"Scenic designer Sasha Jin Schwartz's tasteful, low-key stage space always serves rather than overwhelms the action, but she does receive a tear-jerking fluorish of a moment in the play's finale, when Porkalob pays her ultimate tribute to Maria Sr."  - Tales of Lohr

"The set is striking with a modicum of stage props. The center stage is highlighted and framed as an intricate lounge setting for musical numbers. Different stage levels allow Porkalob to move up and down, often showing a different location and/or time as her story unwinds. Kudos to scenic designer Sasha Jin Schwartz" - Burgh Vivant
