“Whether the cast and budget are large or small, she always puts together creative costumes that cast a spell, tell a story, enhance the moment, and inform the actor's art”
Jonathon Ward, Writer/Director 

....i swear, it was a rainy night, an added cast of thousands...i think all she had on hand was a bale of  recyled  string and a bucket of glue...

Catherine Fisher's costumes, all clever and evocative, help them convey the defining aspects of each of the many archetypes they're called upon to summon, from parent to wife to lover to child; from doctor to friend to boss to nurse.
The entire evening flies by as fast as a lifetime sometimes seems to,
 tribute to the excellent skills and talents of all of the artists contributing to this show. 
There's plenty of humor here and considerable food for thought as well.
