2016 Performances

Intimate Apparel

September – October 2016

By Lynn Nottage

In segmented, Victorian New York, a black prostitute, a white millionaire and an Orthodox Jewish merchant would never meet. But through her work sewing beautiful corsets, Esther befriends all three, as they search for love and happiness against the odds. A great play with a little naughtiness, a little drama, and a little comedy. A little something for everybody.

Featuring Victoria Benkoski, Aileem Penn, Kelsy Nevins, Andrew Vroman, Carolyn McLaughlin and Rebekah Brisbane

Directed by Jean-Remy Monnay
