A NOTE FROM ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, VINCENT M. LANCISI
elcome. At Everyman, we place a high value on intimacy. We are attracted to stories that are intimate, relationships that are intimate and performances that are intimate and offer an up-close view into a person’s life. We love to hold the mirror up to nature in a way that allows audiences to detect the subtle layers of relationships and motivations in search of the truth in the play.
advantage of the opportunities they created to survive. I think it’s fascinating that this play marks resident company member Dawn Ursula’s third opportunity to portray one of these iconic people here at Everyman. She transforms right before our very eyes as she takes on another of Nottage’s extraordinary characters. Intimate Apparel is a play filled with powerful, expressive writing. It’s about love and life and pursuing your dreams. Nottage’s poetic style with this piece reminds me why she’s one of the finest playwrights writing today. Her plays are deeply human. Each one provides an experience for the audience that represents live theatre at its best.
Intimate Apparel is the epitome of this kind of play. Lynn Nottage is the only woman playwright to ever win two Pulitzer Prizes for her dramas. This doesn’t surprise me. Intimate Apparel marks the third Lynn Nottage play we have performed over the past three years.

A NOTE FROM MANAGING DIRECTOR, JONATHAN K. WALLER
t Everyman, the story you see on stage can be just the beginning of your journey. We invite you to join us in deepening the experience by exploring how the play’s themes connect to our lives and history here in the Baltimore area. For Intimate Apparel, we have more opportunities to do this than ever before thanks to a growing circle of committed and connected partners.
This fall, Everyman began an exciting collaboration with the Maryland Film Festival (MdFF) called “Everyman at the Parkway.” This is a season-long partnership that brings influential films to the beautiful new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway in conjunction with Everyman’s 2017/18 season. It kicked off in September with nearly 100 people joining us for a screening of the film version of M. Butterfly starring Jeremy Irons. What followed was a vibrant conversation led by Founding Artistic Director Vinny Lancisi about the connections and contrasts between the stage and screen versions. For Intimate Apparel, Everyman Resident Company member Dawn Ursula will introduce Ava DuVernay’s award-winning film Middle of Nowhere and lead a postscreening discussion on October 24 about the resonances between the two works. For Intimate Apparel, in collaboration with fashionista/fashion historian/owner of Bonneau Caprece, LLC, Caprece JacksonGarrett, we’ve also partnered with Baltimore’s maker class of apparel designers and fiber artists to give our audiences a
peek into Baltimore’s own dynamic fashion industry—past and present. Here are a few highlights: On October 27, Stephen Wise, who was named Best Tailor by City Paper in 2016 and is the owner of SWB Atelier based in our own Bromo Arts and Entertainment district, will curate a community conversation called “Confessions of a Designer: The Untold Story.” The discussion will explore the fascinating inner life of working designers as artists, individuals, entrepreneurs and business owners. On November 12, notable Baltimore-based public artist and New Public Sites tour guide, Graham Coreil-Allen, will lead “Threading History and Place: A Bromo District Walking Tour.” The tour will feature the storied buildings that once made the west side of Baltimore a magnet of the fashion industry while also highlighting what shapes the neighborhood to this day. On November 19, Baltimore independent designers as well as students studying fashion design at MICA, Baltimore School for the Arts and the Baltimore Design School will showcase original work inspired by the play in “Boudoir Couture: Interpretations of Intimate Apparel.” This showcase will display wearable concepts that reflect selected designers’ points-ofview regarding intimate apparel. I hope you can join us for one or all of these events (see everymantheatre.org for more info). Thank you and enjoy the show! INTIMATE APPAREL | 5
A HISTORY OF WOMEN’S UNDERGARMENTS By Laura Weiss
A woman’s form can be altered by what she wears underneath. Corsets and other types of undergarments and shapewear create an illusion that the wearer presents to the world. Despite the possible physical damage caused by restricting undergarments, ladies of all social classes have worn corsets and other means of shapewear over the centuries achieving desirable silhouettes in observance of current trends. As the silhouettes of outerwear have evolved throughout history, so too have undergarments in order to complement those styles. From restrictive and shaping to push-up and barely there, take a peek underneath and see how women’s intimate wear has evolved….
Ancient Rome (753 BC - 476 AD) : Women wore undergarments including a “tunica” and “strophium” (bandeau style bra) made of linen, which emphasized the ideal feminine figure of small chest and large hips.
Middle Ages (500 - 1500 AD): Women wore corset-like outerwear to enhance their figures. Woolen hosiery was worn under dresses and chemises. Teasingly, wealthy women would wear bracelets to match their unseen garters.
