Congrats to Great Comet

Today was the release of the 2017 Tony Nominations and Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, the show I associate costume designed, was not only nominated for Best Costume Design of a Musical but took a nomination for almost every single category it was up for!

Congrats, team! So proud of all of your achievements!

D Deb!


I’ve been terrible at updating, but here’s what I’m up to!

Come see it!

It has been amazing working with Lee, Jerry, the other designers and the talented and lovely cast.

More soon, I promise.

Oh, P.S….

I live in New York now.


Things have been going well! I’m currently working on David Henry Hwang’s new piece about Bruce Lee, Kung Fu, as well as Roundabout’s upcoming broadway production of Violet.

I may be back in the spring/summer for a show in Chicago, so stay tuned!

‘Mojada’ at Victory Gardens – “A Triumph!”

Hi All!

Sorry for the radio silence.

Well, Mojada opened at Victory Gardens to rave reviews!


Read below and please come and see it – I’m very proud of the whole team.


Neglectful David

Hi friends –

I have to admit, I’ve been pretty terrible about the updates. Things have been busy for me recently and here’s a taste!


Sweet Charity closes this weekend. It opened in January to rave reviews and was extended for 2 weeks!



I also had the great pleasure of working at Barrow Street Theatre in New York City on a really special piece called Hit the Wall by Ike Holter.

It’s a piece about the Stonewall Riots in 1969 and was a really exhilarating process.

HIT_THE_WALL_SELECTS-5Sadly, it will be closing at the end of the month, so if you’re in the city and haven’t seen it yet get your tickets here!

As you can see, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the 1960s.

More soon!

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!
