“All the scenes are striking, but Borrit’s masterpiece is San Francisco, the Emerald City of eco-consciousness, where the background of perfectly groomed subdivisions under a limpid sky looks like an ad for the lifestyle that, by now, has revealed its ghastly price-tag. Returning to Louisiana, mission accomplished, she takes some satisfaction from the sight of the bloated McMansion that has arisen where before there stood only a miserable shack on stilts.”      
~Robert Johnson, The Newark Star Ledger 

  “Aided immensely by Beowulf Boritt's striking set pieces, Taylor-Corbett's clever and efficient staging whisks the action dazzlingly from the bayou to a sleazy cabaret, a Hollywood movie set, a high-fashion photo shoot, a cheap hotel room, and a ritzy palace.” 
~ Lisa Jo Sagolla, BackStage 

“Aided by, Beowulf Boritt's spare but decorative sets.” 
~Robert Greskovic, Wall Street Journal
