Bay Street Theater has announced complete casting for its upcoming production of two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynne Nottage's Intimate Apparel, which will be presented at the Sag Harbor venue July 4–30.
Directed by Bay Street Theater Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, the cast will be headed by Kelly McCreary—one of the stars of ABC's Grey's Anatomy—as Esther Mills.
McCreary will be joined by Portia (Ruined, McReele, Our Lady of 121st Street) as Mrs. Dickson, Blake DeLong (Othello; Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) as Mr. Marks, Julia Motyka (Bay Street's Travesties, Richard III) as Mrs. Van Buren, Edward O'Blenis (Uncle Vanya, Tall Grass) as George, and Shayna Small (The Colored Museum) as Mayme.
In Intimate Apparel, according to Bay Street, there's “a delicate line between love and desire. Esther Mills is a skilled African American seamstress and has her own successful business in 1905 making lingerie for both society ladies and ‘ladies of the night.’ But she is lonely. As she searches for something more in her life, she unearths truths long hidden in the deepest recesses of her heart.”
The creative team includes composer Michael Holland, set designer Jeff Cowie, lighting designer Mike Billings, costume designer Emilio Sosa, sound designer Jill B.C. DuBoff, props designer Andrew Diaz, production stage manager Gwen Gilliam, and dialect coach Stephen Gabis. Casting is by Stewart/Whitley.
Nottage is also the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ruined and Sweat; the latter is a 2017 Tony nominee for Best Play.
