"Magnificent set. Onstage, several wooden beams representing the masts of a slave ship stand askew. Around them, large pieces of jagged glass form a sloping mountain, as if the ship were breaking through the ocean surface, water cascading everywhere as it rises from its grave. Scenic designer Beowulf Boritt has created a violent and haunting sculpture that doubles as a multi-tiered performance platform."
~David Ng, The Village Voice
"Beowulf Boritt's satisfying shipwreck of a set."
~Jeff Lewonczyk, Time Out New York
