TRYING

"You root for this woman, dressed in her genteel ’60s garb...”

Celia Wren, The Washington Post

"Costume Designer Moyenda Kulemeka's attractive 60s-inspired wardrobe stands up well to Trying's half-dozen speedy costume changes."

"Smartly dressed in perfect period outfits thanks to designer Moyenda Kulemeka..."

Jeffrey Walker, DC Theatre Scene

"Forstrom is outfitted perfectly from her slightly bouffant hair to the tips of her ladylike pumps in professional late 1960’s office attire. Judge Biddle is always formally dressed, even when he relaxes enough to wear a cardigan—buttoned up, of course." 

Mary Ann Johnson, MD Theatre Guide

"The costumes by Moyenda Kulemeka deftly define the supporting characters’ various everyday looks—but the way Kulemeka cross-references Undine’s pricey white office wear and the ensemble’s white tribal wear is utterly amazing."

Jon Stoltenberg, DC Metro Theatre Arts
