"Many of these sorts of whimsical yet poignant touches ... deepen our experience of not only the world on the stage but of our own world as well. Illuminated by Thomas Dunn’s transportive lighting design, Arnulfo Maldonado’s set—white, simple and modern—has a subtle sense of unreality to it, of a place that is in between worlds." -- on ILLUSIONS, Stage and Cinema.
