"Beowulf Boritt's claustrophobic set, with its diaphanous scrim through which the outside world beckons, echoes the theme."
~Naomi Siegel, New York Times

"The appropriately dim atmospherics provided by scenic, lighting, sound and costume designers Beowulf Boritt, Sebastian Paczynski, Brett Jarvis and Martin Pakledinaz reflect the hopeless entrapment of a middle-class family reduced to poverty."
~Steve Parks, Newsday

"Designer Beowulf Boritt has hit one out of the park with his evocative 1930s set. We can feel the oppression of the neighboring buildings and brief glimpses of the sky beyond. There’s something lyrically haunting about this urban setting that is also eerily familiar.”    
~Sag Harbor Express

"hugely effective set of Beowulf Boritt, which captures not only the poetry of the play, but the faintly seedy St. Louis location."
~Lee Davis, South Hampton Press
