A rockstar's take on Victor Hugo's classic novel. This story centers on Frollo's experience as a 15th century archdeacon who cares for Quasimodo, a deformed child, and who wrestles with his lust for the vulnerable Romani girl Esmerelda.
"Alyssa Ridder’s brightly colored costumes give Hunchback a multi-faceted sheen of beauty that dazzles yet also hides the emotional darkness within."
"Lush, vibrant costumes by Alyssa Ridder"
"Alyssa Ridder stuns with her eye for traditional costumes and fast-change shortcuts."
"It's filled with spectacle, a bit leisurely, beautifully costumed (by designer Alyssa Ridder)"
