Everything You Touch

(Performing Arts - Theatre)

Time: 7:30 p.m.
Location: Warehouse Theatre

By Sheila Callaghan
[PG-13]
7:30 p.m. March 3-4; 2:30 p.m. matinee, March 4-5

Questions of personal ethics collide. Victor is a ruthless fashion designer in the 1970s at the top of his game. Esme, his glamorous protégé and muse, is pushed aside when an ordinary Midwestern woman inspires Victor to make his artistry accessible to the masses. A generation later, a woman wrestles with her family demons trying to find her way through a world of fashion that won’t give a woman her size a second look. Moving back and forth in time, Everything You Touch is a viciously funny look at the struggle to find an identity that’s more than skin deep.
