Company

“They inhabit a set (designed by Beowulf Boritt) populated by tall trees, simple wooden furniture and a folksy onstage band.”~Ben Brantley, New York Times

 “Beowulf Boritt’s woodsy turntable set and Howell Binkley’s lighting frame the actors simply and effectively.”~Peter Marks, Washington Post

 “With a handsome woodsy set by Beowulf Boritt.”~Jesse Green, New York Magazine

 “Set designer Beowulf Boritt goes with a romantic take on an island of big trees.”~Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

 “Beowulf Boritt's simple set is made up of huge looming trees, with scattered tables, and chairs, and Howell Brinkley's lighting conveying wide open skies.”~Tim Teeman, Daily Beast

 “Beowulf Boritt’s set is bare in the best way possible, with one turntable and trees surrounding the outer corners of the stage.”~Clare Lockhart, Entertainment Monthly

"These and all other episodes are enacted on a single set, where Beowulf Boritt’s striking design and Howell Binkley’s lush lighting transport us from airport to plane and other locations around the island."  ~ Alyssa Dyksterhouse , Seattle Weekly News

"If Beowulf Boritt’s amazing set for “Come from Away” doesn’t wow playgoers upon entering La Jolla Playhouse’s Potiker Theatre, then the opening musical number surely will."   ~Diana Saenger, La Jolla Light

"Director Christopher Ashley ...  is in his element here. His crackerjack troupe of 12 skillfully shape-shifts among natives, passengers and officials back home, shuffling set designer Beowulf Boritt’s furniture pieces into a range of evocative public and private spaces hauntingly delineated by Howell Binkley’s lighting."          ~Bob Verini, Variety
