This world premiere production of Everything You Touch brings to the stage a ferociously funny look at the world of fashion. Circa the '70s, we meet Victor -- a fierce and famous fashion designer who's just become inspired by an ordinary Midwestern woman to cast aside his glamorous muse Esme in order to design clothes for the more commonly shaped masses. A generation later, amidst a battle with self-loathing and inner-demons, a woman tries to find her way through a world of fashion that bears little concern for a person of her size. As Everything You Touch bounces back and forth between these two stories, it delivers viciously comedic commentary on the struggle to discover personal identities that run more than just skin deep.

This was the first preview performance of the play, I would like to see how they tweak it down the line. This theater is very interactive with its patrons, many times scheduling comment/discussion events after the play in various formats. I thought the fairly simple story line was creatively brought to life by the abstract interpretive style of the play, and the lighting was unique and effective. All the actors were strong, and the style of the play let the viewer's mind add its own details based on personal opinions and experience. An ambitious work, I may go back and see a later production of it as well.
