"Despite the obvious limitations of Roundabout Underground's studio space, once again a design team has provided highly professional work. Arnulfo Maldonado's set depicts Samantha's characterless apartment -- clearly she is too bedridden to care about decorating -- but it also stands in reasonably well for Layne's office, her bedroom, and the bakery where Dom works." -- on KINGDOM COME, Lighting and Sound America. "The pair's halting initial conversations together—Samantha mocking in part, Layne as desperate as she is hopeful—give way gently to a more open acceptance of each other and themselves. (Each of these is staged with the performers speaking their lines while accompanied by Darrel Maloney's fast-moving projections of the heavily chat speak onto the walls of Arnulfo Maldonado's properly oppressive Nevada living room set.)" -- on KINGDOM COME, Talkin' Broadway.
