This non-profit organization is definitely one of my favorites, because it provides a message of hope to those who have lost it, and it shows people that there is love out there.
In addition to supporting a charity, you will also be seeing one of the most beautiful scripts I've read in a while. Here is a synopsis from the Gainesville Theatre Alliance website:
"Intimate Apparel is a deeply moving portrait of Esther, an African-American seamstress who creates exquisite lingerie for women of both the boudoir and the brothel in 1905 Manhattan. As years pass and young friends marry and leave the boarding house and Esther consoles her loneliness and deftly stitches beautiful things for other women’s intimate moments, a stream of love letters begin to arrive from a handsome Barbadian laborer working on the Panama Canal. This winner of five Best Play awards is filled with desire, passion and betrayal."
Ticket proceeds go to GTA, but concessions and other donations will go to TWLOHA. Ticket information to come soon.
