Ruffled, racy and sexy-sheer spring fashion steals the spotlight at The Gordy, Stages Repertory Theatre’s fabulous new $35 million setup a block south of its former Montrose location. Here, a warehouse with bunker-thick concrete walls that once inconspicuously housed storage and restoration facilities for the MFA has become a vibrant, state-of-the-art production facility with three separate stages, 608 seats and 70,000 total square feet. Silence your phones, unwrap all candy, and let’s get on with the show!
