Great Performances “Intimate Apparel”

Friday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m.

Set in Manhattan in 1905, Great Performances: Intimate Apparel tells the story of Esther Mills (Kearstin Piper Brown), a single African American seamstress who makes elaborate corsets and ladies’ undergarments. After beginning a letter-writing relationship with a mysterious laborer on the Panama Canal, she marries, but discovers the relationship is not what either of them expected. Through this romance and other interactions with friends, one of her clients, and the Orthodox Jewish man who sells fabrics to her, Esther realizes that only her self-reliance will see her through life’s challenges.

Three young people face away from the camera. The middle figure has an arm around each of their friends; the other two each have an arm raised in triumph. The trio are looking out across the landscape.
