"Tony Award-nominated Beowulf Boritt has created a set so incredible, suitable, and magical that it deserves top billing along with its stat-studded cast.
The look and sound of the play by the team of Boritt (scenic and costume design), Clifton Taylor (lighting design), and Broken Chord (sound design and composition) complete a perfect vision of the play with descending feasts of bounty, a suspended harpy, snowflakes and twinkle lights, a loping hellhound, dark Italian suits, Juicy gangsta sweats, and flawless and clear music.".
~M. Lance Lusk, D Magazine

"The island where the Italians crash is stunning, described as a desert but stylishly and simplistically decked out with white trees and cliffs that make it seem like a snowy dreamscape.
As for the crash, take note of the Lost reference, which changes the method of transportation that jump-starts the play and gives way to a modern-dress black-and-white staging.
The only pop of color comes when the comic characters Trinculo and Stephano are tempted by flashy new duds: Juicy Couture sweatsuits"
"[T]he appearance of Boritt's dog conjures images of one of the Bard's most famous stage directions, from The Winter's Tale. The simplicity and cohesion in design really put the focus on the poetry."
~Mark Lowry, Fort Worth Star Telegram
















“Beowulf Boritt’s set and costumes are striking and inventive.” ~Lawson Taitte, Dallas Morning News
