“Director Stephen Brackett and Tony-winning set designer Beowulf Boritt make the action swift, and the glossy, 80s-like setting sleek and techy without New Wave kitsch. No theater piece has made tech-nerdiness look or sound as modern and warm.” ~A.D.Amorosi, Variety

“Beowulf Boritt’s set, accented by fluorescent frames, ingeniously suggests lives held in thrall by technology.” ~Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“Stephen Brackett's supercharged production maintains that winning combination through stage pictures rarely seen outside of an animated feature. His multidimensional blocking is facilitated by Beowulf Boritt's sleek set of frames within frames, making it appear as though the show is taking place within a computer. It also offers multiple surfaces for Alex Basco Koch's eye-popping digital projections.” ~Zachary Stewart, Theatermania

“Alex Basco Koch’s projections paired with Beowulf Boritt’s scenic design provide an effective mix of high school hallway and hallucinatory hi-tech.” ~Stanford Friedman, New York Theatre Guide

“The production, directed by Stephen Brackett, is a raucous good time, with a gleefully silly, hyperkinetic air that invades its every facet, including the set by Beowulf Boritt, which resembles a computer interior.” ~Matt Windman, AM New York
