“Maggie Morgan's costumes communicate many nuances of character. Catherine's garishly red ball gown is perfectly not-quite-right – the choice of a socially insecure young woman uncomfortable with New York's high-society rules and manners. The work of Buderwitz and Morgan are part of an impressive synergy in Benson's elegant staging.” 
THE HEIRESS  South Coast Rep, Paul Hodgins, Orange County Register, Oct 26, 2008 

 

“...Maggie Morgan’s costumes subtly communicate important changes in the story.” VISITING MR. GREENE, Pasadena Playhouse  Steven Oxman, VARIETY, September 21, 1999

“I especially want to praise...the handsome uniforms and brocade and lace gowns created by costumer Maggie Morgan...”  ARMS AND THE MAN, NJSF     Simon Saltzman, Daily Record, July, 1993

“...lush and lavish attention to detail....Costume designer Maggie Morgan...has come up with a brilliant array.  The costumes suit the actors, telling us something of their characters without overshadowing them”  ARMS AND THE MAN, NJSF      Liz Keill, Independent Press, July 14, 1993

 

“To start with the positives... the best things about this production are the sets and costumes.  ...if Maggie Morgan’s costumes are any indication,... it was a fine time to be a member of the privileged class.  The women’s costumes are stunning with their layers of lace and ruffles and vaguely oriental arabesques and touches of shine.”  ARMS AND THE MAN, NJSF     Suzanne Sampson, The Citizen, July 14, 1993

“Misalliance,” which is receiving a most attractive mounting at South Coast Repertory under the direction of Martin Benson, is like a river overflowing its banks….Maggie Morgan’s costumes add color to scenery that, like Shaw’s writing, imaginatively blends the natural with the artificial.” MISALLIANCE, South Coast Rep  Charles McNulty  Los Angeles Times,  9/19/10

“Maggie Morgan's attractive mix of jeans, boots and blouses in period silhouette evokes the kind of attire thesps don to keep themselves in the appropriate mood”  CAMELOT, Pasadena Playhouse   Bob Verini  - Variety,   1/17/10

THE NIGHT IS A CHILD,  Pasadena Playhouse          Charlotte Stoudt   Los Angeles Times, 9/6/09

"from gloomy to bright...expertly defined...Designer Maggie Morgan accomplishes...transition with costume. In London, the women (excluding Lady Caroline, who is consistently glamourous), trudge in restricting gray-as-a-winter-sky suits. In Italy, the glide on and offstage in lightweight spring-colored dresses..."  ENCHANTED APRIL  Arizona Theatre company,  K.M. Sarver, Midtown Messenger 10/20/08


“…the Playhouse has… its as usual excellent production values… complemented by…Maggie Morgan's costumes, mostly 1970's biker clothes, jeans, leathers and vests, reminiscent of Hair…[with] one mid-show burst of applause for Rusty's pirate costume which sports a parrot on the shoulder.”  MASK: A NEW MUSICAL Laura Hitchcock, CURTAIN UP, March 21, 2007

THE HAUNTING OF WINCHESTER, San Jose Rep Judy Richter, AISLE SAY, 9/05