Renaissance (1300 1700 AD): The favored female silhouette featured a pushed-up bust and wide hips emphasized with a full skirt. Laced corselets and stiffened bodices were worn to achieve this specific shape.
EVERYMAN THEATRE | 6
1500 - 1600: Corsets made their first real appearance during this period. The farthingale also came into fashion, which was another type of undergarment used to create a specific shape of the female form. It cinched to a woman’s waist and spread the skirts wide, creating highly exaggerated hips. 1700s: The 1700s corset was long-waisted and in the shape of an inverted cone, imposing an even more constricting shape. The wealthiest and most fashionable women had corsets that pulled together their shoulder blades so closely that they would nearly touch. Although prostitutes began wearing them during this time, panties were not yet adopted by the mainstream as they are today.
1940s: After WWII, underwire bras grew in popularity and the “bullet bra” was introduced (remaining popular through the 1950s).
1800s: The corset took on a new shape and was used to emphasize the hourglass shape with a very small waist. Corsets were made in beautiful colors with silks and satins and included garter clips at the bottom. Following the onset of crinoline in the 1850s, women wore drawers that extended to below the knee. Early 1900s: During the time of Intimate Apparel, the corset was still an essential part to a woman’s wardrobe, but also started to be thought of as standalone lingerie as much as an essential part of an outfit. (In the play, Mrs. Van Buren orders revealing corsets and undergarments from Esther and says she feels like a “tart from the Tenderloin”—an expression of forbidden desire.) The corset took on an extremely exaggerated “S-curve” shape, which created a very feminine shape. Silk became a popular fabric for corsets during this period. 1920s: After WWI, the corset’s popularity began to decline. As hemlines rose, underwear also became shorter and smaller. With the progress of women’s suffrage in 1920, many young women embraced a new sense of freedom and created an androgynous silhouette that featured bobbed pageboy-style hair and flattened busts with boyish hips.
1950s: Women’s underwear emphasized the bust instead of the waist and the popular bikini brief was introduced. The “Pin-up Girl” displayed an overt acceptance of women pictured in lingerie. These models showed off the latest underwear trends (seamed stocking, bustiers) and embraced the curvy female figure. 1960s: Bras ablaze! The “bra-burning feminist” became something of a legend during the Women’s Liberation Movement of the late 1960s. 1970s: Victoria’s Secret was introduced to the world as a destination retailer of women’s premium lingerie.
1980s: “Underwear” became “outerwear” and was worn by stars such as Cher in her infamous g-string bodysuit. 1990s: The “Wonder bra” (while first introduced in the 1930s) became popularized with a push-up design intended to enhance sex appeal. 2000s: Spanx, a slimming underwear brand, was introduced and quickly became a modern day shapewear essential. Recent years have brought a shift towards more diversity and body positive thinking in lingerie. Read more at everymantheatre.org INTIMATE APPAREL | 7
A SNAPSHOT OF TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY NEW YORK By Laura Weiss
n the first decade of the 20th century, over 9 million immigrants entered the United States. Many came through Ellis Island (located at the mouth of the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey), which opened as an immigration station in 1890. One report estimates that 40% of current Americans can trace at least one ancestor to the immigrants who came through Ellis Island. As opposed to earlier immigrants who tended to be from Northern and Western European countries, immigrants in the late 1800s and early 1900s were increasingly Catholics and Jews arriving from Eastern and Southern European countries. By 1900, America’s population was made up of roughly 1 million Jews—more than 40% of whom were “newcomers” (meaning they had been here for 10 years of less). From 1900 to 1924, another 1.75 million Jews would immigrate to America. New York’s Lower East Side—the setting of Intimate Apparel—predominantly housed Jewish immigrants (much like the character EVERYMAN THEATRE | 8
of Mr. Marks) along with a high population of Italians, Greeks and Hungarians. While residents may have found comfort in the culture and community, the neighborhood was dense and overcrowded. In 1900, there were more than 700 people per acre living on the Lower East Side. With the significant increase in population, Lower East Side buildings that had once been single-family homes divided into multiple living spaces known as tenements. By the turn of the century, over 2.3 million people in New York were living in tenement housing (this accounts for two-thirds of New York’s population at that time). The living conditions in tenements were cramped and often lacked any type of ventilation. A typical tenement building was five to seven stories high and would often be without indoor bathrooms. In 1901, the Tenement House Law mandated improved sanitary conditions, fire escapes and access to light. The rise of segregationist laws in the South led to mass amounts of African

