Quincy Tyler Bernstine Stars in Intimate Apparel at McCarter Theatre Center
Jade King Carroll directs the play by Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage.
Intimate Apparel is described as follows in a press release: "In 1905 Manhattan, Esther Mills sews beautiful corsets for a living. Her art and talents have earned her economic independence rare for an unmarried woman of color and allow her access to diverse social worlds. Despite her success, Esther yearns for physical and emotional intimacy, and begins a romantic correspondence with George, a laborer working half a world away on the Panama Canal. Her hopes and dreams are laid bare through a series of encounters with her clients, her landlady, and an Orthodox Jewish fabric merchant with whom she shares an unspoken attraction."
Quincy Tyler Bernstine stars as Esther and is joined by Jessica Frances Dukes (Mayme), Tasso Feldman (Mr. Marks), Galen Kane (George), Kate MacCluggage (Mrs. Van Buren), and Brenda Pressley (Mrs. Dickson).
The production's director is Jade King Carroll. Its all-female design team includes scenic designer Alexis Distler, costume designer Dede M. Ayite, lighting designer Nicole Pearce, and sound designer Karin Graybash.
