"On a stylish set by Beowulf Boritt, featuring fire escapes and stoops silhouetted against blood-red vistas of the neighborhood, the action moves at a brisk, almost cinematic clip." ~Charles Isherwood, New York Times

“The sleek and simple sets, by Beowulf Boritt, featuring period fire escapes and storefronts, are light on their feet, sliding into place and reassembling almost in time to the music.” ~Charles Isherwood, New York Times

From the opening image, there’s no doubt we’re on the rough side of the Bronx in 1960. Howell Binkley’s spectacular lighting design throws a pulsing red glow across the starkly beautiful but precariously stacked levels of wrought-iron fire escapes designed by Beowulf Boritt in the manner of the great Louis Sullivan. Although the color scheme (red!) and materials (iron!) define this place as a tough neighborhood, there are clear signs of humanizing touches everywhere: a faded Italian flag draped across one fire escape landing; window boxes of cheap but bright flowers; and the piercing call-to-dinner orders from Italian grandmothers all up and down the block.”  ~Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“You get a strong sense for the time and location thanks to the work of scenic designer Beowulf Boritt who does such a standup job that you can almost smell what this street corner on Belmont Ave. must have been like.” ~Danny Groner, Huffington Post

Beowulf Boritt's sets expertly evoke a romanticized mid-century Italian-American Bronx.” ~Patrick Maley, NJ.com

Set designer Beowulf Boritt has been featured for weeks now on a television commercial for HP Spectre x360 and Windows 10, showing off his creations for "A Bronx Tale." They're beautiful to see in person.” ~Dave Quinn, NBC New York

“Scenic designer Beowulf Boritt evokes this locale, along with many others of the Bronx neighborhoods, with affectionate stylization. ~Frank Scheck, Hollywood reporter

“Beowulf Boritt’s gritty urban scenic design also contribute to the overall dramatic effectiveness.” ~Mark Windman, AM New York

“Thornton gives us a wistful welcome to the streets of his character's youth, realized to stunning effect by the towers of shadowy fire escapes lining Beowulf Boritt's set.” ~Hayley Levitt, Theatermania

Beowulf Boritt’s picturesque mean-streets sets.” ~Linda Winer, Newsday

"The Broadway version has athletic choreography by Sergio Trujillo, and giant fire escapes that float on- and offstage, scenic design by Beowulf Boritt." ~Zachary Stewart, Theatremania

 "They croon under a street lamp before Beowulf Boritt's striking set of fire escapes and front stoops, among other nostalgic elements of '60s blue-collar Bronx living." ~Haley Levitt, Theatermania

"Beowulf Boritt’s set design reflects the apartment complexes on Belmont Avenue. A striking scene on a pier, with a red sky background, is a perfect setting for Lorenzo’s please to his son to “Look to Your Heart.” ~Liz Keill, TAP NJ

"The stylized wrought-iron fire-escapes by set designer Beowulf Boritt provide the necessary sense of place. There is craftsmanship in the show's overall design." ~Jim Beckerman, The Bergen Record

"Scenic design, by Beowulf Boritt,.. An authentic backdrop for an ethnic neighborhood in the 1960s, the set has the perfect dimensions for a game of stick ball, with a homerun being somewhere in the third row of the orchestra." ~John Kazmark, NJ Hills Media Group
