"The kitchen is filled with earth tones—jars, canisters, boxes—along with colorful, well-worn tablecloths and napkins. As designed by the accurate Arnulfo Maldonado, the quilt-like set is the place where much of what the characters do stops and starts, as another kind of action stops and starts around them." -- on GENERATIONS, The New Yorker.
"Soho Rep has developed a reputation for reinventing the interior of its theater space, at 46 Walker Street, for each production it hosts. But the transformation for its newest resident, playwright debbie tucker green's poem-play generations, co-produced with the Play Company, might be the most elaborate yet. Set designer Arnulfo Maldonado has covered the floor in an inch of burnt-sienna sand, and replaced the walls with corrugated metal slabs in many different colors, behind faded images evoking South-African national and musical culture." -- on GENERATIONS, Slant Magazine.
