Press & Reviews of DANCIN'

The Music Box Theatre 2023

In my 20 years of working in Wardrobe, I have never seen the wardrobe team get a shout-out in a major press outlet. Needless to say, I could not have been more proud of my work on this production and the amazing team that made it all possible. Thank Entertainment Weekly for the shout-out!

“Featuring snippets of "Hey Big Spender' from Sweet Charity and "I Gotcha" from Liza with a Z, "Big City Mime" is mesmerizing among the costume changes (the dressers in this show could solve world peace by dinner time), the set changes, and... ah, the dancing!”

Press & Reviews of Gregorian

Walkerspace Theatre (Soho Repertory Theatre) 2017

"History is long. Memory is short. And much is buried under the rug. Unearthing the past, Matthew Greene’s latest play, Gregorian - digs deep into the painful history of the Armenian people. - Dermody’s direction, working hand in hand with Charlie Sutton on movement, was quite deft, not an easy task given the split timing needed to smoothly link each scene to the next."
