11 am- show time daily. In INTIMATE APPAREL, it's a delicate line between love and desire. Esther Mills is a skilled African American seamstress and has her own successful business in 1905 making lingerie for both society ladies and "ladies of the night." But she is lonely. As she searches for something more in her life, she unearths truths long hidden in the deepest recesses of her heart. All her relationships will be changed forever, from a poetic love with a Caribbean laborer working far away on the Panama Canal, to complicated friendships with different women in her life, to a growing bond with a Hasidic shopkeeper who shares his exquisite finds of fabrics and maybe something deeper.
In addition to Kelly McCreary (Grey's Anatomy, Passing Strange) as Esther, the cast will feature Portia (Ruined, McReele, Our Lady of 121st Street) as Mrs. Dickson, Blake DeLong (Othello, Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812) as Mr. Marks, Julia Motyka (Bay Street's Travesties, Richard III) as Mrs. Van Buren, Edward O'Blenis (Uncle Vanya, Tall Grass) as George, and Shayna Small (The Colored Museum) as Mayme. The creative team includes Michael Holland (Composer), Jeff Cowie (Set Designer), Mike Billings (Lighting Designer), Emilio Sosa (Costume Designer), Meg Murphy (Hair/Makeup Designer), Jill B.C. DuBoff (Sound Designer), Andrew Diaz (Props Designer), Gwen Gilliam (Production Stage Manager) and Stephen Gabis (Dialect Coach). Casting by Stewart/Whitley.
