     Lynn Nottage’s play about Esther, an African American seamstress living in New York City in 1910, is writing that is full of fire. 
     Director Seth Rossman was able to elicit powerful performances from his cast.
      Lisa Young is luminous as Esther. 
      Simone St. John creates a portrayal of Mayme that gives us a vibrant sensual lady of the evening.

    L-R: Cris Davenport and Lisa Young

    Cris Davenport is a dramatic dynamo who simmers slowly at first and builds to create a frightening maelstrom of conflict. 

Left-Right: Lisa Young and Seth Maisel

     Seth Maisel is endearing as a Jewish tailor with whom Esther has an abiding friendship.
    Debbie Faber’s costume design is exceptional. The colorful corsets, bustiers, smoking jackets and robes she has created are stunning.
     There is not a weak link in the cast. 
     Alex Polzin’s well appointed scenic design and Rick Reid’s sound design conspire to place us directly into the world of 1910 New York City. 
     Vintage once again delivers a high quality theatre experience.
