Arts Beat: Intimate Apparel Draws You In

The performance of Intimate Apparel was probably on the most engaging plays I’ve ever been to. The acting really drew me in. Bianca Denis, who played the lead role as Esther Williams, was amazing.

She really understood the character she was portraying. She came off as this shy, insecure person, who was cut off from the world. But as the play progresses, she learns what’s it like to open up to people and come out of her shell. While doing this she also learns the meaning of heartbreak when she discovers that her husband George was cheating on her with her best friend. The anger and hurt that Denis brings out is amazing. It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.

I honestly didn’t think that I would enjoy this play. But to my surprise I was never bored.
