“Ryan McGettigan has designed one of the best sets of the season . . . You simply must experience this magical set to believe its brilliance.” - Buzz Belmont, Critic’s Critic

“The play is enhanced by the expert design work of Claremarie Verheyen, Tim Thomson and Kirk Markley and especially Ryan McGettigan's imposing setting, the archive of floor-to-ceiling shelves and file drawers. In Act 2, the set provides its own surprise coup de theatre, which is truly magical.” - Everett Evans, Houston Chronicle

“Ryan McGettigan, as usual, has designed a superb set for the show. His Scenic Design is overwhelmingly cluttered and unusual upon first appearance; however Kirk Markley's Lighting Design expertly showcases its genius by transforming seeming piles of junk into clues that indicate setting and locale. The surreal nuances, such as the filing cabinet that bends into the floor and the floating sink in the first scene instantly hook audiences, visually explaining that this play is grounded in reality but takes audiences out of it and twists it for their enjoyment.” - David Clarke, Broadway World: Houston
