Intimate Apparel Opening Night

INTIMATE APPAREL at Bay Street
Moving production helmed by Scott Schwartz opens in Sag Harbor starring Kelly McCreary.

July 8,2017:  Intimate Apparel by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Lynn Nottage, is a terrific play about Esther, an African American seamstress played by Kelly McCreary, best known for her TV role on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” Esther has her own successful business in 1905 catering to both society ladies and “ladies of the night,” but she is lonely. When she searches for something more from her life she discovers hidden feelings she didn’t know existed.
