He's dressed stars in New York and now he's brought his Broadway costumes to Broadway in North Knoxville.
"I worked wardrobe and helped with the costumes and then also dressed a lot of the main stars, the divas," De Wayne Kirchner explained.
He worked his way through the Met, Radio City Music Hall, and Broadway.
He remembers one star who couldn't stand his cologne.
"I had to go wash it off and I still didn't get it off enough so we had to switch who we were dressing because of that," he said.
