“Daniel Goldstein’s stylish, sexy production of Christopher Hampton’s play “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” has more on its mind than style and sex…with a Chanel logo here, a Lagerfeld boot there, and broadly American accents all over the place, Goldstein and his team make sure we see the parallels between decadent 18th-century French aristocrats and those closer to our own lives….The costumes [are] brilliantly conceived by newcomer Erin Olson.” – The Boston Globe

“The Huntington Theater Company’s opulent revival…mixes period with contemporary razzle-dazzle. Erin Olson’s costumes stuff pinstriped Karl Lagerfeld inspirations into high boots and bolster Vivienne Westwood with 18th-century panniers...It’s all very striking.” –The Boston Phoenix
