for Big Fish

In addition to sets by [Julian] Crouch, the wizard behind the look of the great Grand Guignol 'Shockheaded Peter,' the show has top-of-the-line lighting by Donald Holder, costumes by the tireless William Ivey Long and fluid projections by Benjamin Pearcy for 59 Productions.

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

William Ivey Long captures the playful vibe with ingenious costumes that move in unexpected ways (like the fishtail of a mermaid’s silvery costume) and contribute their own magic to the storytelling (like the witches that materialize from the trees in a forest).

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

[Norbert Leo Butz] is at his lovable and elastic-legged best as Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lived to tell tall tales.
