The Best of Broadway Black Halloween 2015

Halloween was on a Saturday this year, guaranteeing that the night would be lit. I don’t know about you, but I love a good DIY costume. Minions, Elsa, and superheroes are cute (btw, if you haven’t seen Beyonce as X-Men’s Storm, check that out immediately), but Halloween is the time to bask in your inner creativity. Whether you were at home passing out candy or kicking it at Trilloween, we hope you had a great time on the night you get to choose to be someone you’re not. While some have the pleasure of acting on Broadway as a profession, that’s not the reality for all of us. So here are a few costumes that paid homage to Broadway shows this weekend! 

Who doesn’t enjoy seeing kids dressed up in period costumes? Lucky for you Gabriella Pizzolo, Oscar Williams, and Zell Morrow, the very talented kids in the Fun Home cast, dressed in their favorite 1700s wear, portraying Eliza, Hamilton, and King George.  

Who wore it best? …Obviously @sashahutchings, but I tried. #Halloween #Hamilton A photo posted by Darius Wright (@dariusawright) on

  This really is the year of Hamilton and we’re not mad about it! Darius Wright from the cast of Matilda, dawned some curls and lipstick, and transformed effortlessly into Sasha Hutchings, currently in the ensemble of Hamilton. He did that!    

It wouldn’t be Hamilween without someone portraying Leslie Odom Jr.’s, Aaron Burr. “Jeopardy!” phenomenon and Hamilton fan, Matt Jackson, nailed it and even added his personal flair scribing the “Ten Duel Commandments” in stone.

Nothing can top the admiration that beams from a daughter that wants nothing more than to be like her mom. Genesis, the beautiful daughter of Queen Viola Davis, takes the cake for best Broadway inspired costume of 2015. Who doesn’t want to be like Tony and Emmy award-winner Viola Davis. WHO!?!   

And we are telling you… Happy Halloween! A photo posted by BroadwayBlack (@broadwayblack) on

This one really just brings a big smile to your face. It’s so well done and spot on. Her pose & smile really syncs up well to the inspiration. We know Jennifer Hudson rocked the role and won an Oscar but this young girl deserves an award for her heart. We love it!

The ones that made us laugh the most included was Nick Rashad Burroughs, who will have his 54 Below debut alongside Marisha Wallace soon. He continued the Halloween celebration at Matthew Morrison’s party in a leotard. He was Aunt Viv from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the infamous audition episode. This one took us down!

Another good hearty chuckle came from Amber Iman, who went to her celebration as “The Bella Noches Girl”. I mean, If you can’t go to Bella Noches, where can you GO?!? This one was spot on and we are still in tears over it.

All in all, Halloween was great this year! Can’t wait to see what the Broadway Black community cooks up next year!
