Andreane Neofitou Costume Design
Internationally renowned costume designer Andy Neofitou’s highly acclaimed work for the Royal Shakespeare Company over many years led to her outstanding success with LES MISÉRABLES directed by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, and her beautifully researched and detailed costumes won her a coveted Tony Award Nomination on Broadway. Andy has continued to work on the show since its ‘re-conception’ in 2009, the 25th Anniversary performance at London’s O2 Arena in 2010, and subsequent productions and tours in the UK, the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan and Europe – all as the London production continues its record-breaking run in the West End. She also designed the costumes for MISS SAIGON directed by Nicholas Hytner at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which went on to become another huge and continuing international hit. Andy’s other costume designs in London and the West End include the highly successful GREASE which began life at the Dominion Theatre, went on to the Piccadilly Theatre and a long running tour of the UK and Europe, GONE WITH THE WIND and THE BAKER’S WIFE both directed by Trevor Nunn, THE FAR PAVILIONS, TIMON OF ATHENS at the Young Vic with David Suchet in the title role, also directed by Trevor Nunn, PETER PAN at the Royal National Theatre directed by John Caird, and the arena production of Bizet’s opera CARMEN at The Royal Albert Hall. Among Andy’s many international credits are NABUCCO directed by Elijah Moshinsky for New York’s Metropolitan Opera, MISS JULIE in Athens, the musical JANE EYRE directed by John Caird on Broadway - for which she received an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination - and Cameron Mackintosh’s revised version of MARTIN GUERRE also in the United States. Her designs for the Royal Shakespeare Company include THE CHANGELING directed by Michael Attenborough, Bill Alexander’s production of THE MERCHANT OF VENICE with Antony Sher, and Fair Maid Of The West directed by Trevor Nunn which was the inaugural production at the Swan Theatre at Stratford and later transferred to the Mermaid Theatre in London. She designed the costumes for HEDDA GABLER with Glenda Jackson at the Aldwych, in Canada and the USA; ONCE IN A LIFETIME at the Aldwych and the Piccadilly; PETER PAN which enjoyed three separate runs at the Barbican, and NICHOLAS Nickleby at Stratford and in the United States winning the Outer Circle Critics’ Award for Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design. Among Andy’s film credits are "Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead" starring Richard Dreyfuss directed by the author Tom Stoppard, and "Still Life" with Roger Daltrey.
