Sarafina Bush ’12 on the red carpet for opening night of PASS OVER

Sarafina Bush ’12 majored in French and minored in dance at Adelphi, but she found her true calling designing costumes for student productions performed in the Adelphi University Performing Arts Center. That path took her to New York City, where she worked in costume design and productions such as Pass Over and MJ the Musical. Now she’s been nominated for a Tony Award in the category of Best Costume Design of a Play for her work on for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf, by renowned playwright and poet Ntozake Shange.

In her review of the play for The New York Times, Laura Collins-Hughes: “With characters named for the colors of the rainbow (and costumed accordingly here by Sarafina Bush), it has always been a love letter of sorts to Black girls and the women they become, and to the sustaining power of female friendships, from childhood on.”

Visit Bush’s website to see her work, and tune in on Sunday, June 12, at 8:00 p.m. on CBS to watch the Tony Awards live from Radio City Music Hall.
