Beautiful Bouning "Once Upon a Mattress" At IWU
“Susong does a very good job keeping the right 50s feel, aided by Nicholas Bursoni’s nifty costumes and Andrea Healy’s pretty castle courtyard set.” - Julie Kistler “A Follow Spot”
"Mattress" has everything going for it
“Elegantly costumed by Nicholas Bursoni, the ladies of the court look like young Audrey Hepburns in their black-and-white cocktail dresses.” Marcia Weiss “Pantagraph”
Condomonium: A CHOICES Fundraising Fashion Event
"Third place was a pink, purple, and yellow two-piece design by Nick Bursoni, tying in an ever-feminine bustier-style top with a flowing, nearly ombré condom skirt. Not one to waste, Nick created a condom wrapper necklace that would cause double-take after double-take on the street." Cheryl Malik "SQ Modern Media"
