Q: You’re working with a Who’s Who of indie theater — actors Shea Gines, Joe Mathers and Matthew Trumbull, costume designer Viviane Galloway and more. What’s the experience been like?
A: Well, I have to say, I feel like a lucky duck! . . . Viviane has been one of my closest friends for, gosh, going on a decade now. This will be the third show she’s designed for Retro, and I’ve always had the utmost respect for her. It is unbelievable what she accomplishes on next to no money. I wonder how she does it!

Viviane Galloway's costumes are vividly character-defining and provide rich period detail.
