Head of Costume Design, Helen Huang, has been selected to present her work at the Costume at the Turn of the Century 1990-2015 international exhibition to be held at the A. A. Bakhrushin Museum in Moscow, Russia in June/ July 2015.
This is a great honor and recognition of Helen's costume design work on The Monkey King for The Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis, which garnered the respected 2005 IVEY award; and Measure for Pleasure, a bawdy comedy of manners by playwright David Grimm, for the Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, D.C.