Americans moving to Northern cities, like New York, in a period that would later be termed “The Great Migration.” By 1919, over a million African Americans had left the South, and New York City’s African American population grew by 66%. Most African American male migrants found work in factories and slaughterhouses while African American female migrants competed for a limited amount of domestic labor positions. In 1900, an estimated 19% of all women in the US worked outside of the home. Most working Caucasian women were employed as teachers, typists, nurses and
sales clerks. With the rise of industry, some white women found work in factories and mills, as well. By contrast, from 1900 to 1930, African American women were more likely to be gainfully employed than women of any other racial-ethnic group in the US. Black married women were eight times more likely to be working outside of the home than white married women. However, most were limited to agriculture and domestic work, with only 5% holding higher-paying occupations such as manufacturing, teaching, and clerical work. INTIMATE APPAREL | 9

AFTER STROKE STRENGTH TRAINING
A VA Research Study Designed to Help and Challenge Stroke Survivors in Multiple Ways
After a stroke people generally lose muscle mass and strength at an accelerated rate. This can cause problems with function and general health if left untreated.
Our preliminary studies show that regular, progressive Strength Training improves muscle mass, strength, function and general health after stroke. These important benefits are realized with only 3 months of training. We have evidence to demonstrate that this form of therapy may be extremely relevant for preserving health and well-being after stroke.

A HISTORY OF EVERYMAN
veryman Theatre was founded by Vincent Lancisi in 1990. From the beginning, Everyman strove to provide top-notch theatre that is affordable and accessible to everyone. With a Resident Company of local, professional artists, Everyman has staged critically-acclaimed productions ranging from classics to contemporary works to world premieres over the past 27 years.
Everyman’s first production—The Runner Stumbles—was produced in the winter of 1990 at Saint John’s Church. For the next four years, Everyman could only afford to produce one production per year at various locations in Baltimore, including Vagabond’s Theatre, the Theatre Project and even a classroom at MICA.
subscriptions numbers grew and a string of popular and acclaimed productions, including Amadeus, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Lion in Winter, The Glass Menagerie, The Crucible, and the wildly successful Proof, proved that Everyman was a mainstay in the Baltimore theatre scene. Through a generous donation from Bank of America and the Harold A. Dawson Trust, Everyman was given its new home on Fayette Street. Over the span of six years, Everyman completed a successful $18 million capital campaign co-chaired by Gina and Dan Hirschhorn. In January 2013, Everyman celebrated the Grand Opening of its new permanent home on Fayette Street with the record-breaking production of the Pulitzer Prize winning drama, August: Osage County.
The 1994/95 Season marked a series for firsts for Everyman. It was the first year at Everyman celebrated its 25th anniversary 1727 North Charles Street, which would during the 2015/16 Season by producing be Everyman's home for 18 years. It also "The Great American Rep," a feat featuring marked the first multi-production line-up— American classics Death of a Salesman and A starting with Sam Shepard's Buried Child— Streetcar Named Desire performed with the and also offered subscriptions to patrons for same cast in rotating repertory. the first time. Now in it’s 27th Season, Everyman invites Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, you to be a part of its next chapter.

WHAT IS THE BROMO DISTRICT? Imagine an arts district that connects the Stadiums and Downtown with a major corridor of Theatres, Galleries, and other public displays of art. Heading north, up the main arteries of Eutaw and Howard Streets, encounter Theatres, a public marketplace, and incubators spawning pop up galleries and emerging artists to be discovered. Continue on to find arts organizations celebrating the history and heritage of Baltimore and cultural institutions leading visitors up to the northern reaches of the district at Read and Howard Streets. In the next decade the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District will become a premiere district for performances and arts exhibitions sought out by citizens of Baltimore and visitors alike. The district will offer opportunities for artists of all disciplines to live, work, and create here. The district encourages the collaboration among its stakeholders and will attract new ones offering resources towards the creation and display of the arts.
