So I was joking with a costumer friend the other day that she hadn’t updated her website and then I was like, well, actually I shouldn’t be busting on anybody but myself…
And it’s not like I haven’t had news.
My big news is that I moved and I am renovating a new studio for myself. I am so excited to have more space for me and my clients. Moving is exciting and stressful and exhausting and stimulating and well, you get the picture. Speaking of pictures, I’m going to post some before and afters of my new workspace, stay tuned.
My season ahead is mixed… I am designing some shows, working wardrobe on a few shows and hopefully costume shop managing a show. In between, I am doing a variety of client alterations and custom garments. (I also have been really inspired by the natural space of my new place and want to make time to play around with natural dyes and fibers and am dreaming up some new textiles.)
When designing, it’s fun to work with the same team on more than one project. There’s a familiarity with each other and our work and that’s the case with The Wolves at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston. A. Nora Long is directing, Shelley Barrish is designing the sets and Elizabeth Cahill is designing the sound. We’ve all worked together before and we’re joined by Karen Perlow rounding out the design team on lights. It’s written by Sarah DeLappe and it is funny and poignant and as the mother of a teen, so right on.
Next year, A Nora, Shelley and I are also heading north to Kittery and working together on The Roomate at Threshold Theater. Again, new play, well-written, funny, but not at all fluff. Full of so much to think about. Plus Kittery is cool, an hour from Boston, with some yummy restaurants! (I’m just sayin’)
My final news is that I am going to better about news…so stay tuned… more news to come ;)
