"Scenic designer Beowulf Borrit's gritty stage set-up, which boasts three stories of catwalks, a truly panoramic width (at the stage's farthest reaches, the actors nearly walk among the audience) and even a few water-filled crevices on the stage's main floor (whose dramatic reflections and splashes only add to the spectacle), lays the base for the visual onslaught. The audience is served a complete sensory feast."
~Pete Freedman, The Dallas Observer
"Beowulf Borritt's scenic design is a contortion of metal, wood, and water. A long, winding metal staircase serves as its centerpiece,while in front is a long, dark & sinister catwalk. Anchoring the stage is wooden platforms, but underneath is flowing water. The entire setis framed by decaying walls with punched holes and metal beams. It's a sublime design that allows so much of the staging to come to life."
