Talking Band caps its 50th Anniversary Season with the premiere of Shimmer and Herringbone, a commissioned collaboration with acclaimed costume designer Olivera Gajic. Drawing inspiration from Gajic’s costume designs, Ellen Maddow and Paul Zimet wrote Shimmer and Herringbone (set in a clothing store by that name). The show, directed by Zimet with music by Maddow for live string trio, is a farce of chance encounters in which people tired of their old selves hope to find the clothes that will fit their new ones.

Shimmer and Herringbone is presented by Talking Band in association with Mabou Mines.
