Hamlet at Writers’ Theatre Opens!

Hi friends,

Long time no talk. Sorry about that – it has been a nutty summer here in Chicago for me and I’m just coming up for air.

So, Hamlet at Writers’ Theatre is open and getting rave reviews!

Here are some lovely comments about the costumes:

“The color palette for the show is a chilly but extremely elegant Nordic mix of black, gray, a touch of royal sparkle and much fur (applause for David Hyman’s costumes).” – Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times

“Gorgeously designed…. David Hyman’s lush costumes have a visual wit all their own.” – Kris Vire, Time Out Chicago

“David Hyman’s costumes have a contemporary frame of reference but make some potent excursions to the past.” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

“David Hyman’s costume designs range from the historical to the contemporary without ever looking out of place or anachronistic” – Dan Zeff, Stage and Cinema

“The gripping sense of immediacy and potency owes everything to the combination of Collette Pollard’s remarkably spacious rock-and-brick set design, Sarah Hughey’s eloquent lighting, Mikhail Fiksel’s evocative sound scheme and David Hyman’s suggestively antique costumes” – Lawrence B. Johnson, Chicago on the Aisle

It’s playing through November, so come on out and see it!
