Dead Blogging ‘Intimate Apparel’ at the Lyric Stage

Well the Missus and I trundled down to the Lyric Stage yesterday to catch its production of Intimate Apparel and say, it was more than swell.

From [Lynn Nottage] the author of By the Way, Meet Vera Stark, Apparel_WEB_iconsIntimate Apparel is a loving and evocative portrait of Esther, an independent but lonely African American seamstress in early 20th-century Manhattan who earns a living sewing exquisite lingerie for wealthy socialites uptown, and women of ill repute downtown. When Esther receives a letter from a stranger who is laboring on the Panama Canal, she begins a long-distance courtship with him, only to discover that he is not all that he seems.

The direction by Summer L. Williams is wonderfully adroit, Amanda Mujica’s costumes are just¬†lovely, and the cast is uniformly superb, especially Lindsey McWhorter’s heartbreaking Esther and Nael Nacer’s equally heartwrenching Mr. Marks.

Over all, a riveting production. You have until March 14 to see it.

  1. Beautiful but not very comfortable. Today we have Spanx. Not worthy of a stage
