"Beowulf Boritt's set, chiefly stacks of occasionally glowing oil drums, looks terrific."
~Sam Thielman Variety 

"Also cheerfully ingenious: Beowulf Boritt's set, a mountain of oil drums that transforms into Sarah's home and various other locations."
~Jeremy Gerard, Bloomberg News 

"Beowulf Boritt, an artist of almost infinite cleverness, provides an enormous pile of waste barrels, which opens up to reveal various other locations, including the library, Babs' office, Sarah's living room (with a "Home Sweet Home" sign placed sideways), and the beauty shop where Babs and Ma have their showdown. It's a big design for Off Broadway, yet it retains the gleefully tacky aesthetic so central to the source material."
~David Barbour, Lighting & Sound America

"A guy appears at the top of a huge pyramid of grimy oil drums (the main element of the consistently and surprisingly clever scenic design by Beowulf Boritt)"
~Andy Propst, Theatremania
