 years with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, Janet Marie Groom’s career spans more than 500 tutus, 200 productions and 800 performances of The Nutcracker. The only current staff member to have worked with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre founders Loti Falk and Nicolas Petrov, Groom joined the company on July 17, 1973 – less than four years after the 44-year-old company’s founding. Since then, she has brought the visions of countless costume designers to life and conceptualized and created her own designs for new full-length ballets and Pittsburgh premieres. PBT celebrates the artistry, dedication and loyalty of Janet Marie Groom for 40 years of passionate service to Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre.
