"...the kind of clever, multi-scene set design (by Heather Kenyon) that inspires audiences to applaud the set changes..."
- Jean Schiffman, SFGate
"The frequently revolving sets by scenic designer Heather Kenyon come across as exceptionally imaginative, a proverbial wonder to behold."
- Woody Weingarten, Aisle Seat Review
"All this action takes place on a multi-dimensional set (designed by Heather Kenyon) that takes us from street scenes to the interior of the Hot Box nightclub to Havana to New York's sewers, with smooth and elegant transitions in between, making brilliant use of the theater's turntable."
- Patrick Thomas, Talkin' Broadway
"As is San Francisco Playhouse tradition, the scenic (Heather Kenyon) and costume design (Kathleen Qiu) are aces. Sometimes superfluous, the company's signature turntable stage is put to excellent use. And Kenyon's transition from Manhattan streets to an underground sewer scene is a treat."
- Jim Gladstone, Bay Area Reporter
