"It seems right that the Linda Gross Theater has been reconfigured for in-the-round seating and a blank circle of a set (by Dane Laffrey) that keeps cast members in intimate view. We're all part of this discussion, including characters who are long dead but haven't stopped talking"
-Ben Brantley / THE NEW YORK TIMES (*Critics Pick)
"Set designer Dane Laffrey has replaced the Atlantic's usual stage and seating with wooden bleachers built up on all sides of a small playing area within the renovated church...the amphitheater arrangement [has] the effect of forcing a deep engagement with the story, not only bringing characters nearer, but suggesting that the audience has a rooting interest in the outcome."
-Jesse Green / NEW YORK MAGAZINE
"The set design, by Dane Laffrey, who is enjoying a breakout moment this season (he also has pring Awakening and Fool For Love on Broadway), does away with the Atlantic's usual configuration for an in-the-round staging using audience bleachers..."
-David Barbour / LIGHTING AND SOUND AMERICA
