BWW Review: The New Jewish Theatre's Thoughtful and Thought-Provoking Production of INTIMATE APPAREL
by Chris Gibson - Feb 2, 2017

The New Jewish Theatre's production of playwright Lynn Nottage's Intimate Apparel is a very engaging work that presents the audience with layers of text and subtext to chew on. It's primarily about the pursuit of a dream, and the events that occur that may delay or derail that dream, but not to the point where the protagonist ever gives up hope. Though set in New York at the turn of the last century, there are a lot of issues brought forth that will ring true for a modern audience. In these especially difficult times, it's a reminder of the way people of color were treated then, something we have to work vigilantly to make sure doesn't happen again. Drawing on the experiences of her great-grandmother, Nottage has written a wonderfully touching, and ultimately hopeful, work that is brought to life with an incredibly well done production by The New Jewish Theatre. I recommend it highly! (more...)
