Abingdon Theatre Company - CUT THROAT 

The costume changes will astound you (flexible and evocative costumes by Orli Nativ) as the supporting players embody the various helicopter parents, child prodigies, and clipboard fascists that make up the toddler-industrial complex.” –Zachary Stewart, Theatremania.com


Godlight Theatre Company - COOL HAND LUKE 

“The talented people at Godlight Theatre Company don't merely adapt novels to the stage; they take a book, boil it down to its essence, and reimagine it in strikingly theatrical terms. ...Watching the company at work, it's easy to think, why doesn't everyone try it? Clearly, it is harder than it looks, for nobody else is doing it…Orli Nativ's costumes contrast the filthy, sweat-stained prisoners' outfits with the women's neat-as-a-pin day dresses and Boss Godfrey's menacing uniform. …This is the rare theatre company that contributes something indisputably unique to the New York theatre scene.” –David Barbour, lightingandsoundamerica.com

Godlight veterans Maruti Evans, (lighting and set design) and Orli Nativ (costumes) give the show an arresting, chiaroscuro visual style that encapsulates the story’s ambiguities eases the show’s novel-like transitions between different time frames and locations.” – Ethan Kanfer 


Godlight Theatre Company - James Dickey's DELIVERANCE 

Nominated for FOUR 2014 Drama Desk Awards

"Godlight Theatre Company’s James Dickey's DELIVERANCE  at 59E59 is a stark, barebones adaptation...In its simplicity it is more a meditation on the themes of the novel...Maruti Evans’ brilliant lighting, Ien Denio’s evocative sound design, Orli Nativ's exacting and witty costumes and the original music by Danny Blackburn & Bryce Hodgson helped flesh out the story." - Jeannie Lieberman, Theatrescene.com

"With, jeans, cargo pants, utility vests, hunting boots, and plaid shirts, costume designer Orli Nativ has outfitted the cast with rustic authenticity. ...The highly successful artistic collaboration of all the creative talents involved makes this Deliverance a boldly striking work of uniquely theatrical storytelling." - Darryl Reilley, Theaterscene.net


The Summer Theatre of New Canaan - HAIRSPRAY!

Nominated for Best Costume Design, Broadwayworld.com CT 2014

"The Broadway musical HAIRSPRAY won several Tony and Drama Desk Awards. Summer Theatre of New Canaan's production deserves as many accolades for its exceptional production team and stellar cast. ...The colorfully flashy and nostalgically accurate costumes by Orli Nativ complete the look for that unmistakable 60's style."  - Cindy Cardozo, Broadwayworld.com



"The production values are top notch, particularly the costumes by Orli Nativ, who has beautifully created all of our favorite candy and chocolate as apparel – especially the gown worn by Cookie Conwell (Emily McNamara) with a top piece looking like dripping milk chocolate and a bottom of carefully placed lace looking like the wrapper." -June Baird TheatrePizazz.com


Godlight Theatre Company - THE PILO FAMILY CIRCUS 

"But the real stunner of the show is its incredible design. All design elements worked together to create a theatrical feast for the eyes, to truly create this twisted circus and impose a constant feeling of impending doom. Orli Nativ’s costume design is outstanding.” –Gina Femia New York Theatre Review

Orli Nativ’s costumes... create the demonic circus atmosphere with full-blooded zest.-Joel Benjamin, TheaterScene.net 

"The costumes by Orli Nativ are wonderful to look at, especially the clown outfits. All of which are nicely bright and garish, as befitting the characters in question. The lighting and sound effects, by Maruti Evans and Ien DeNio respectively, are also superb." -Judd Hollander, Stagebuzz.com

A special note of attention goes to light designer Lois Catanazaro and costume designer Orli Nativ because the sexy burlesque wardrobe and creative lighting play such an important role in Magic Trick.” – Aurin Squire, NY Theatre Review
