Press & Reviews

Cromer’s staging honors and sets off each individual in a way I’ve never seen before with this piece, thanks in no small part to the costumes of David Hyman.

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

…very real looking sets (by Collette Pollard) and costumes (by David Hyman) create a kind of emotional milieu where despair and the need to connect physically alternate from number to number, eventually adding up to something bittersweet, and true.

Hilton Als, New Yorker

David Hyman’s costumes were superb. I LOVED the dirty, ripped, but appropriately ragged costumes for the main characters. Angel’s “holiday outfit” was an appropriate homage to the original costume, but with a more real, gritty feel.

Lazlo Collins, Chicago Theatre Review

It should be said that David Hyman’s costumes are the most instantly refreshing aspect of this reimagining …. You know you’re in for a new kind of treat when Alan Schmuckler’s wonderfully schlubby Mark shuffles onstage sans the character’s trademark scarf, sweater, and dippy hairdo. He’s so splendidly gross-looking.

Each of David Hyman’s costume pieces are tattered and timely, the garb of starving bohemians and the homeless as opposed to clean-cut cartoons.
