Costume Designers Reid Bartelme And Harriet Jung Honored At Live Source Theatre Group's Annual Spring Gala
Last night, Live Source Theatre Group (Tyler Mercer, Co-Founder & Executive Artistic Director; Chris Dieman, Co-Founder & Artist in Residence) held its annualSpring Gala, honoring designers Reid Bartelme and Harriet Jung for their outstanding contribution to costume design. Bartelme and Jung, co-founders of the costume and fashion design company Reid & Harriet, have designed costumes for Justin Peck, Pontus Lidberg, Marcelo Gomes, Pam Tanowitz, Emery Lecrone, Kyle Abraham, Mauro Bigonzetti, and Doug Varone. They have costumed productions at American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, Miami City Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet. Along with Justin Peck, they are featured in the documentary Ballet 422 which premiered at the 2014 TriBeCa Film Festival.
In attendance were Miami City Ballet principal dancer Jeanette Delgado, who presented the award to Bartelme and Jung, plus legendary choreographer Lar Lubovitch, two-time Tony Award-winning producer Pam Laudenslager (who serves on the group's advisory council), Gretchen Smith of the New York City Ballet, playwright Gianfranco Settecasi, and Live Source Board members Kathy Giamo, Lisa Kofod and Dennis Britt, among others.
As previously announced, this Fall, Live Source will present the world premiere of the stage adaptation of SUDDENLY, a new play adapted on the classic 1954 noir film starring Frank Sinatra, adapted by Gianfranco Settecasi after the screenplay by Richard Sale, directed by Tyler Mercer. Performances begin October 5th, and the show opens on October 7th, 2018. The limited engagement runs through Saturday, October 20th, 2018. The production is being staged at HERE (145 6th Avenue).
Live Source Theatre Group was founded in 2011 with the mission to elevate the role of design in the creation, development, and production of new theatrical works. The group uses both classic and original plays to reveal and explore contemporary themes, drawing from a blend of styles, stories, and live sources. With innovative design and technology in constant play with highly stylized performances, Live Source engages audiences through a bold new theatre aesthetic.
