Big Congrats to Neil Goldberg!!

The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU is excited to feature Cirque Dreams Founder and Broadway Director Neil Goldberg, in their upcoming exhibit “Hot Couture! Florida Jews in the Fashion Industry.” In addition to his costume, the exhibit will include some of his own history from textile fabricator to trend-setting costume designer and theatrical impresario. From his work on Broadway with Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy to Broward County’s recent Centennial Celebration, his contributions have made an integral impact in both the Jewish and fashion communities and they feel his inclusion in their exhibit is both relevant and noteworthy. The exhibit will run for one year, beginning November 2016.
