PLSN article about the set.

Broadway World article about the set

“The talent that went into this show is out of this world. Dazzling sets by Beowulf Boritt and breathtaking costumes by William Ivey Long pay proper homage to the original designers. (Look! That’s original set designer Boris Aronson’s name etched into the set for “Follies” — as if we could ever forget.)” ~Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“The song is performed in front of a Roy Lichtenstein-style pixel-art panel, an example of the resourceful work of designer Beowulf Boritt in conjuring distinct settings for each musical referenced. Those include a Ziegfeld-esque confection to usher in the "Beautiful Girls" of Follies; a scaffold apartment block for Company; New York fire escapes for West Side Story; a mini pie shop for Sweeney Todd; a glittering web for Kiss of the Spider Woman; and a candlelit, subterranean lair for Phantom of the Opera. Starting from a bare stage with a ghost light, the design mix of physical sets with old-fashioned painted backcloths and projections works effectively. “ David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“There’s also great pleasure in the clever, quickly shifting work done by both William Ivey Long and scenic designer Beowulf Boritt as they pay homage to the original concepts by a host of legendary designers” ~Sara Holdren, New York Magazine

"Beowulf Boritt's cleverly designed sets fly in and out of the picture-frame proscenium stage at the Orb. Particularly impressive are the steel-frame sets for Company apparently inspired by Boris Aronson's original designs, and Molina and Valentin's bare prison cell which reverses to become Mrs Lovett's pie shop." ~Bonny Loo, Broadway World Tokyo

"Beowulf Boritt's scenery is a loving tribute to William and Jean Eckert, Boris Aronson, and Maria Bjornson, and many other greats, the original designers' names tucked away in each set like the Ninas in a Hirschfeld caricature. I especially liked the comic book drop for Superman and the "Loveland" set for Follies: a giant pink Victorian valentine, with cherubs and lovers peeking from behind a surface of lace, which makes a stunning impression before collapsing in a heap upstage." ~David Barbour, L&SA
