Is there a more apt metaphor for our own dreams and fantasies than intimate apparel? Esther is an illiterate African American seamstress in the early 1900’s New York who enjoys an unusual window into the lives of her clients. While creating exquisite lingerie for socialites and prostitutes alike, she is privy to their most private wishes and disappointments. As Esther observes for one client, “What she got, you want, and what you got, she want.” Esther, however, also must consider her own dreams for love, marriage, and a better life. An award-winning period piece which premiered in 2003, the play is full of engaging historical and cultural detail, strong storytelling, and Esther’s inspiring search for love and fulfillment.
