"The tables in the basement have been laid for reminiscence. There are 10 of them, solid wooden furniture, covered with the detritus you find at estate sales: glassware, china, bibelots, books, even a cache of manual typewriters. It's the sort of display that makes you think about your own inventory of passed-down possessions, of the lives these discarded objects might have led and of the absent owners who once animated them. Thus is the mood set for the Transport Group's shyly charming revival...Those tables become the command stations for 10 actresses who are also of a certain vintage."
-Ben Brantley / THE NEW YORK TIMES (Critics Pick)
"Designer Dane Laffrey furnishes the open room with ten-dinising room tables, each strewn with a collection...Wherever we look, our sight is full of empty chairs."
-Helen Shaw / Time Out
