"The car itself, designed by Dane Laffrey, is a remarkable vehicle, aided in its mostly impartial performance by Tyler Micoleau's lighting and Leah Gelpe's sound and projection design."
-Mike Kuchwara / ASSOCIATED PRESS
"Of course, the car itself is the third character and the one that Dane Laffrey has designed is as full of rage and nearly as brutalizing as its passengers."
-Harvey Perr / STAGE AND CINEMA
"...the staging includes imaginative visual flourishes - the car breaks into pieces, as if to accentuate the emotional gulf between the riders."
-Frank Scheck / NEW YORK POST
"It's apparent that Ky (Joseph Adams) has a decidedly uneasy relationship with his son Denny (Dane DeHann) from the moment they're discovered in Ky's car, which is effectively suggested by set designer Dane Laffrey using a skeleton of seats, side panels and rear window."
-Andy Probst / BACKSTAGE
"SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE takes place almost entirely in a car. As tightly designed by Dane Laffrey, this is the kind of claustrophobic and inescapable space that, unlike a dining room table, forces you to converse with your parent."
-Allison Taylor / NYTHEATRE.COM
