Tartuffe

SecondStory Repertory
Directed by:  Corey McDaniel

August 2011

 

"Costumer Janessa Jayne Styck festoons him in lace-kneed bloomers beneath his puritanical waistcoat; and in the crucial scene where he's framed for indecency, he unties his shirt collar with his teeth. Such tiny, character-revealing moments burst like juicy grapes on a parched palate."

Macbeth

GreenStage (Hard Bard)

Directed by: Ken Holmes

October 2010

 

"I very much enjoyed the "Steam Punk" design sense used for sets, props and especially costumes. On a small budget, the designers have come up with some witty and charming designs and Peter Burford, (sets); Laura Garcia, (props); and especially Janessa Jayne Styck's costumes are to be commended and admired."

Comedy of Errors

GreenStage

Directed by: Ryan Higgins

July 2009

 

BEST COSTUMES (WINNER) - Second Annual Weisenheimer Awards

 

"Comedy of Errors directed this summer by Ryan Higgins did pretty much everything exactly right, and costumes were no exception. Cross-staging and cross-dressing take some effort and imagination and everyone pulled it off with panache. I won't soon forget Michael Blum in Marge Simpson pink hair and a red dress, or Patrick Bentley and Rio Codda in drag. The Dromio twins really did look alike, which was partly magnificent casting (where did Higgins find Adria LaMorticella and Esra Chelen Guler? They were fantastic!) but also meticulous costuming. The comedy in this production is very, very physical (it has to be in Errors, doesn't it?) and the costumes—or should I say fabrications?—by Janessa Jayne Styck held up."
