Climbers

The Metropolitan Playhouse 2017

Director: Michael Hardart

Costumes: Sidney Fortner

Lights: Christopher Weston

 

"I have seen more than a dozen productions at the Metropolitan Playhouse, and this is one of the best uses of the intimate space that I recall. Michael LeBron has designed a simple but functional circular platform that easily transforms into various interior and exterior locations. There is a pop-up dinner party set that is an example of astute stagecraft. Equally impressive are Sidney Fortner's period dresses, which admirably evoke the austerity and glamour of the Gilded Age. The production is adeptly lit by Christopher Weston, who captures some of the play's periodic melodramatic moments with effective cinematic fadeouts." James Wilson - Talkin' Broadway
