Broadway Dressing Room Transformation for John Stamos

The "before" photos. Scroll down for the "after" photos.
Carter Oosterhouse and John Stamos.
Last month when I reviewed the revival of 'Anything Goes' at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, I recalled seeing a photo spread a couple of years ago featuring the transformation of one of its dressing rooms for actor John Stamos. At the time the venue was called Henry Miller's Theatre and a complete overhaul that began in 2004 was finally completed with the opening of the 2009 revival of 'Bye Bye Birdie' starring Stamos as Albert Peterson (the role originated by Dick Van Dyke on stage and in film).

Carpenter and HGTV star Carter Oosterhouse designed the make-over of the dressing room and bathroom for Stamos. It's amazing and one wonders what other stars on Broadway get the same treatment for their dressing room. Big question is what remains after the show ends. Unfortunately this revival of 'Bye Bye Birdie' had to pack its wings when the production closed four months later after 117 performances.*

These photos are from the 2009 photo spread from Click HERE to see the complete set of photographs by Jenny Anderson.

*Note: though the production was initially announced as a limited run and was extended two weeks, the high profile revival received largely poor reviews from the popular press and closed with the expiration of leading actors' contracts. Should the production had received positive notices and grosses to match it was expected either the leads to extend their contract or have their parts recast.
