'The Cher Show's' Broadway Dressing Room Transformation Will Make You Believe

Stephanie J. Block‘s dressing room at the Neil Simon Theatre has housed some top-notch talent within its hallowed walls, the likes of which include Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, and most recently, Nathan Lane (who took home the Tony for his performance in “Angels in America”). While it has quite the pedigree, Block is no stranger to the spotlight, having built a career playing fan favorite roles and literal living icons. The latest, of course, is Cher, in Broadway musical “The Cher Show,” which spans six decades of hits and requires no less than three actors to portray the titular diva at different points of her career and life.

Before & After: A Cookie Cutter Suburban Home-Turned-Vintage Surf Hideaway — House Tour

Name: Rachel and Nick Kuchar
Location: Ewa Beach, Hawaii
Size: 2,040 square feet
Years lived in: 5 years, owned

We turned our cookie cutter suburban home into the vintage surf hideaway we had dreamed of. We were given a 1950s Gordon & Smith longboard from a relative and that began our love affair with the era. I asked my husband, a graphic designer, to make some art for the house since I couldn’t find anything that was just right. My husband now sells the vintage style surf art he designed for our walls.

Location: LSU, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Before and After: We Love This No-Reno Bedroom Makeover

This bedroom, pre-makeover, was very relatable: an assortment of cozy fabrics in interesting patterns, a jury-rigged reading light, and a bit of fun thanks to the dartboard. Relatable, but not up to the high standards of its resident, who’s been passionate about interior design since childhood.

Before & After: Beautifying Beat-Up Flea Market Chairs

It’s impossible to believe, but at one point, these chairs were like two perfect plums. We first discovered them in NYC’s Chelsea Flea Market, one cold Sunday morning, in the early ’90s when my husband (then boyfriend) and I were recovering from a live Jane’s Addiction hangover. The flea market was a place you wandered through when you had nothing better to do and little energy to do it. We couldn’t believe we discovered these Knoll knock-offs and that they could be ours for 200 bucks. They were groovy, urbane, and they epitomized who we wanted to be.
